The move from Junior to Secondary School is a worrying time for many children, particularly those with Autistic Spectrum Disorder, or a learning disability. The uncertainty over the transition can have an effect on the child’s feelings, emotions and behaviour.
This App gives children the opportunity to discuss common situations and difficulties that they may face in Secondary School.
14 scenarios show situations a student may be experiencing for the first time. Response pictures show ways of behaving which will encourage discussion about the ‘right’ thing to do. Encourage children to make their own suggestions.The App can record the discussions.
The App can be used in role-play and ‘rehearsal’ of social conversations. These are useful for small group work, and when working with children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder. There is a role play icon that shows these.
For children with dyslexia or reading difficulties the background of the text can be changed to yellow and the Text to Speech facility can also be used.
The teacher/therapist/parent can make notes on the App and email these together with recordings.
