Sidekicks makes it easy for parents to talk to their autistic child, and share in their intense passions -- a defining characteristic of autism. Through active participation in your childs strong interests, you can help them communicate better, grow emotionally and develop deeper relationships, all while having fun together!
Our unique combination of messaging service and YouTube search engine allows you to play, pause and discuss popular kid-friendly content that you and your child share with each other. Talk about what youre watching -- about their day, tasks, feelings, or just have fun! its up to you...and them!
Sidekicks requires two devices. Simply download Sidekicks to a single iPhone or iPad, and well quickly guide you through the rest of the setup process!
In early Sidekicks testing, parents using Sidekicks for ten or more sessions saw an improvement in their childs abilities to regulate their emotions and form independent questions.
