The image library also has categories for grouping similar images together PLUS a search function to help you locate the image you need quickly.

After many requests to expand the visual schedule and to add a save function for 123 Steps and First Then sections we have expanded 123 Steps from 3 steps to unlimited steps as an optional in app purchase and another allowing you to save any and all routines/schedules/first then/diaries you create. From the feedback we've received, these two optional in app purchases are worth their weight in gold for the savings they have given our users in cost savings of size of purchasing other apps, time spent creating routines, time and frustration saved in preparing schedules/diaries/task breakdowns/routines ahead of time.

Such a useful app

I love this app so much. I've had it for a couple years to help my daughter who has autism. I must say that the updates along the way have been great. The only thing I wish this app had was a choice board! I no longer have to take bulky manipulatives with me when we are out - I am able to take her iPad and access this app but when it comes to a choice board I still have to take tangible manipulatives with us. Then this would be a 5 star app for me :-) well done for making a great app!

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.

A great app and easy to navigate, however I was disappointed when I went to use the app on another of my devices and the routines weren’t there. There should be a way to download or export routines and save them without losing them with updates etc. I also would like if you could print the routines or at least save as PDF or export them to print. If this functionality was available I would give five stars.
