MITA develops your child’s imagination and language functions. The visual exercises follow a systematic approach for developing your child's ability to notice multiple features of an object. MITA starts with simple exercises that teach your child to attend to only one feature, such as size or color. Over time, the exercises get more difficult and require your child to attend to two features simultaneously, such as both color and size. MITA then moves on to puzzles that require attending to three features, such as color, size and shape, and then eventually to puzzles that involve attending to an ever-increasing number of characteristics.
The verbal exercises use higher forms of language, such as adjectives, prepositions, and syntax.

MITA is developed by Dr. A. Vyshedskiy, a neuroscientist from Boston University; R. Dunn, a Harvard-educated early-child-development specialist; MIT-educated, J. Elgart and a group of award-winning artists and developers working alongside experienced therapists.

Most MITA features are completely free and the free MITA version provides access to years of language therapy. Some additional features are available as a MITA Premium subscription for $69.99/year. Your subscription pays for the development of new language exercises that are added each month.

Awesome but needs an update for sure

This app has helped me significantly as a PCA to my nephew. He has definitely adapted well to this and I can see progress in his attention to detail. HOWEVER, without fail. This app crashes every time I use it. Multiple times!!! It's very frustrating because I have to stay nearby to reboot it when it freezes or else my nephew gets so upset! This happens especially when he has play time and colors. This is very frustrating because that's his favorite part yet it ALWAYS freezes on him. The content is great but the crashing is too much. I'm waiting for an update on this because I do really enjoy it.

Please upgrade to 3.4
The new version solves the problem in coloring PlayTime.



my daughter has a major speech mixed receptive and expressive, and I have seen such an improvement in her language and understanding in less then a months time we saw a significant advance with just the free version, I’m absolutely sold and will be purchasing the yearly subscription. Worth every penny. And she loves how it’s celebrated all her correct answers!! Loving this highly recommended

Please fix the coloring pages

My son loves this app but when he finishes a level and gets to play a "game," he enjoys coloring. The coloring pages are not user friendly for small children. Also no matter what there are always spots that he cannot color. I have tried to help him and I cannot get those spots colored either. To an autistic child this is more than frustrating. It upsets him so much that unfortunately I need to delete this app. I hope with future updates I will be able to re-download after this bug is fixed with the coloring pages. Thank you for your consideration.

We have increased drawing size and made it easier to color.
If your son has problems with any particular drawing, please let us know via email ( and we will try to change it. Thank you!
