Choiceworks Calendar for iOS

By Bee Visual $4.99

Developer's Description

The Choiceworks Calendar is a powerful picture-based learning tool that helps children learn what is happening day-to-day throughout each month. By presenting the abstract concept of time in a structured, visual format,Choiceworks Calendar helps children organize their lives as well as understand sequence and time. Built by the same team that brought you the award winning Choiceworks App, the Choiceworks Calendar is the first app of its kind to provide a full-featured calendar designed with both the child and caregiver in mind.Key Features Easily create a visual calendar of upcoming events in a few minutes (examples: holidays, when visitors are coming, doctor appointments, vacations, sleepovers, parent returning from a trip or military duty) Image Library preloaded with over 275 images and audio Add your own images using your photo library, camera or use the preloaded image library to record your own audio and edit captions for limitless customizability Create multiple personalized calendars for use with multiple children or in a classroom setting Count Days Until: animated counter for the number of days until an upcoming event (example: How many days until my birthday?)

Calendars are challenging for children to grasp initially due to the abstract concepts of time, months, weeks and days. They are also time consuming for caregivers to setup and maintain. Choiceworks Calendar addresses all these challenges. For the caregivers, it provides a streamlined interface for creating, customizing, sharing and maintaining a calendar of upcoming events. For the child, it provides visual and audio supports that make using the calendar a delightful experience while they learn these abstract concepts of time.Children gain independence and personal responsibility by seeing helpful information such as which days are school days and which days are not. They also benefit by being informed of upcoming events such as a doctors appointment or celebrating a birthday. This clear, simple support provided ahead of time can help a child predict what is going to happen, thereby reducing anxiety. It helps children understand when there is a change in the routine so they can adapt, become more flexible and better behaved. Because the information is always visible on the calendar a child can refer to it as often as needed.Helpful TipsSimple: When first implementing Choiceworks Calendar, the calendar should be kept simple and be geared toward the child. By reviewing the calendar each day, the child will learn the days of the week, rote counting, number identification and parts of the daily, weekly, and monthly schedule.Visuals: Put images on the calendar that describes the most important activities of the day. Again, keep it simple. Only include what is important for the child on the calendar. Start small and gradually increase the amount of information presented as the child begins to understand the passage of time.Advance: As success with Choiceworks Calendar increases, visually plan out big projects and indicate deadlines for science projects, writing assignments, etc. Chunk larger projects into smaller, manageable steps that the child can complete each day. This will focus attention to the current task and lessen anxiety and distraction to other portions of project.Have your own tips or ideas?
