Pointing is an app designed to help your child improve their ability to pay attention to where (and what) people are pointing to.
Your child will be asked to select the object that the character is pointing or looking at. As the levels progress, more objects will appear on the screen.
It is suitable for play by children with an ability level equivalent to 18 months to 6 years, and doesn’t require any language or reading.
This app has been designed by researchers at Edinburgh University based on existing cutting edge autism research.
We believe that this app will provide a fun and interactive way for children with autism to practice noticing where people are pointing and looking at. By doing so, there is the potential increase the speed at which they associate spoken words with objects.
