iPrompts®, the original app for visual supports, is used by parents, special educators and therapists of those with autism and other developmental delays. iPrompts® also works great with individuals who just need more structure, including kids with ADD/ADHD, and even typical, pre-verbal toddlers!
iPrompts® has been acclaimed on television and in news stories worldwide. Created by the parents of a boy with Autism and researched under a U.S. Department of Education study, the app provides several useful visual prompting tools (no audio prompts or voice output) to help impaired individuals transition from one activity to the next, understand upcoming events, make choices, and focus on the task at hand:
* PICTURE SCHEDULES: Allows caregivers to create and present sequences of pictures, guiding those they care for through activities of any sort. Schedules can have many pictures, or even just two (i.e., to create a FIRST THIS, THEN THAT picture prompt). Captions can be edited for each image, allowing users to create simple Social Stories. To create a schedule, users can choose from hundreds of stock photos and illustrations provided by iPrompts®, or download pictures with Web-enabled searching all from right within the app!
* VISUAL COUNTDOWN TIMER: This feature displays an image of the caregiver's choice along with a graphical countdown timer (set to any duration), and is useful for demonstrating how much time is left until a current activity ends, or before the next pictured activity begins.
* CHOICE PROMPTS: Lets caregivers offer choices between images, empowering those who cannot vocalize their preferences. When rotated horizontally, the Choice Prompt and Visual Schedule features enlarge and orient images for display to individuals needing visual support.
* EXPANDABLE IMAGE LIBRARY: Our starter library includes hundreds of useful illustrations and digital pictures across many categories. NOOK Tablet users may also add their own images to the Library through a built-in Web Search feature. Users may also duplicate or delete images, and edit their captions.
iPrompts® is a portable, flexible, easy-to-use, stigma-free and green alternative to using physical pictures, and is especially helpful in reducing the frustrations of everyday life when traveling or on the go. The app is also the subject of several U.S. Department of Education-funded research studies in special education settings.
