Brainy Monsters Maths Trainer
Price – $0.99

Brainy Monsters brings the fun back to maths with a monster-themed quiz. Choose from addition, subtraction, multiplication and division for a set of timed challenges. Difficulty ranges from easy (Level 1, aimed at early primary) to challenging (Level 5, aimed at later year primary).

Kids love playing this game – the monsters add a sense of fun while the record keeping helps players keep track of their best times.

I developed this app with my 6 and 9 year old children (who designed all of the monsters in the game), and we’ve had heaps of fun getting the gameplay right, as well as making sure that the game sets the right level of challenge for a broad range of ages. It’s also a huge buzz for the kids to see their artwork running on a phone/tablet, and it’s inspired hundreds of monstrous designs (plenty more for future games to come…) – we hope you love the game!!!


Aardwearing Software

AaSsessMyVS
Price – $0.99

The purpose of aaSsessMyVS is to allow you to perform a brief test to see if coloured overlays will help improve your reading experience. If so, the sister app aaLuminate(also available in App Store) will help you. In this case, you should also consider arranging a formal test to determine whether tinted glasses/physical coloured overlays would be beneficial.

Sufferers from Meares-Irlen syndrome or Scotopic Sensitivity Syndrome can often be dazzled by bright white backgrounds to text.

Commonly experienced symptoms when trying to read include…
-Text is blurry,
-Text moves around,
-Words spaced too close together/too far apart,
-Worm, river or waterfall type patterns appear on page
-Pain, nausea or dizziness.

However it’s quite possible for a sufferer to be unaware that there is an issue affecting their ability to read .

Recent studies indicate that up to 5% of the population find their reading speed increases by more than 25% when coloured overlays are used to change the look of the page.
Some dyslexics and migraine sufferers are among those that can benefit from employing such overlays

aaSsessMyVS can be used to test yourself and your family.
The test takes only a minute or two per person – it follows a similar pattern to traditional assessments using physical coloured overlays placed over a piece of text and compared.
aaSsessMyVS is a useful tool for education professionals to determine quickly whether a formal test for Scotopic Sensitivity Syndrome would be appropriate for any of their students. With the education market in mind, it includes the ability to email the result of the test to an email address of your choosing, including the test subject name and an additional note.
aaSsessMyVS can only be used landscape orientation. Unlike its sister app aaLuminate, aaSsessMyVS needs no camera and so can be used on a wider range of devices.

♥ 40 tales with charming illustrations with a soft color palette that brings the characters to life while evoking a child’s warm, imaginary view of the world and home.

And we are all united with a beautiful idea – to help parents start important dialogues with their children, to share values and experience.

For centuries tales like these allow kids to understand important values in life via engaging and entertaining form. Our tales were written these days, but they have that old-fashioned charming style of storytelling that is so rare nowadays.

In our tales you will find wonderful characters: animals and butterflies, kind magicians and robots, dewy drop and music, beautiful princesses and kings, cars and kids. And what is very important these tales are about friendship and kindness, love and care, mutual assistance and the never-ending miracles that DO exist in the world around us.

Intuitive configuration options and fast card creation allow for virtually anyone to quickly update and tune So Much 2 Say to best fit the needs of the Learner in multiple settings.

New card/category creation in seconds. Have an iPad2? Use the built-in cameras to make cards of new objects on the spot. Or choose from any picture in your own photo library or one of our included images.

Features:
– Simple design makes it easy to meet the specific needs of each individual
– Flexible layout options – card or category-based navigation and 1 to 6 objects per page
– Simple and fast card creation – all editing options are built-in. No dependence on other servers or websites
– Use the iPad2’s built-in camera to create cards instantly
– or choose from built-in images or your own photo library
– Card filtering – quickly search the app card library for the cards you want to make visible
– Optional passcode protected “edit” mode
– Record your own natural, familiar voice

Benefits:
– Can be used by individuals of all ages with or without prior experience with AAC systems or devices
– Can be used in conjunction with other AAC systems
– Encourages a communication exchange between the Learner and a Communicative Partner
– Spend less time configuring – more time for communicating

Great for individuals with
– Cognitive and language impairment
– Non-verbal language disorders
– Autism
– Apraxia
– Dysarthia
– Parkinson’s
– ALS
– Aphasia
– Stroke complications
– Traumatic Brain Injury

Many AAC apps target higher functioning learners, and, to their credit, serve that population very well. However, there is a significant hole in the AAC app landscape for individuals with significant intellectual disabilities. We designed So Much 2 Say from the ground up with the intention to fill that hole. There is no longer a need to spend hundreds of dollars on an app filled with features that are unsuitable to the individual.

So Much 2 Say was developed with two distinct classes of users in mind: the Learner and the Administrator. The Administrator is one of several people that work with the Learner (parents, therapists, teachers, school & hospital staff, etc.) who make changes to the app’s configuration as the Learner progresses. We believe that both classes of users’ needs must be catered to in order to realize the full potential of the learning process.

Thus, for the Learner, we’ve simplified the interface to the bare necessities: the cards themselves. In it’s simplest form, you have a single card. Touch the card, and you hear a familiar voice, verbalizing what was tapped. As the Learner progresses, more cards can be made visible. Once multiple pages of cards are being routinely accessed, the concept of categories can be introduced, and the Learner can navigate in a more hierarchical fashion.

Now what about the other class of user – the Administrator? This encompasses a wide range of individuals with varying skill levels and time constraints who not only facilitate and participate in the communication exchange, but also need to be able to make changes to the app to support this process. Well, we’ve spent just as much effort trying to make the app as intuitive for them as it is for the Learner. Much care has been taken to streamline every aspect of the configuration process.

We thank you for your interest in So Much 2 Say. Please visit our website for more detailed information including video tutorials, FAQs, and suggested procedures and use cases as we continuously update and share our own experiences as well as input from other families and professionals.

What’s new

Feature enhancements:
– improved edit menu responsiveness in card library
– increased card size for 1, 2, and 4 cards per page on Homepage
– changed blank card to “Insert Category” when in Category mode
– partial transparency when touching a card in Homepage or Edit Mode
– added version info in Settings app

Sōsh™ is a mobile app designed to help ‘tweens, teens and young adults improve social skills. It is especially designed to be used by individuals with Asperger’s Syndrome.

