AutisMate LITE the Communication and Life Skills App For Adults and Children with Autism

AutisMate LITE the Communication and Life Skills App  For Adults and Children with Autism | Student Support | Scoop.it

AutisMate’s Smart Scenes™ technology combines a traditional grid-display sentence builder with customizable visual scenes, which incorporate visual stories, visual schedules and video modeling into a single learning app.  AutisMate’s personalization allows users to employ images and videos from an environment the individual with autism is familiar, including their home, school or work.

This is one of the most comprehensive apps I have ever used for students/ individuals with autism or any individual needing AAC or  life skills features that are built right into the app! Visual schedules and timers, customizable interactive scenes that are literally the rooms/ places that the student/ individual will be in daily, video modeling and sequencing, and communication; it's absolutely phenomenal! The Lite version is FREE and starts with an excellent step by step tutorial and allows you to experience much of what the app has to offer before deciding to purchase the full version. Well worth the price for students/ individuals who will benefit as it replaces so many other apps and having to use multiple apps.

I'm going to look into this. I need a customizable app for higher level students.
