Designed specifically for beginning AAC learners and/or those that function at very 'early' levels, teaches early choice-making based on learner interests.
Scan To Pictures (STP, for switch(es)) and Point To Pictures (PTP) are communication (AAC) *training* programs, to help those that might eventually use the iPad to communicate via pictures and/or text. Using a library animations and pictures of real-world consequences, the learner learns to pair their switch action with receiving the actual item (food, toy, activity, person, song, etc.). STP *wants* you to add your *own* pictures that are personally motivating to *your* learner, because many times, only a few specific things really 'get through' to a learner.
STP can be operated via your touchscreen, but it is really meant to be controlled by the learner's switch(es). RJ Cooper's Bluetooth (BT) Switch Interface, or BT Super-Switch can be used. Step-Scan, Auditory Scan, and our very unique Fullscreen Scan are supported.
Before you go to a 'real' communication program, which usually has no 'fun' content, and no 'hand-holding', you will find STP to be a necessary step from cause/effect to more advanced communication apps.
Several other tasks are necessary for basic understanding and learning and are offered as separate apps:
Gold (includes *all* of the above)
Updated for iOS 14 and new cert format.
Updated Otto for workaround of pic-import of old library deprecation.
Ratings and Reviews
Long time fan of this program.
So happy to see this in iTunes and in a scannable version. It's been magic for one of my students. Thank you RJ!
