Technology in Education is a group of parents of special needs kids who look for the best special needs apps on iTunes. They put a lot of effort into categorizing apps and putting together a detailed analysis of how a particular app can help a child. They recently reviewed Mobile Education Store’s ConversationBuilder social skills app. They write:
This application is done beautifully with enough scenarios that student normally encounters. Students are interacting with other person (even though it is pre-recorded). This will eliminate the anxiety students will normally face during the peer-peer interaction. Of course this can’t go on forever. They need to graduate from this to real world conversation during speech or other adult supervised situation. There are other package options you can buy to add more scenarios.
The review is fairly short, but has a lot of good information. It is worth looking at. Tap on the icon below to find out more about ConversationBuilder and purchase it from iTunes.
