Inference Pics is a professional speech therapy app that targets the ability to make inferences. This FREE trial version gives you a small sample of the content you’ll get in the FULL version of Inference Pics so you can see how it works and try it out.
Inference Pics is designed to nurture the ability of children and young adults to make social inferences. Making social inferences means observing a situation and using social or contextual clues with background knowledge to understand what has happened or what is happening. It also includes understanding how people may be feeling and what they may be thinking or saying.
We make social inferences all the time but we take our ability to do so for granted. It is in fact quite a complex skill. Children with language delay, children with autism and adults with autism or brain injury often need support to learn how to read social situations and decipher the clues.
Inference Pics is intended for use with a parent or Speech Language Pathologist and a child or adult user. It is designed to be interactive. The app is divided into 7 sets of pictures.
Activity 1: What has happened?
Activity 2: Jobs
Activity 3: Places
Activity 4: Seasons
Activity 5: Feelings
Activity 6: Conversations
Activity 7: Thoughts
Each activity has two questions. The first question asks the user to make an inference e.g. What has happened? How are they feeling? etc. The second question in each activity is “How can you tell?”. Encourage the user to find all the clues and provide verbal explanations when needed.