DISCOUNT FOR EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS NOW AVAILABLE.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT Sōsh™:

•“This is a marvelous app. I haven’t seen anything like it.”
•“I have never come across something so great for people with Asperger’s.”
•“It is one sweet app, is strength-based and best in breed; an app that is both dignified, and appeals to kids’ strengths while building social skills at the same time. Finally, something my tween will want!”
•“Sōsh™ gives you virtually every tool you could possibly have in one electronic toolbox. It’s the Swiss Army knife of apps!”
•“This app is the most comprehensive electronic and portable toolbox for social skills development!”

Sōsh™ focuses on five essential abilities for social skills development: Relate, Relax, Reason, Regulate, and Recognize. These “5R’s” serve as a road map for individuals who want to be social, but may have faced obstacles in the past, and also serve as a guide for parents, teachers, and therapists hoping to encourage and assist individuals with their social goals.

Sōsh™ CONTAINS OVER 60 WELL-DESIGNED SCREENS presenting exercises, strategies, and practical information to work through social situations in a step-by-step manner. And, most importantly, the app encourages you to work on these skills during everyday interactions, when learning is most likely to occur.

Sōsh™ offers a journal, a goals area, a to-do list, and a rating scale to rate anything from your school day to an interaction with a peer. You also get a behavior tracking area, a voice meter, and an interest log. Did we mention you can archive all of this data to review later or share with others via email?

Maybe you want to email someone your goals for the day. Sōsh™ does that. Maybe you want a timer to help you deal with an upcoming transition. Sōsh™ does that too. In fact, it does SO many things you need to use it to believe it. It even provides a visual of a balloon pumping up for when you want to express your level of stress.

Another exciting feature is the Shredder. It’s both visual and audible, and Autism Epicenter referred to it as “brilliant!” Simply type your trouble in the dialog box and drag it into the shredder to see it ripped to shreds! The Facial Expressions gallery is a great place within the app to brush up on recognizing emotions. And, of course, it’s visual too. Talking too loudly? Try the Voice Meter and learn to lower your speech volume.

Developed by two psychologists, the contents of the Sōsh™ app are based on effective strategies used over the course of a decade of work with children, adolescents, and young adults working to improve social skills.

SOME ADDITIONAL FEATURES:
* Get Out and Explore Companion
* Feelings Identifier and Perspective Meter
* Transition Timer

Touch & Discover: Animals
Price $1.99

Touch & Discover: Animals is a fun and educational interactive game to help toddlers learn animal names and sounds.

The game is perfect for ages 0 to 4 as they discover the world around them. The game is nice and simple: 4 animal photos are displayed and your child touches the animal that the voiceover asks for. In addition, the animal’s name is also presented on the screen. When the correct animal is touched, the animal’s sound is heard and the child is encouraged to make that sound as well. If the animal’s name is touched, the app spells out the name letter-by-letter.

57 beautiful animal photos are included, along with high quality animal sounds, including:

★ Tiger
★ Lion
★ Panda
★ Kangaroo
★ Elephant
★ Dolphin
★ Monkey
★ Owl
★ Pig
★ Cow
★ Wolf

The game encourages your child’s natural curiosity and enjoyment of learning. Through multi-sensory learning, your child is able to match an animal’s spoken name, written name, photo and sound. This process helps to develop their listening, reading, spelling and speaking skills.

You’ll experience lots of giggles as your child and you start making funny animal sounds. Best of all your child will not even know they’re learning – they’ll be having too much fun! And you can take this game wherever you are – in the car, shops and at home.

We’re confident you’ll love Touch & Discover. Our support team is dedicated to ensure you and your child enjoy our apps. You can submit a support ticket at any time via our website and we will respond promptly.

Apraxia Picture Sound Cards
Price $119.00 (from $179)

Welcome to the Apraxia Picture Sound Cards app (parent version)! This app was created for individuals with childhood apraxia of speech (CAS) and severe phonological disorders. It is the very first app specifically created for the unique needs of the child with CAS. Pediatric Speech-Language Pathologist and apraxia specialist Lynn Carahaly, M.A., CCC-SLP, developed the Apraxia Picture Sound Cards app. Children with Down syndrome, autism, cerebral palsy, etc., that may also have a motor speech disorders can benefit from this app.

This app includes over 775 colorful and engaging picture cards, 45 phonogram cards & 10 number cards, and the Speech-EZ® Hand Cues in video format. This app allows you the ability to customize your therapy session by creating specific stimulus sets based on the child’s performance and ability level. Children with CAS must undergo a different treatment method than a child with an articulation disorder. Therefore, an articulation approach is not recommended for a child with CAS. Unlike traditional “articulation” therapy cards, the Apraxia Picture Sound Cards app provides you with the necessary flexibility to select specific sound sequences to target in a given session such as CVC (consonant_vowel_consonant) words (i.e. “bed”), CVCV words (i.e. “baby”), compound words (i.e. “cupcake”), one syllable words with blends (i.e. “cloud”), two syllable words (i.e. “apple”), three syllable words (i.e. “banana”), and four syllable words (i.e. “helicopter”). You may also select specific words to practice various movement sequences by place of articulation: bilabial-to-bilabial, alveolar-to-velar, etc. Essentially, you are in more control when selecting appropriate targeted speech motor plans.

The Apraxia Picture Sound Cards app provides you with convenience, organization, and session-by-session data collection for a single user. You are able to track and store your child’s session-by-session data allowing you to easily see your child’s measurable progress. Session data can be stored and easily retrieved. This parent version allows you to store data and track progress for a single user.

The Apraxia Picture Sound Cards app is a therapy tool for The Speech-EZ® Apraxia Program. It should be understood that the Apraxia Picture Sound Cards app is not The Speech-EZ® Apraxia Program, nor is it a substitute for speech therapy with a certified Speech-Language Pathologist.

Features:

•Includes over 775 colorful and engaging picture cards, 45 phonogram cards & 10 number cards, and the Speech-EZ® Hand Cues in video format
•IEP goal bank specific to the child with CAS
•Ability to select stimulus sets based on the individual’s verbal motor planning abilities: CV and VC words, CVC words, CVCV words, compound words, one syllable words with blends, two syllable words, three syllable words, and four syllable words
•Ability to select specific words to practice movement sequences by place of articulation: bilabial-to-bilabial, alveolar-to-velar, etc.
•Flexibility to customize your stimulus sets
•Tap-to-play audio
•Tap-to-flip card to read word

*Record your own voice to the images
*Create as many schedules as you need
*Change the order of a schedule, anytime!

