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.

- Each activity can be assigned a time and a daily child routine (such as morning / bedtime routines, in class / recess etc.).
- Designed to work online and offline. Caregivers can continue to use the app even when located in areas with poor internet connectivity.
- Sync with the therapist’s system via WiFi or Data.

FREE TRIAL
The app comes with a 2 weeks’ free trial after-which a monthly subscription needs to be purchased.
The subscription can be purchased either by the therapist using the therapist system, or by the caregivers through the app (AppStore).
The cost varies by the number of months, for example a yearly subscription costs $5.99 per month. The app supports auto renewal that can be managed through AppStore. The cost is per therapy program, not per device.

SensoryTreat protects your private health data securely. Tablets and some mobile devices may not be supported.

SensoryTreat requires iOS 10+ version.

MSE Genie

MSE Genie

TFH Special Needs Toys

With MSE Genie a Multi Sensory Environment can be controlled via iPad or iPhone.

MSE Genie uses bluetooth to communicate with MSE Rewards produced by TFH Special Needs Toys.

The MSE Genie is simple to set up:

In Settings identify new Rewards (you can have up to 12).
eg. Bubble Column 1; Bubble Column 2; Hurricane Wall; Fiber Optic Curtain; Colour Wash; Aroma diffuser; Musical Squares; Video Projector.

MSE Genie is simple to adjust:

In Teacher Mode choose which Rewards are "in play" then choose how many buttons you want to present to the student.
You can make it very simple or fairly complex.

MSE Genie is brilliant to use:

In 'Student Mode' immediate reward control is via the tailored interface.
Accidental re-configuration is avoided thanks to a required double-press gesture in opposite corners.
