App Store Description

Choice Boards is a simple but useful communication app. It is designed for children and adults with autism (ASD) or other conditions that make communication difficult. Can be used as a form of Augmentative and Alternate Communication (AAC).

***** Polish description below / Polski opis na dole *****

Choice Boards can be used for communication:
- About choices in daily life, such as "What would you like to eat for lunch?", "Where would you like to go for a walk?", "What do you want to watch on TV?", etc.
- Between patients with communication disorders and health care providers i.e. to help localize the pain source or communicate other symptoms.
- About any topics using the picture board as a conversation blueprint containing pictures of related things to talk about, like: "What happened during the day", "Things we can do in Winter", "What gifts did you get for Christmas?".
- About shopping lists, things to do or daily schedules.
- About rewards during an ABA or other learning session, replacing a velcro choice board
- As a general AAC communication help

Choice Boards allows a parent or teacher to create and manage multiple choice boards. Each choice board consists of cards with pictures and text.
Once a choice board is prepared, we can present it to the child for choosing one of the cards. The choice can be made by tapping a card. It gets enlarged to clearly indicate what was chosen. Additionally the card's text is read aloud using the iPad's voice synthesizer.

Please note that the app does not contain any ready to use picture library. You can do web search for pictures with Safari, save them to the Photo Library and later use in Choice Boards. Or you can use pictures taken with the iPad's camera and saved in the Photo Library.
Many AAC symbols are available at http://sensymbols.org/ or http://sclera.be

***** Polski opis / Polish description *****

"Tablice wyboru" to prosta ale użyteczna aplikacja, która pomaga w komunikacji. Jest przeznaczona dla dzieci i dorosłych z autyzmem lub innym schorzeniem utrudniającym komunikację. Może być używana jako forma alternatywnej i wspomagającej komunikacji (AAC).

Tablice wyboru mogą być używane do komunikacji:
- na temat wyborów w życiu codziennym, takich jak "Co chciałbyś zjeść na obiad?", "Dokąd chcesz iść na spacer?", "Co chciałbyś obejrzeć w telewizji?", itp.
- między pacjentem z problemami komunikacyjnymi a personelem medycznym w celu zlokalizowania bólu lub komunikowania innych objawów,
- na dowolny temat używając tablic jako schematu rozmowy przez umieszczenie na niej obrazków związanych z tematem rozmowy, np. "Co zdarzyło się w ciągu dnia", "Co możemy robić zimą", "Jakie prezenty dostałeś na gwiazdkę", itp.
- o listach zakupowych, rzeczach do zrobienia lub planie dnia,
- w trakcie sesji nauki (np. ABA) do wyboru nagród,
