Teach2Talk's Behaviors with Friends
By Teach2Talk, LLC
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Our Behaviors with Friends app use videos of real children in common social situations to help teach your child how to behave appropriately, solve problems, make good decisions, and properly communicate with their friends and other peers.
Your child watches the video scenarios, and then the narrator and animated characters stop the action to ask your children questions. Correct answers are rewarded with collectible stickers for your child's virtual sticker book, and wrong answers are explained and results in another chance.
Behaviors with Friends looks and feels like a game, so you child will have fun while learning.
Each "Story" focuses on a common behavioral problem for children, such as:
• resolving conflicts with peers without resorting to tantrums, name calling or physical violence;
• self-management and dealing with anger and frustration in a positive fashion;
• sharing and taking turns with friends;
• being a good sport;
• telling the truth;
• bullying; and
• not interrupting.
Really happy with this app
My daughter very much enjoys this app. The videos explain each situation well and the questions that children answer afterwards help children to understand the correct thrives for them to make in social situations. I love that this app provides positive reinforcement throughout each stage . My daughter's collection of apps was lacking an app that helped with social and emotional development and Behaviors with Friends has absolutely fixed that.
I am a pediatric occupational therapist and this is a great app for young children with autism or any other disability that may cause social situations to be challenging. The use of video modeling along with engaging questions from the narrator, teach children how to navigate social situations, while also encouraging the use of executive function skills.
Disclaimer: I received this app as part of a paid sponsorship on my blog.
My son is really learning from this!
As soon as I downloaded the app my son laid down on the floor and started playing. In fact, he spent probably an hour interacting with it. He watched the video and was easily able to navigate through the program. He told me about some of the stuff he learned and remembered specific details about the videos. This app is really helpful now that I am beginning to teach my son how to behave with others in anticipation for going to preschool.
