App Review: Social Skill Builder
[Source: Sublime Speech]
Over the past month I’ve had the opportunity to use Social Skill Builder’s App! Both the Full and Lite versions are compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad (iOS 4.3 or later). I had previously used the Lite version but was provided the Full version for the purpose of this.
According to Social Skill Builder, this app was designed by SLPs. It utilizes real life video interactions to promote social learning for kids with Autism spectrum disorders and other learning or language deficits. The App is based on Social Skill Builder’s award-winning educational software series that teach social skills in pre-school to middle and high school settings, as well as the community. The Social Skill Builder App is $12.99 and the Social Skill Builder Lite is $2.99 plus additional modules available for purchase at $1.99 each.
The Full App features over 100 videos for the student to view and react to by answering multiple choice questions. Video scenarios are real interactions in preschool, elementary, middle and high school and community settings. Within these settings, children and young adults demonstrate common social interactions with their peers and other adults. The included modules are:
- 2 Modules in the title Preschool Playtime (Preschool and Playground)
- 4 Modules in the title My School Day (Laughing, Table Talk, Classroom, Jungle Gym)
- 2 Modules in the title My Community (Friend’s House, Restaurant)
- 2 Modules in the title School Rules! (Hanging Out, Classroom Assignments)
