A platform for parents, health care workers and schools to build bespoke mobile apps to further enable independence in the lives of individuals with special educational needs and disabilities. Bespoke mobile apps on our platform are built and managed by you, giving you the ability to use personal content and media using as much or as little information as required on a private app specific to an individual. Build social stories, first and next instructions, and visual timetables. Provide the user with information relating to maps, transport links, weather, news and keep a log of the users feelings all in one location on their mobile phone or tablet device. Give the user support to navigate through day to day activities independently and provide information about new events in the user’s life to help them prepare for changes to routine.
The aim of our example app on the app store is not only to highlight the features available on a bespoke app, but also to provide generic support that can be used by individuals with SEND needs.
Examples of step by step social story instructions included on this app are:
- Getting Dressed
- Making Toast
- Making a Cup of Tea
- Making a Cup of Hot Chocolate
- Washing your Hands
- Washing the Dishes