Check out our new app: SCENE SPEAK for the iPad!

This app. was designed for the iTouch/iPhone but WILL work on the iPad providing you have the iOS 4.2 update.

Visual schedules provide positive behavior support through the use of images that show daily events(i.e. morning routine or therapy schedule) or steps needed to complete a specific activity, (i.e. using the restroom).

First-Then application is unique in that it is completely customizable.

User can *record their own voice*, *add their own images* from their computer, internet image importer or iPhone/ iTouch camera, or simply use images from the application’s stock library to create a schedule. Flexibility of obtaining images allows for schedules to be created “on-the-go” to help transition through unexpected changes in a routine.
Within a saved schedule, as many images as needed can be used to create the steps needed to complete a task. There is also the option of choosing different formats for use in each of the schedules. Format options can be changed at a moments notice depending upon the preference of the user:

*THREE DIFFERENT FORMATS:*

*FULL SCREEN*- In this format a larger image appears on the screen. User accesses next image on schedule by simply swiping screen to the left.

*FIRST-THEN SCREEN*- This format shows two images side by side with an arrow between images to guide the sequence of the activity. This is often a visual that is given to portray conditional statements. For example, ”First bathroom, then computer”. This helps let the user know what is coming up next. Split screen can be read left to right with captions underneath each image, or top to bottom of screen with schedule scrolling down to see next image in the schedule.

*LIST SCREEN*- This screen allows images to be listed in a list format where four images are placed on schedule. This is great for a schedule for a child that is very familiar with a system of picture exchange or is not as easily distracted by upcoming activities.

*VOICE CAN BE ADDED TO IMAGES *and added to the images to help further reinforce schedule and to aid with receptive and expressive language acquisition. Please note, that if you have an iTouch that you will need to purchase a microphone to record sound.



Choice Board
Price $4.99

The primary purpose of MY CHOICE BOARD is to present a visual display of “choices” to those with limited communication skills. This gives individuals with Autism, communication delays or learning differences the opportunity to be independent and express their own specific needs and wants.

This app. WILL work on the iPad providing you have the iOS 4.2 update.

How it works:

Images are selected based on preference of the user and displayed on the choice board (Example: Free time activity choices). The individual touches the preferred choice to show their preference (use the computer). The preferred selection is then displayed in the “I want” strip at the top of the application screen. Touch the image again and the image is enlarged and shown on the entire screen. If you have selected to record voice to the choices, with each selection the prerecorded message is produced. This is a wonderful visual support tool as well as an excellent introduction for those who maybe exploring the idea of using the iTouch or iPad as an assistive communication tool.

Customizable Options Include:

•User can save multiple Choice Boards.
A variety of different choice boards can be created and saved for future use. Choice boards can be themed to display whatever the preferences are of the individual i.e.: sensory choices, playtime or activity choices, restaurant options or food preferences.

•User Can Select the number of choices available on a Choice Board (You can add MORE than six images, you just need to swipe the screen to view more choices):

•Choices can be edited to show they are “unavailable”:
Choices can be edited under the edit screen to show that they are not available. A red circle with a slash is placed over the image to emphasize the choice is unavailable. This can be removed in the editing menu when the choice becomes an option.

•Images can be uploaded from iPhone camera, Internet image search feature or from personal computer:
User can upload images for use in the choice board and then can save them in the image library for use in later choice board. The camera on the iPhone make MY CHOICE BOARD perfect for trips to the store and allows a medium to encourage an individual to express their preferences toward certain items or activities.

•User has the option of recording sound to be added to images:
Adding sound to corresponding images helps reinforce receptive communication and encourage expressive language.

PLEASE NOTE: When using Touch, you must use an external microphone to record sound to the application.

Inspired by our own non-verbal child with Autism, we formed Good Karma Applications to create technology to assist individuals with learning differences to reach their full potential.

*CHECKLIST FEATURE* can be turned “on” or “off” within the “settings” menu. You can add a checkmark by a task to visually indicate that the task is completed.

Once a visual scene is created with active sound areas, scenes can be added into “Books”. Books can be created and images grouped into the book by a specific theme or area of interest. Multiple books can be created within the book library and as many visual scenes as needed added into the “book”. For example: you may want to create a “Book” titled “My Home”. Within that book may want to include images of different rooms in the home. Within those images you can add “sound areas” to label different objects or people that are represented in those images.

Here in the UK we don’t have the yellow school buses. It’s very easy to make a storyboard.” ASunrise

“User friendly, easy to navigate, helps for making choices. Meal time was always so frustrating when I didn’t know what my daughter wanted, so I created an entire menu of breakfast items in less than 2 minutes. Perfect for the visual learner who is still developing their language skills.” KelD

“This app has helped ease my sons anxiety and lessens his stress. Thank you for making our day a little easier!” Ginamcc1

We created iCommunicate to help our own child. It helped us reach our goals for our family. We know everyone has individual and unique needs. We bring you the technology and you customize it to meet these goals. We can’t wait to hear how it helps you.

iReward
Price $2.99

► Selected by Apple for Apps for Special Education
► See Demo at grembe.com
► Visit http://getsatisfaction.com/grembe – our community oriented support site

iReward is a motivational tool for your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad. You can create a star chart or token board to help reinforce positive behaviors using visual rewards. Use of motivational charts is not limited to any one group. We all benefit from motivation to achieve our goals! This type of praise or approval will help parents of typically developing children, children with autism, developmental delays, ADHD, and anxiety disorders. We’ve updated the app to support multiple users and added more customizable options.

