Like training wheels teaches a child to to ride a bike, ASD TOOLS helps your child stay calm, learn new skills and transition smoothly from one activity to the next, until they can do these things without support.

ASD TOOLS is a framework of proven strategies which will grow with your child for many years and the structure gives you the tools to help, guide and support them at the level they need.

The app works for all developmental delays and levels and it's even great for neurotypical kids too.

ASD TOOLS has been nominated as the go-to support app for Autistic students in numerous schools in Australia, USA and UK. The beauty of the app is that it isn't just for ASD but is also extremely helpful for students with ADHD, Downs Syndrome and other developmental delays.

BCBA, OT, SLP and Early Intervention Therapists are using ASD TOOLS because it breaks down anything into easy to achieve steps which a child can follow and learn from using proven strategies they work with everyday.

Parents love us because the app helps them capture their child's day. It's editable and provides consistent structure and supports that all kids on the spectrum need to feel calm and in control.

Triumph over transitions

Really find ASD TOOLS such a useful and easy app to use.

Super easy to get up and running straight way which is so important when you work with children with Special Needs and Autism like we do.

The real strength of the app is that each of its tools is designed to integrate and work with each other. We set up a Visual Schedule, when we hit a problem we move across to First Then with its timer, reward the child when they have completed the First Then and then continue on with their Visual Schedule.

Kids get a real kick out of ticking the images off their Visual Schedule and the rewards tool is great at keeping them on task and motivated.

If you’re looking for an app to triumph over transitions (First Then), create choice boards or Visual Schedules (Steps tool) bookend an activity or time a transition (timer) this may be a worthwhile investment for you too.

Fantastic update

We have used ASD TOOLS for several years now because it’s uncomplicated to use and it’s works so well with all of the kids. Loving all of the new upgrades and expanded features especially the new and improved timers and expanded rewards charts. Importing photos is easy just wish I could edit the names like the last version. Either way it’s a winner for therapy and home

Easy to use and ready straight out of the box

Straightforward and easy to use during a meltdown. Helps us to avoid stressful situations and structure her day.
Lots of images and sounds. Good alarm sounds (gentle) to reduce panic when it goes off.
I use the if then and timers every to day help me manage my daughter before, during and after school.
Thoroughly recommended.
