Social Adventures

Social Adventures

all4mychild

The Social Adventures App provides clinicians, teachers and parents with a treasure trove of activity descriptions for teaching social skills and friendship. Children ages 3-13 with social needs such as those associated with Autism Spectrum Disorders, ADHD, NLD, Sensory Processing Disorders and social anxiety will gain confidence and success in navigating the rough waters of relationships.

Designed as a self-contained resource for running social cognition groups, each activity within the Social Adventures App can be used to augment other approaches. Developed and used over the course of 15 years by a team of SLP’s, OT’s and MSW’s, the Social Adventures App combines the discrete teaching of Social Catch Phrases with fundamental social skills using an engaging multi-disciplinary, multi-sensory approach to mastery.

Use the Social Adventures App to teach:
- Initiating interactions
- Maintaining interactions
- Advocating and negotiating
- Getting regulated
- Interpreting nonverbals
- Negotiating personal space
- Experiencing humor

IMAGINE! Social success for all children!

Features:
- Over 80 activities included to be used in groups, classrooms, play dates, and everywhere!
- Clear step by step instructions with separate parent tips section
- Social catch phrases that are easily generalized for use anywhere
- Kid-friendly and memorable visuals designed to be used for role play or cue cards
- Sample 8-week program to get started
- 3 additional 8 week collaborative generalization activities
- "What's in My Bag?" game included adorable graphics to reinforce social cognition and peer interaction
- direct links to iTunes to purchase other apps recommended for teaching social skills addressed in the Social Adventures App

But all of this is just the beginning. We have designed this app as an expandable platform upon which we can continue to provide new content. A collaborative and comprehensive resource of this size would cost at least $60.00 in book form and lack the flexibility of the Social Adventures App. Be sure to subscribe to all4mychild.com for updates and information on in-app purchases (e.g., new games and tools). We look forward to hearing your stories and feedback. Please feel free to follow us on Twitter and Facebook.

Touch Follow Alphabet

Touch Follow Alphabet

Hatch Works Ltd

** These apps contain no adverts or In-App-Purchases
** Thank you to all those who have helped support the work by purchasing the apps

Please note - this is not a letter tracing app.

It is intended for younger children, ideally BEFORE they start learning numbers and letters.

When children start to learn numbers and letters, not only do they have to learn a set of alien shapes but also assign meaning to them. By using this app, young minds get used to seeing the shapes that will be so important to them later in life.

I originally wrote it for my own 18 month old son but is suitable up to the age of 4 or 5. I found it very useful for when he was incorrectly recognising letters at pre-school.

The game helps them develop co-ordination skills. Sparkles add immediate feedback that worked very well with my own son. You can turn this off if you prefer.

I've added more options. You can now select which letters you want to work on individually.

There are 3 Apps in the series :

* Touch Follow Shapes
* Touch Follow Alphabet
* Touch Follow Numbers

Because it's aimed at younger children, the User Interface is deliberately simple, so they can play with minimal intervention.

Use Settings to change options for playing sounds and/or the sparkle effect

If you like it, please review it.
I do appreciate feedback and consider any suggestions made so please email me.

Shape app - *****
by Loopy1984 - Version 1.0 - Feb 4, 2012
Really lovely app so simple it's perfect for my little one to learn shapes and improve hand eye co ordination thanx!

Touch Follow Shapes - *****
by Mai Belle - Version 1.0 - Feb 4, 2012
Sometimes the simplest of ideas become the best, this is a multi- sensory app that brings writing shapes to life. This app makes drawing shapes easy with a glide of the finger and basically once the child keeps moving his/her finger they can't go wrong. Sensory learning is great for young children and special needs children including autism to learn and they should enjoy learning with this app. Brilliant...

Excellent! - *****
by New NJ mommy - Version 1.0 - Feb 6, 2012
I've been looking for exactly something like this! I'm an OT and love great apps. Only wish it started with vertical and horizontal.... And maybe progressed in a developmental sequence... Or let you choose which shapes came up. Still worth it. Downloading the alphabet and numbers now.

Fantastic - *****
by Tiwsit - Version 1.0 - Feb 7, 2012
Great colours and encouragement to write - love it

Engaging - *****
by HotDog Hallway - Version 1.0 - Feb 14, 2012
The colors and movements keep the kids engaged while they learn their numbers. Great for the classroom!!