-Organize by name for families, classrooms, or patients
-Custom color backgrounds and tokens(gold and red stars, smileys, check boxes, and gold coins)
-Use camera, pictures loaded on device, or image search to add pictures
-Use two pictures to reinforce a first-then reward
-Record custom audio and/or play keyboard cat video when reward completed
-Ability to lock app from changes and unlock by shaking device and entering password
-Options for larger images and text, and for playing sound when adding a token

“My students love this app the best because they get to earn stars! I am an SLP who uses iReward to help my students with autism anticipate the end of an activity or to provide incentive to complete a difficult task. It is very easy to customize” miker1972

“I use this with a child who has high functioning autism, but many parents have seen me use it, and been inspired. I think it’s a great concrete way to encourage kids with positive discipline – it’s especially good for preschoolers. My son loves that he can take a photograph of the reward he’s going to earn” uumomma

“This app is wonderful. I use it for my autistic son. We have used a token board for a while and this replaces that. I don’t have a clipboard with velcro all over it and tokens that can be a choking hazard. That is a thing of the past. This is fantastic. It still gives him something tangible when he completes a task and he loves it” Ruperto

“I used this for the first time last night with my 19 year old autistic son. He was more interactive with me as he counted down the remaining stars with each completed task. And he knew all along he was working for 1 hour of computer time so there were less protests when his time was up on the computer” Michele G

“I was very pleased with this app! It is easy to use & individualize for my child’s goals. She has Asperger’s so use of a token economy such as this is very helpful. Not to say it could not be used for any child, because it can. My daughter loves setting a goal, picking out the reward, & placing a star each time she completes a task on the list. It is also helpful as it is portable; imagine carrying a sticker chart everywhere you went (no fun)” RNTP

“I use this application daily within my clinical treatment environment!! It has been EXTREMELY effective in helping children stay on task while providing clear feedback. It’s very easy to use and can be customized to the likes of each child individually. I also find that children like that they can interact with it by placing the smiley face, check mark, star, etc. It also has a component that helps some to transition to the next activity since they know they are done with the current task when the cat plays the piano. I would highly recommend this application to all parents, not just parents of children with special needs. GREAT APP for a GREAT PRICE!” MAustin.

Partial Products Multiplication
Price $3.99


This math app can be used to teach and study the partial products multiplication method. The app is easy to use and it has an intuitive interactive interface with customizable colors and other settings.

Endorsed by teachers

R. Zeni, Ecole Sandy Hill Elementary, Abbotsford, BC, Canada:

“The math apps by Esa Helttula allow students to practice and reinforce the specific computation strategies taught in class, with as much or as little scaffolding as necessary. They also provide individualized feedback to each student, with an immediacy that is not always possible through pencil and paper practice. Being able to adjust the level of difficulty to suit their needs is also very motivating for the students. I am so glad to have come across this great educational tool!”

Z. R. Prowell, Highlands Elementary, Edina, Minnesota, USA:

“In my class I have used them to assist students with seeing the steps to properly completing multiplication operations such as partial products and partial quotients. There are students who see my examples who still need some guidance, and after using your app have said, “Now I get it.” The feature of selecting possible solutions in each step helps some of my students who are still building their multiplication facts. They can gain experience in using these new concepts but not be left behind. Helping student understanding are the animations. They are smooth and really illustrate a step-by-step understanding of how to complete new styles of multiplication.”

The Partial Products Multiplication Method

The partial products multiplication method is a two-step process. In the example 39 x 24, each place value is first multiplied separately. The partial products are added and 36 + 120 + 180 + 600 produces the answer 936.

In the Everyday Mathematics curriculum the partial products method is the focus algorithm for multiplication.

The App is Easy to Use

The numbers are aligned automatically so that the user can concentrate on solving the operations for each column.

After you solve the operation for each partial product the correct answer will fly to the right place. If you press the wrong button the answer will appear above the keyboard but it will not move.

The App has the Following Features:

– Each number can have from 2 to 3 digits.
– The current operation can be hidden.
– You can solve custom and random problems
– The operands of the current operation can be highlighted.
– Colors of the interface can be changed.
– The speed of the animations can be set.

Video of the App

You can see a video of the Partial Products Multiplication app in action at my site idevbooks.com.

Feedback and Requests for New Features

I have made this app to be a useful teaching and learning tool for those children and parents that use the Everyday Mathematics curriculum. New ideas to make this app better are welcome.

Please give feedback at iTunes or visit my site idevbooks.com and give feedback there about this application. Please tell me if you have any ideas for new features.

Review by funeducationalapps.com:

“iDevBooks educational math apps make math enjoyable and entertaining. One of my sons was struggling with math and I must say the use of iDevBooks math apps has really helped him. He now enjoys his math..”

Review by professor Tim Pelton

Tim Pelton, assistant professor of Mathematics Education at the University of Victoria reviewed the sister app of column addition – column subtraction:

“Because no wrong entries are allowed the app provides a passive form of positive reinforcement and your child will likely improve in both confidence and competence with respect to the procedure.”

The interface of Column Addition app is similar to Column Subtraction.

Endorsed by teachers

Rita Zeni, Ecole Sandy Hill Elementary, Abbotsford, BC, Canada:

“The Math apps by Esa Helttula allow students to practice and reinforce the specific computation strategies taught in class, with as much or as little scaffolding as necessary.

Being able to adjust the level of difficulty to suit their needs is also very motivating for the students. I am so glad to have come across this great educational tool!”

Easy to Use

The numbers are aligned automatically and the user can concentrate on solving the operations for each column. Carrying is handled automatically and it is visualized using a nice animation.

After the user solves the operation for each column the correct answer will fly to the right place. The unit of the answer will fly under the column and the ten is carried over the next column.

If the user presses the wrong button the answer will appear above the keyboard but it will not move.

Over 20 Six-piece Picture Puzzles

The puzzles are pictures of cute animals. Every time the user solves one addition problem, he will see one more piece of a six-piece picture puzzle.

The column subtraction method is also known as columnar subtraction, long subtraction or longhand subtraction.

Review by professor Tim Pelton

Tim Pelton, assistant professor of Mathematics Education at the University of Victoria:

“If your goal is to help your child to master the traditional subtraction algorithm then Column Subtraction may be the ideal App.”

“With the ‘show current operation’ option turned on, they are constantly reminded of the next step, which can lead to efficient practice of the procedure. Then by turning off the current operation your child is able to practice remembering the steps on his/her own. Because no wrong entries are allowed the app provides a passive form of positive reinforcement and your child will likely improve in both confidence and competence with respect to the procedure.”

