The visual supports you can create and use with First Then Visual Schedule (FTVS) HD have proven to be especially beneficial for the following populations:

Typically developing children
Those learning English as a second language
People with developmental disabilities like Autism and Down Syndrome
Individuals with learning disabilities like dyslexia
People affected by anxiety or attention deficits
Anyone with language, hearing or auditory processing deficits
Individuals affected by aphasia after a stroke
And many more...

So, as a parent, teacher, therapist or adult who could benefit from visual supports you want to try them but may be frustrated by how many different apps you seem to need in order to do so?

FTVS HD lets you easily and quickly create and use ALL these visual supports in just one app:

First Then boards
Visual schedules
Task analyses
Social stories
Choice boards
Video models

FTVS HD is designed to be used anywhere and everywhere with everything you need easily accessible from within the app:

It's universal so it will work on any iDevice

FTVS HD gives you FIVE different options for adding images: take a picture using your device's camera or grab one from the camera roll, use the Internet search feature to look for an image, use one of the stock images in the app or access one of 10,000 Smarty Ears symbols. All the stock images and Smarty Ears symbols are searchable by name.

Set a timer for either an entire schedule or for individual steps within it.

Attach a choice board or video to any step.

There are FIVE different viewing options: Look at one single image at a time (great for the visually impaired), view two images in a First Then board format, scroll through a checklist, drag and drop an image to another column once a step is complete or drag and drop an image from a strip and put it in an envelope.

FTVS HD makes it easy to create, customize and share schedules.

You can copy the templates that come with the app or create your own from scratch.

Easily edit, move, delete or hide steps within schedules.

You can print your schedules and share them with other users via email. Due to size constraints you can currently only email one choice board and cannot email videos.

Great app don’t like the changes in the Nd version

I had the oriofonal first then and it was amazing I could swipe sidways and I had larger images I really dislike that I can’t have those anymore, I really hope they bring those back not having those is a major down side to this purchase and it’s going to be hard to adapt to this version but the original just isn’t around anymore .

I literally bought an iPad for this app

I had been debating a Goally are after seeing them on Facebook for weeks, and a friend suggested this app and an iPad to me instead as a more cost effective and way more fun way to do the same thing and WOW was she right. I love everything (well almost) about this app. It's incredibly intuitive, I love the integration with Google Images so I'm not stuck using childish Images (I'm an autistic adult, so using baby pictures did not appeal to me), etc. A few minor tweaks and suggestions, if I may?

I want to switch to landscape mode. Most cases stand up in landscape mode. This is a minor annoyance, but an annoyance nonetheless.

When I print, I want the option of putting the pictures inside the box with the words. Again, not a deal breaker, but would be super nice.

And last, but most importantly to me, can you make a way to hyper link the routines? Like, if you have a routine that says "morning routine" that includes 4 steps and one is "brush teeth" you should be able to click on "brush teeth" to take you to the embedded "brush teeth" routine. And when done with that routine, it takes you back to the morning routine, not the front page. Please?
