All tasks can and should be bolstered by a timer and rewards section until your child no longer needs them to complete a task.

Your child will learn to achieve their goals by finishing tasks, learning that anything is achievable when it's broken down into small achievable steps. This bolsters their confidence and resolve to try again next time with even more success.

Breaking a task into smaller achievable steps is easy with ASD Tools, just use the camera to add the images to your library then use them straight away. Don't forget to reward them for a job well done and they will keep coming back for more.

ASD Tools has a comprehensive image library for you to use but you can easily swap the illustrations with your own photos. Any item can have it's category, name and imaged changed or deleted if you wish.

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.

Good but need audio recording

Would love to have the option of recording names for each picture . Otherwise it is an awesome app because the images are larger than some of the other picture schedule app that I had used.

User friendly, effective app

Update #2: After deleting and re-installing the app, it works again. However, there was no way to recover all of the pictures I had taken (which was a lot). Still a fantastic app and highly recommended.

Update #1: Needs to be updated to run on the new IOS software. I try to change the picture and it crashes every time.

Original Post: I am an OT and have been looking for a first/then and visual schedule app. This app has both and more. Very user friendly and such a great price (even with the optional additional features). I have recommended this to all of my co-workers and multiple families. Have heard nothing but positive reports when I asked them about their experience. Highly recommended!

Nice & Easy

This app is easy to use. It comes with a library of pics and let's you add pictures from your photo library. It is very easy to set up. It has first and then or Steps that you can put as many steps as you'd like.