Endorsed by teachers

Rita Zeni, Ecole Sandy Hill Elementary, Abbotsford, BC, Canada:

Long Multiplication
Price $3.99

From a review in funeducationalapps.com: “My oldest kid has been struggling with long multiplications for a while. We have been practising and practising. Doing the traditional way on paper is ok but nothing really exciting. He is so reluctant to do it. Thanks to the iPod, it all changed few weeks ago when I downloaded the Long Multiplication App for the iPod or iPhone. Don’t expect your kids to go crazy and be like “thank you so much mum for this app” … it is still straight forward math and needs to be introduced as a help and support tool to the process of learning long multiplication. We work it out at during homework time and it does wonders, my son actually enjoys doing long multiplication, it is a nice break.”

Fraction Math
Price $3.99

“This app is loaded with helpful math information and you will find below many of the ways in which kids can simplify learning and preparing math assignments”

Suitable for several grades and also for adults

A third-grade student can use the app to add and subtract fractions with equal denominators.

A fourth-grade student can use the app to add or subtract fractions and mixed numbers with different denominators and also to reduce the resulting fractions.

A fifth-grade student can multiply fractions by whole numbers and other fractions. She can also divide fractions and mixed numbers.

A sixth or higher-grade student can use negative fractions, whole numbers and mixed numbers in the problems. She can also use larger numbers.

The above grades and their uses of the app are only provided as examples.

The user can choose how to solve the problems

In each step the user is presented with two choices. Sometimes both of the choices are right. When multiplying fractions the user can choose to first multiply the numerators or the denominators.

In those cases when there is only one possible next step, the user can choose between the right step and a random wrong step. For wrong steps, the app will tell, why that is the wrong step.

Intelligent help system

The Fraction Math app has a help system that provides over 60 context sensitive tips based on the state of the app. For example, when searching for a lowest common denominator, the help system will first tell how to search for the answer. If, after trying herself the user cannot find the answer, the help system will tell her what the lowest common denominator is.

Smart keyboard

When the user has to enter numbers, the Fraction Math app uses the same intuitive smart rolling keyboard as my other apps. Only one tap is needed to enter any number. In reducing fractions, a special prime number keyboard is shown.

Every step is animated

Every step in solving the problems is animated. The speed of the animations can be set and they can also be turned off.

Fun illustrations

Burdened by responsibility and trapped by routine, this ogre has lost his roar.

But the fine print of the contract lands him in an alternate universe where he’s feared, all right, but he’s also never rescued Fiona or met Donkey, Puss in Boots, Gingy and all his fairytale friends. Now, to get back to reality and his family, Shrek has to find Fiona and defeat the devious Rumpelstiltskin before the deal expires.

As they work through their differences, Tim and Sammy deal with issues of one-sidedness, prejudgement, food intolerance and ultimately, conflict resolution all in a light heated, fun story.

Food Fight has been specially remastered for the iPad and iPhone/iPod Touch by Jelly Biscuits using the original illustrations and text from Glenn Melenhorst’s popular children’s book, with Glenn’s input and feedback at every step (and even his voice for the read mode!). The collaboration has created an interactive experience to delight both young and old. 


From the author: ‘I have received so many wonderful responses to the book that I am thrilled to re-release it to a wider audience and a brand new batch of young readers. I always write foremost to please myself so I hope you get a kick out of reading ‘Food Fight’ to your youngsters.’

Jellybiscuits strives to bring a new, contemporary voice to the iPad, iPod and iPhone by publishing new works that speak to a new generation of children. The interactivity in Food Fight is designed to enhance to story without getting in the way; to extend the exploration and entertainment of the story without obscuring the charm of the story itself. We’ve had fun making ‘Food Fight’ and are proud to bring you Glenn’s wonderful book. We hope you enjoy reading and interacting with Food Fight!’

Jellybean Tunes
Price $2.99

Play! Learn! Create! Jellybean Tunes is a wonderful introduction to playing, reading and creating music.

– Play many different children’s and classical songs. Sing along, record and play back your performance!

– Learn the basics of reading music through 6 different narrated and animated lessons.

– Create your own songs with the intuitive editor. Give them names and pictures from your photo library for that personal touch, then play, sing and record your own creations.

We like the editor so much that we used it ourselves to add all of the songs included in the app.

Ever wondered what a piece of sheet music sounds like? Our create feature allows you to add the melody of songs from easy or beginner piano books to discover how the melody sounds.

You can even take Jellybean Tunes to a real piano in place of sheet music. The iPad fits nicely on the music rack. As the notes scroll by, play your melody without having to stop to turn a page. Our replay feature allows you to listen to your recorded performance.

Made by the parents of a preschooler, Jellybean Tunes introduces children to the musical staff through lessons and fun activities. Big, colourful notes, buttons and backgrounds present music in an engaging and fun way suited to younger hands. Playing songs by touching notes on the staff shows children (and adults!) where the notes are, what sounds they make, and what letters are associated with them. The lessons take learning a step further by gently presenting basic music theory. The editor allows freedom to explore and create music, further reinforcing musical concepts.

We made this app to help further our own child’s interest in music. He loves listening to his recordings of him playing and singing… and he likes to create really, really long songs!



Jellybean Tunes Holiday Edition
Price $0.99

Made by parents of a preschooler, Jellybean Tunes encourages young children to explore music and the musical staff through sight, touch and sound, taking full advantage of the touch-based interface, helping them to learn the names of notes in association with their sounds and position on the musical staff.

Jellybean Tunes inspires young minds to learn and explore music:

– by interacting with the colorful scrolling notes to play popular child-friendly songs
– by challenging themselves in a quiz mode where they are encouraged to identify the correct note and are greeted with a happy little surprise at the end
– by creating their own songs by touching the musical staff to produce notes and playing them back with a simple playback feature

Our festive holiday edition includes twelve classic Christmas carols and even a cozy Yule log.

★★ iPad App of the Week ★★
★★ Winner of Parents’ Choice Silver Award ★★
★★ Awarded Kirkus Star ★★

The very first digital Sandra Boynton book app is here, and it’s completely terrific! iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch rejoice!

Boynton Moo Media teams up with award-winning Loud Crow Interactive, to bring to life her beloved, funny, wildly best-selling bedtime board book, The Going to Bed Book.

“I absolutely adore working with the ridiculously creative and innovative team at Loud Crow,” says Sandra Boynton, “and I am so proud of what we’ve done together with The Going to Bed Book. Our interactive book app version of my book manages to both retain the original board book experience, and add a subtle, yet captivating dimension to it. It’s such wonderful fun. And oh! I am so smitten by Billy J. Kramer’s infinitely reassuring narration for this, and Michael Ford’s understated and lovely piano composition.”

