Interactive video exercises to build social confidence for persons with ASD.
Practice conversations before they happen!

Social Niceties (SoNi) has been designed to model frequent social interactions and practice conversations before they happen in real life. The app consists of hundreds of videos where actors appear on a screen to initiate most frequent social situations. The learner is expected to answer and the teacher, parent, or a speech pathologist can model appropriate response. SoNi application takes a role of the other person in the conversation so the teacher can fully concentrate on modeling the response. This approach minimizes the danger of accidentally learning echolalic responses and confusion of which part of the dialogue to repeat and which part of dialogue to respond to.

Teacher has a full control over the videos and reinforcers using Bluetooth keyboard connected to the device. If you prefer not to use a keyboard, swipe right to reveal navigation buttons.


Backspace or ‘H’: go back to Home screen
Spacebar: reinforcer and the next video
'N' or Right arrow: Next video
'R' or Down arrow: Replay the video
'E' or Up arrow: play the reinforcer (i.e. play the Effect)

It is best to control the lessons from a Bluetooth keyboard to give the student some privacy in his/her interaction with an actor. If you don't have a keyboard, swipe right in the video screen to reveal the navigation buttons.


Start a video and let the student respond. Be patient. The student may need time to contemplate. If you are satisfied with his/her response to the actor, click the 'Spacebar' or the 'Reward & Next' button. If you would prefer to improve the student's response, provide your feedback and click the 'R' key or the 'Repeat' button to replay the video.
