In early Sidekicks testing, parents using Sidekicks for ten or more sessions saw an improvement in their child’s 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