Far beyond any e-book experience, The Going to Bed Book app has all the magic and appeal of a traditional pop-up book, offering lively interactivity and thoroughly mesmerizing discovery. Imagine! An ark that rocks. Characters that respond to touch with sound and movement. Tap water that turns on and off, and steam that fogs the screen. Can you write your name in the steam? Of course! There are teeth to brush, and a group exercise session with ten pajama-clad animals (big and small) each with its own unique exercise. Help the little piggy turn off the lights, then rock yourself to sleep to the music box sound of twinkling stars. There’s something wonderful to discover on every page.

Boynton adds, “Of course The Going to Bed Book app is first and foremost for children, and I know they will be captivated and delighted. But it’s also perfect for agitated high-level executives. What a great evening-time alternative to reviewing the minutes of last week’s Near-Term Strategic Wombat Acquisitions meeting.”

Features:


* The first Sandra Boynton book app, going far beyond what an e-book experience can offer
* Touch, pull, and turn animals and objects to make them move, or tilt your device to watch things slide and cascade
* Wonderful resonant and gentle narration by British Invasion legend, Billy J. Kramer
* Boynton’s original text and illustrations for her popular The Going to Bed Book (over 5 million in print!)
* Realistic page turning interactions just like the original board book

* “The Big Guy Reads It” with word highlighting to help improve reading skills
* Or “I want to read it myself” and hear individual words pronounced with the tap of a finger
* What’s next from Boynton Moo Media and Loud Crow Interactive? Hint: What do three singing pigs say?


Moo, Baa, La La La! – Boynton
Price $0.99

★★ Parents’ Choice Recommended App ★★
★★ Kirkus Reviews – Kirkus Star ★★
★★ Children’s Technology Review Editor’s Choice ★★
★★ Common Sense Media – 5 Stars ★★
★★ Apple New and Noteworthy ★★

JUST MOO IT! Sandra Boynton’s best-selling book of all time comes alive with sound and movement and gloriously unpredictable interactivity. The wryly inventive Moo, Baa, La La La! digital book app will intrigue and amuse little kids and big people alike, and perhaps even elicit an appreciative snort from the occasional uninvited rhinoceros.

“This is my second digital book project with the perfectly wonderful team at Loud Crow,” says Sandra Boynton, “and I’m really happy with what we’ve created together. As with The Going to Bed Book, our interactive book app version of Moo, Baa, La La La! succeeds in retaining the original board book experience, while adding multi-sensory dimension. It’s such a cool enterprise.”

Far beyond any e-book experience, the Moo, Baa, La La La! interactive book app has all the magic and appeal of a traditional pop-up book, offering lively interactivity and nifty discovery. Of course you can hear each animal make its unique sound. (In some cases, VERY unique.) But there’s more! Help the perplexed chicken stagehand raise the curtain on a stageful of dapper dancing pigs. Turn day to night with the touch of the moon. Slingshot the running cats away from the barking dogs. A touch of the duck activates a quack which brings in another duck. And another. And another. Even the back cover has a curiously articulate spokesman that you really mustn’t miss.

Features:


* The second Boynton Moo Media book app (following their top-selling debut, The Going To Bed Book app), venturing far beyond what an e-book experience can offer

* Touch the animals to hear them moo or oink or quack or even, in the case of three incongruous showbiz pigs, harmonize

* Boynton has redrawn and recolored the original illustrations for her most popular book ever, Moo, Baa, La La La! (over 5 million in print!)

* Includes an original instrumental soundtrack, “Country Air,” a wonderful uptempo pastoral string quartet written by Michael Ford

* Realistic page turning interactions just like the original board book

* “The Big Guy Reads It” with word highlighting to help improve reading skills

* Or “I want to read it myself” and hear individual words pronounced with the tap of a finger

* What’s next from the amazing team of Boynton Moo Media and Loud Crow Interactive? Hint: “Oops.”

Blue Hat, Green Hat – Boynton
Price $2.99

★ Children’s Technology Review Editor’s Choice ★

“OOPS…” Blue Hat, Green Hat, Sandra Boynton’s famous and funny book, comes alive with sound and zestily ingenious interactivity. This wonderfully clever digital book app will surprise kids and grownups alike. Turkeys may also enjoy it, if they can ever figure out how to turn the dang thing on.

Three earnest animals and one misguided turkey learn colors and clothes. Though admittedly, the turkey never quite gets the hang of it.

“I have a particular fondness for Blue Hat, Green Hat,” says Sandra Boynton. “At age three, my son Devin had a surprisingly hearty laugh for a small person—a laugh that would make everyone else laugh. I created this book long ago specifically to elicit that belly-laugh from him. It was great fun to re-invent this book as an interactive e-book app, collaborating again with my endlessly clever Loud Crow friends. The digital dimension gave us so many terrific opportunities for adding theatrical flair to this spare yet decidedly Vaudeville book.”

Far beyond any e-book experience, the Blue Hat, Green Hat interactive book app has all the magic and appeal of a traditional pop-up book, offering lively interactivity and nifty discovery.

Features:


• The third Sandra Boynton book app, all of them created in collaboration between Boynton Moo Media along with the award-winning developer Loud Crow Interactive. Blue Hat, Green Hat follows their wonderful top-selling debut, The Going To Bed Book app, and the glorious bestselling Moo, Baa, La La La! app.

• Touch the animals to prompt them to move and respond. Touch “OOPS” to cause a different surprise on each page. Tilt your device to watch things slide and cascade. Dress the turkey with colorful pop-in/pop-out clothes

• Boynton has redrawn and recolored the original illustrations, and also added new touch-animations, for her enormously popular book, Blue Hat, Green Hat

• Wonderful resonant and wry narration by British Invasion legend, Billy J. Kramer (acclaimed reader of The Going To Bed Book app) and sound by Boynton & Ford. Includes an original soundtrack, “William Mattel Overture,” a melody for toy crank-guitar, written by Sandra Boynton, performed by Michael Ford

• Realistic page turning interactions just like the original board book


• “The Big Guy Reads It” with word highlighting to help improve reading skills

• Or “I want to read it myself” to hear individual words pronounced with the tap of a finger

TeachMe Colors 2
Price $1.99

Who says learning can’t be fun?
This is the second in a series of 3 teaching color Apps. ‘TeachMe Colors 2’ is aimed generally at 3-5 year olds and encompasses the concept of play-based learning. Through a series of fun-filled activities the child will learn the names of 19 colors!
Each activity allows you to guide your child through steps designed to teach them the recognition of colors.

