The “Say It... Or Not?” app helps children with autism understand and practice what to say… and what not to say… in real-life social situations. Filtering thoughts can be a challenge for children with autism or ADHD. This app helps children find appropriate words for over one hundred common social situations. Kids also learn to think about how their words make other people feel.

The “Say It… Or Not?” app gives your child the social filtering skills they need to better manage social situations at home, school and in the community.

What parents say about our awesome apps:
*** 5 stars! Brilliant! An app that understands how kids actually learn. Thank you.
*** 5 stars! Your social skill apps are excellent!

“Say It… Or Not?” provides:

- More than 100 situations frequently faced in a student’s everyday life, from annoying siblings to forgotten homework to unwanted birthday gifts.

- Each situation can play out in four different ways. Students practice identifying how specific responses would make their friend feel and whether it is okay to say. For each situation where they might want to say something negative, students identify what is okay to say in that situation.

- Students progress to the next level only when mastery of the current skill is demonstrated.

- 'At a glance' reporting shows you instantly how your learner is progressing.

- The fun Reward Center motivates even hesitant learners.

Most exciting, this app offers independent AND therapist mode. In independent mode, answers are displayed and the learner taps the correct answer.

In therapist mode, no answers are displayed. For each question, the student answers orally and the therapist taps whether the learner's oral answer was correct or incorrect. Both modes earn coins for the Reward Center.

Our apps are designed for and tested by typical and special needs children. Testers include children with Autism and other special needs. Our apps work for them! Our apps are also suitable for adults dealing with aphasia or learning English as a Second Language.

To evaluate the app, download the free version, which has one free book. Additional levels and additional players can be accessed with in-app purchases. (All levels can be purchased for $2.99 -- price may change.)

If you prefer no in-app purchases, download the School Edition (SE) version of this app, which includes all levels and up to 10 players.

Promotes lying

The app is a great idea but several of it’s “good responses” are disingenuous and encourage lying to please people. You don’t have to lie to thank someone for a gift you didn’t like. You don’t have to lie to be thankful for someone’s thoughtfulness even if their treat/gift isn’t to you tastes.

Kids with autism are at a greater risk of being taken advantage of because they take longer to speak up. Also I find some of the reactions too extreme like “mad” when the proper response would be “sad” or “disappointed”.

I give two stars for the idea and setup but with all the “white LIES” I can’t give more than that. A lie is a lie.

Say it or not!

I’m a Speech/Language Pathologist that is currently service pediatric patients through Home Health. I have many Happy Frog apps and have never been disappointed. This app presents situations and responses and the patient has to judge if the response should be said or kept to your self. The children with Autism that I serve have trouble with this skill. There is limited materials that focus on this area. I highly recommend it.

This app is so well thought. If you have a kid in family who needs support. It's amazing how technology can augment your approach with your kid!
