Visual Cue - A whole new approach using previously popular visual tools with data driven progress reports.
From now on, you will have more insight and feeling of progress just by more using Visual Cue app.
This is the most advanced and a brand new way to give a visual cue for communication with non-verbal children and/or visual thinkers!!!
Data driven evidence based intervention
We think the most important aspect about intervention of autism and any spectrum in autism is progress and how to measure the progress. So, we introduce a whole new Visual Cue for data driven and evidence based intervention. It still has its all previous great features with added new feature for data collection
Who is a visual thinker?
Research by Child Development Theorist suggests that less than 30% of the population strongly uses visual/spatial thinking, another 45% uses both visual/spatial thinking and thinking in the form of words, and 25% thinks exclusively in words. - Wikipedia
Why is it sometimes so hard to get kids to follow a verbal direction?
It might be because they are visual thinkers. They can get more information through a picture than a few words.
So, we are proudly providing five useful tools for them to communicate through pictures, it is a combination of multiple tools as follows and keep growing:
• Visual Scheduler: a guide map for visual thinkers
Not enough with a couple of pictures? You can make a story line of what to do or what’s going on in the next couple of hours or even for days. Create a series of activities for your kids to make it clear what to expect next in a structured way.
• Working For:
It is a simple two-part board that communicates to children what they are doing now and what they will be doing next. The board is effective in letting children know what to expect without overwhelming them with a number of activities.
• Touch Choice:
You can make more than 4 items on choice board featured by smooth arrangement with numbers for counting item. For example, you can create a glossary shopping list with visible item with number to purchase, working activity with time, and so on.
• First ~ Then: simple cause and result
Let them know what’s going to happen after they accomplish one thing using a sequential picture though “First ~ Then.” You can show the first image as a condition to have the second one. For example, show picture of wash hands at first then show their favorite snack. It makes them understand clearly what they need to do for the compensation as a contingency.
• Tokens: It's a token rewarding system merged previous two features
called Count Up and Down.
• Visual Timer: Progressive image with timer with better look and performance.

Ratings and Reviews
I love the options!
Update: The developer did add the improvements I was hoping for- I use this app frequently! The visual timer is very nifty- as time passes, more of the picture emerges, until the timer has ended- upon which the entire image shows up. The added "count up" feature means I use this as a token board often!
Oh and MsNonnymouz, you should be able to email yourself the pics you want to use, then download them to your device. Or if you can't do that, you can just take a screenshot of a picture that you found on the internet, by holding the top button and the home button on your iPod touch.
Thank you for giving my kids more options! I really like having many different strategies to use with my students and my own son on the spectrum, and Visual Cues definitely provides those different approaches. Adding photos is pretty quick and I caught on quickly how to do this and to navigate. The count down feature is unique, although it'd be a wonderful option to also include the well-known token board approach, by allowing tapping UP to a certain number.
I've tried many AAC apps, and most focus on just one or two approaches; this app definitely comes closest to rolling the features of all these apps into one very useful, reasonably priced app.
Also, the developer is very responsive, There may be a timer feature in the works, and possibly other improvements, which would really make this app stand out even further. I look forward to watching this app grow!
This app is fantastic. I used it all day, everyday in my classroom for months, until my students could all follow auditory cues (or else knew the routine). Adding in pictures of their actual environment really sees to help activate their awareness and understanding.
I have had a few problems with the app crashing, but less as time goes by, as each update improves the program.
I highly recommend it to all my colleagues.
The lite version doesn't include any pictures. Since I have a iTouch 3G, I can't take pictures with the device. This means that, while the app might be wonderful, I can't find out because I can't make anything. Since your full version is 9.99, the same as a similar app that has reviews, i will purchase that one!