Features:
• 5 fully interactive activities for your child to explore!
• The Color Memory Game Activity has 12 cards and the choice of 2 card backs!
• 5 Stamps and 3 drawing sizes are available in the Drawing Activity!
• Random Color and Object Activity has 17 different colors and objects!
• The Random Color and Object Activity includes cars that flash their headlights and honk their horns upon touch and a train that blows smoke and whistles! Your child’s expression as they discover how each object interacts will be priceless!
• A ‘Preferred Spelling’ option is available allowing you to choose the spelling of the words ‘Grey/Gray’ and ‘Color/Colour’.

Activity 1: Random Light And Dark Balloon Activity
This activity introduces the concept of light and dark colors using four different sets of colored balloons. Once all three balloons have risen, the name of each color appears behind them. Direct your child to ‘POP’ each balloon to reveal the color name in full. Try playing a game with your child asking them to pop a particular balloon, such as the Light Blue one. Then ask them to pop either of the other two balloons, thus encouraging them to distinguish between different tints and shades of the same color. Once all balloons have been popped, the next set of colored balloons will rise automatically.

Activity 2: Named Random Color Activity
Guiding your child, point to the circle of color and say its name. As each colored circle is touched the name above it expands to draw attention to the association between the color and word. The initial focus is to teach the child that each color has its own written name, without expecting them to learn to spell it – this will come when they are ready.

Activity 3: Random Color and Object Activity
Guiding your child, point to each object and say not only its name, but also its color such as ‘RED CAR’. This enforces the concept that the same object can be many different colors. Try asking your child questions as each new object appears such as ‘What color is the Fish?’ or ‘Is this a Light Blue or Dark Blue Hat?’. Let your child discover the way each object reacts to their touch!

Activity 4: Drawing Activity
Your child can choose from 3 widths or sizes to use with the pencil or stamps. A choice of 19 colors are available for their selection. Using their finger, encourage your child to create their own colorful artwork in the blank space by drawing lines with the pencil and applying the stamps by tapping the screen. Allow their imagination to run free as they express themselves creatively! You can also save the picture into your iPad’s Photo Album where you can easily email it to family and friends.

Activity 5: Color Memory Game Activity
A fun-based activity where your child selects two cards at a time. If they are the same color a sound is played to let them know they have found a matching pair. This activity assists not only with color recognition and matching, but also with memory recall. When all color pairs have been found your child will be rewarded with happy cheering! A choice of two card backs are available featuring the series characters Eli and Izzy. This is a great game for your child to play with a little friend to encourage turn-taking!

The age range given above is a general guide only as children learn at their own pace. You as the parent will know when your child is ready for the next stage of ‘TeachMe Colors’.

Also available in the TeachMe Colors Series:
TeachMe Colors 1 (aimed generally at children 1-3yrs)
TeachMe Colors 3 (aimed generally at children 5-7yrs)

Measurement HD
Price $0.99

Mathomatix: Measurement

Punflay is back with another addition to our top-selling Mathomatix series. This time kindergarteners can get introduced to basic concepts of measurement such as weight, volume and length. As with the rest of the apps in the Mathomatix series, Measurement has also been developed
based on National and California Standards. Set in an utterly cute learning environment, Mathomatix-Measurement is sure to get your child’s attention with its bright and cheerful graphics and fun activities.

The app comes with five activities that each teach a measurement concept.

Crazy Clock: A friendly voice announces the time and all you do is to move the minute hand of a cute clock to set the correct time. Kids will get lots of practice learning to associate time with familiar activities in their day. Crazy Clock is a great introduction to the concept of time.

Scale Tale: This activity introduces kids to the concept of weight. An adorable one-eyed monster teaches kids this concept by holding two items and allowing them to guess which item is heavier or lighter. Is a pineapple heavier or lighter than a cup cake? Is a head of cabbage heavier or lighter than a strawberry? Familiar objects help kids learn the concept easily.

Fill Me Up: If you had to teach the concept of volume at home you are sure to have a mess all over the floor. Instead, Fill Me Up allows you to teach this concept through easy exercises such as filling pitchers with liquids or jars with cookies minus the mess.

Long and Short: Crayons, buses, park benches are all some of the familiar objects in a kid’s life. And these can be found in this activity as objects of comparison to learn the concept of length. This game presents two objects of different lengths. Simply tap on the one that is longer or shorter.

Action Months:This game introduces the basics of duration of time through a simple drag and drop activity to fill in the letters of the months. Kindergarteners can practice the names of the months and get ready for more sophisticated concept of time in higher grades.

How could we forget to mention My Stuff? We know kids love rewards and so we have that too in Measurement. Kids will love seeing their stash of rewards grow each time they add points.

Mathomatix Measurement is a must have to your collection of Mathomatix series. And by the way, we would love to know what you think of this or any of our other apps.

Arithmetic Invaders Grade 1
Price $0.99

Play one of eight Arithmetic Invaders games to defend the solar system and master the Grade 1 arithmetic.
* Three addition games
* Two subtraction games
* Two multiplication games
* One division game

Arithmetic Invaders (AI) Application is designed as a unique application that both educates and entertains your child.

Intuitive table structure is used to present the list of campaigns. Each campaign displays a title, short description and the best score. The score is calculated by subtracting missed attempts from successful attempts.

By tapping on a row a child is able to move from the campaign selection to the game play page.

The main game interface consists of four invader space ships, laser gun, navigation controls and firing control. Each invader ship has an expression associated with it. Once computed the expression defines ship’s wave length. The gun has a number representing laser’s wave length attached to it. In order to neutralize the descending ship the gun must be aligned with a ship matching the gun’s frequency and laser must be activated.

A child uses navigation pads to move the gun between positions. Once the gun is aligned with the targeted ship, the child should tap on the red firing button to discharge the laser. Gun’s wave length changes with every firing.
Practically, the child is expected to calculate the value of the expressions displayed on the invader ships. In order to score, the child is expected to connect the number printed on the laser gun with the result of the corresponding mathematical expression.

