Technology has expanded so much and is such a huge part of our every day lives, but it can sometimes be hard to navigate. If you're looking for safe, helpful apps to help your children work on social skills, one of our SLPs has some suggestions for you!
Conversation Builder This app provides visual pictures and associated “conversations”. It allows the student to pick (from a field of choices) the best/most appropriate comment/question, record their response and then play the entire conversation back. Great for targeting turn-taking and topic maintenance in conversations.
Conversation Builder Teen (19.99) Same as above except for scenarios appropriate for teens.
Model Me Going Places 2 (FREE) provides 6 situations (i.e. haircut, mall, doctor, playground, grocery store, and restaurant) and then provides a social story to navigate those situations.
