By Avaz Inc. $0.99

Developer's Description

Communication Adventure is a unique app, specially developed for training communication partners (parents, teachers, caregivers and even speech therapists) of children who are non-verbal or who have difficulty speaking. The app has been designed with the vision of empowering the communication partners, with the skills required for effective communication with the child, under various settings.Learning communication strategies cant get simpler and more fun! The app is a treasure house of resources for communication strategies, through Aided Language Input, presented in the form of tips, motivations and practical conversation ideas for communication and language development. The ideas presented in the app can be applied, regardless of the type of the alternative communication system being used with the child. Communication Adventure comes to you from Avaz Inc, the makers of Avaz, the AAC(Augmentative and Alternative Communication) app that has received a number of international awards, including being on MITs list of Top 35 Innovations in 2011. You will be learning the communication strategies through a simulated character - Johnny. Johnny, the hero of the app, is a cute 7-year old boy, who loves apple pies and Barney! He has complex communication needs and has recently been introduced to alternative communication. You are presented with several activities of Johnnys daily life e.g. mealtime, TV time, shared reading etc. For each activity, you are presented with typical conversation scenarios and are asked simple questions; you are required to choose the most appropriate response from the given options; and for response, there is an associated tip / learning. You can access only one activity at a time. You are required to complete the activity game within a time limit of 3 minutes AND with 3 or less incorrect responses, to be able to unlock the next activity. Once you complete a game/activity successfully, you collect tips for it, which includes conversation ideas and strategies to help your child communicate. Play the games and have fun while you learn! Disclaimer: The tips and strategies suggested here may not apply to all children; they need to be adapted and tailored, based on each child's individual responses and differences. Speak to your childs therapist for advice. PRAISE FOR Comm Adventure You have a fabulous list of tips.

The overall messages are great; I like how you encourage language expansion in simple, discrete ways; encourage parents to provide choices and use yes/no questions; and discourage imposition of adult choices in interaction, thus providing greater access to child "voice."- Lucas Steuber, MS-SLP, Founder-CEO of Language Craft, Portland, Oregon WHY CHOOSE JOHNNYS COMM ADVENTURE?Learn communication strategies through fun, interactive gamesPlay games presented in small manageable chunksPlay at your convenience and leisureApply the learning at diverse settings home, school, outdoorApply the learning regardless of the communication system that the child uses MAIN FEATURESInteractive games for learning communication strategiesGames based on 8 daily activitiesPractical and easy-to-implement tips for facilitating communication and language developmentIdeas for conversation during typical daily activities Simple ideas for motivating your child to communicateFilter by Activity and Category to view Tips, Motivations, Conversation ideasFor questions or comments about the reach out to us at: support@avazapp.comVisit our website for other details: http://www.avazapp.com/