The game ends with either an invader ship touching the grounds (mission failure) or expiration of the game period (mission success). Once the game is finished, a summary that includes the number of successful and unsuccessful attempts is displayed.

Game length can be adjusted on the info page accessible from the campaign selection page.

Speak In Motion

VAST Songs 1
Price $2.50

VAST-Songs is part of the growing VAST family of apps that use VAST videos to augment and enhance proven speech therapy techniques. It is a great therapeutic tool for a wide range of speech impairments and communication disorders such as Apraxia and non-fluent Aphasia.

VAST is an innovative application of video technology to facilitate and improve communication abilities for speech-impaired individuals. Following close-up video of mouth movements allows these individuals to speak themselves. The simultaneous combination of visual, auditory and, in some cases, written cues, allows these individuals to readily produce speech.

This app supplements the accepted use of singing in speech therapy by providing extra cueing: simultaneously hearing the song while following the oral movements. Songs have been an accepted treatment technique in speech therapy for many years. This originated with the awareness that many people with speech problems can sing better than they can speak: using melody and rhythm enables individuals to say words and phrases that they could not produce under other circumstances. It’s also well known that music stimulates several different areas of the brain. Multiple research studies have shown that stimulating different areas of the brain results in improved speech production.

The material in this app was developed by Darlene Williamson, M.A., CCC-SLP, an Apraxia expert with 30+ years of professional experience and 2+ years of experience using and developing the VAST program in a clinical environment.

The app provides 10 songs that were carefully chosen for a specific reason or therapeutic application. Since language areas of the brain are stimulated when someone sings, there is an inherent value for the user to just sing the songs. The most desirable end result of using this app would be for the automaticity involved in singing to generalize to speech production. The app includes a Use Guide for therapy – background on the use of singing in therapy, suggestions as to how the translation from singing to speech can be approached using this app and why each song was chosen.

The user may choose to view written text subtitles in the videos for an additional visual cue. Additionally, this app gives the user the option of choosing songs performed by either a male or female model. While this has no particular significance to the success of VAST videos for singing, it was an opportunity to gather more user feedback with regard to the male/female preference.

If you’re willing to offer any feedback about this or have any other input surrounding VAST-Songs, please contact us at interest@speakinmotion.com.

*Please look for upcoming VAST apps and SpeakinMotion’s custom recording service….COMING SOON!



VAST Autism 1-Core
Price $2.50

VASTTM-Autism provides unprecedented support for spoken language, combining evidence-based best practices and technology to deliver remarkable results.

VAST-Autism is a groundbreaking tool that provides state-of-the-art therapy to students with autism and motor speech programming disorders such as apraxia. VAST-Autism combines the highly effective concept of video modeling with written words and auditory cues to help individuals acquire relevant words, phrases and sentences so that they can speak for themselves. For children and individuals with strong visual skills, this can be a key to developing speech.

Ongoing research and initial pilot studies indicate that students are highly interested in VAST videos, and will almost immediately attempt lip movements or touch their mouths in response to the models. After a few short weeks, many students who were essentially nonverbal began word approximations and word attempts more readily. Perhaps, the best and most unexpected therapeutic improvements have been in the students’ ability to generalize skills. Individuals may begin attending to the speaker’s oral motor movements during daily communication and continue learning speech in a traditional, naturalistic manner.

After trialing the application with her students, Harumi Kato, MS, CCC-SLP said:

“The VAST-Autism app is more than AWESOME. My students showed immediate results. To my surprise, after the FIRST trail, they started to vocalize some sounds. You will see amazing results, especially with students who do not respond to traditional speech therapy.”

Videos are organized into a hierarchy of 5 categories beginning with syllables and ending with sentences. Each video gives a spoken target utterance that is preceded by the written word(s). Each word, phrase and sentence is concrete and has meaning that can be generalized and practiced throughout the day. Providing the written word will prevent a student from labeling a picture of a frog jumping as “go,” a person laying on a mat as “break time” or labeling a swing as “weee.” The ability to recognize the written target word(s) will increase functional communication and enhance acquisition of spoken language. The progression of VAST-Autism Videos is as follows:

1. Syllable Repetition
2. Single Syllable Words
3. Multi-Syllabic Words
4. Phrases
5. Sentences

OneVoice turns the iPad or iPhone into an augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) device. Building on the simplicity of iOS devices, OneVoice is easy to understand, and designed for usability above everything else.

– Over 100 custom made icons
– Drag and drop organization of phrases and categories
– Choose and crop your own photos from the device photo gallery or your camera.

OneVoice costs a small fraction of most AAC devices while providing a better overall experience.

Note: OneVoice does not have any mature or suggestive content. It is only rated 17+ because of the high price, which Apple does not have an option for.

Twas Night before Christmas HD
Price $0.99

“Twas the Night Before Christmas” is a poem first published anonymously in 1823 and generally attributed to Clement Clarke Moore, although the claim has also been made that it was written by Henry Livingston, Jr.

The poem, which has been called “arguably the best-known verses ever written by an American”, is largely responsible for the conception of Santa Claus from the mid-nineteenth century to today, including his physical appearance, the night of his visit, his mode of transportation, the number and names of his reindeer, as well as the tradition that he brings toys to children.

On Christmas Eve night, while his wife and children sleep, a man awakens to noises outside his house. Looking out the window, he sees St. Nicholas in a sleigh pulled by eight reindeer. After flying on to the roof, the saint enters the house through the chimney, carrying a sack of toys with him. The man watches Nicholas filling the children’s stockings hanging by the fire, and laughs to himself. They share a conspiratorial moment before the saint bounds up the chimney again. As he flies away, Nicholas wishes everyone a happy Christmas.

DTT is the primary teaching method used in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) to teach numerous pre-academic and social skills to children with autism. This app can be used to help teach numbers and counting to children with autism, attention deficit disorder (ADD), or attention deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD). The apps also can be used by any child who has trouble staying on task.

Finding the right therapy for a child with autism can be overwhelming. Only Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) has years of scientific research proving its effectiveness and is recommended by The National Institute of Mental Health and the Surgeon General. But caregivers quickly learn that well-trained therapists in ABA are expensive and hard to find. During my forty years of clinical experience as a Licensed Psychologist I have tried to provide low-cost ABA resources for caregivers so they can do their own ABA. ABA and DTT increases your child’s likelihood of being mainstreamed, increases happiness, and gives you hope.
