Melodic Based Communication Therapy
By Givona Sandiford
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Melodic Based Communication Therapy (M.B.C.T.) Level 1 is an evidence based intervention designed by a speech language pathologist to help caregivers and therapists assist nonverbal and low verbal children (less than 10 words) with autism learn to speak. While designed for children with autism, the application may also be used to help young preverbal children learn new words. The application will assist in teaching children to say single words that many children learn first using research based melodies. The application contains 25 melodies, 25 colorful photos, a link to research on M.B.C.T., an outline of the steps involved in the process, and a method for tracking progress.

Sound fix, great app! Awesome costumer service
*if the sound isn't working, make sure your side switch is on, it's right above the volume on your iPad* I really like this app so far. The kids are drawn to it and we use it as kind of a warm-up now that it's become part of some of their routines. I had a problem with the sound so I messaged them on their facebook page and they responded in less than an hour with a very thorough explanation! Thank you!
I am so excited to be using this app with my students. The students are drawn to the singing and are immediately engaged and attempting to sing along. It is an awesome feeling to be a part of a child's first word.
Trying it out now...
I am going to use this with my students. Glad the bugs were fixed! Thanks!
