Sidekicks! for iOS

Developer's Description

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.

Check out feedback from a few of our early users:

"When I was watching him, he was connected emotionally and genuinely happy, like for 30 minutes he had a friend who was interested in him. The experience was intimate and real."

-- Parent of 14-year old with autism

"Sidekicks has made him more confident and more social with his peers. It's a great addition to his other therapies and activities.

--Parent of 10-year old with autism

"My son is absolutely loving it! I see so many possibilities for this app to help build his communication skills."

-- Parent of 12-year old with autism
