See what others are saying about our Functional Skills System apps:
“Wonderful content. Direct and to the point. Videos are great. I love how the material is presented…. Definitely a must have for anyone who could use help with social skills and is a visual learner.”
“I LOVE this app!!!!! This is EXACTLY the sort of thing I’ve been looking for and I’m so excited that I found it. Things that seem easy to many people – joining others in a group, for instance – can be overwhelming for a child on the autism spectrum. I have tried to help my son with his social skills but it has been difficult. This app is just what he needs.”
“I got this app for my son, who has Asperger Syndrome. It is a great way for him to learn what certain signs and words mean. The definitions are basic and easy to understand.”
“My daughter spends 20 minutes a day picking through the list of videos as a vocabulary builder and sight word training. I love that you display the words in large bold print, say it clearly, play the video and then show the word again at the end. Using real people instead of cartoons makes all the difference.”
