All tasks can and should be bolstered by a timer and rewards section until your child no longer needs them to complete a task.

Your child will learn to achieve their goals by finishing tasks, learning that anything is achievable when it's broken down into small achievable steps. This bolsters their confidence and resolve to try again next time with even more success.

Breaking a task into smaller achievable steps is easy with ASD Tools, just use the camera to add the images to your library then use them straight away. Don't forget to reward them for a job well done and they will keep coming back for more.

ASD Tools has a comprehensive image library for you to use but you can easily swap the illustrations with your own photos. Any item can have it's category, name and imaged changed or deleted if you wish.

The image library also has categories for grouping similar images together PLUS a search function to help you locate the image you need quickly.

After many requests to expand the visual schedule and to add a save function for 123 Steps and First Then sections we have expanded 123 Steps from 3 steps to unlimited steps as an optional in app purchase and another allowing you to save any and all routines/schedules/first then/diaries you create. From the feedback we've received, these two optional in app purchases are worth their weight in gold for the savings they have given our users in cost savings of size of purchasing other apps, time spent creating routines, time and frustration saved in preparing schedules/diaries/task breakdowns/routines ahead of time.

False advertising

The price on the screen is wrong. That's how much it costs to download, but to use it the cost more than doubles.
It's also not particularly user friendly.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your feedback. Apps are very expensive to make but I understand your disappointment at not being able to download any app you like for free.

ASD TOOLS (without in app purchases) is less than one cup of coffee. With both in apps that equates to only two cups of coffee and gives you four valuable tools in one handy app.

To have the same functionality you will need to buy multiple apps. ASD TOOLS gives you four tools without the haste of swapping and buying multiple apps.

We love a challenge so have taken this opportunity to search for apps that will give you all the same functionality as those we deliver in ASD TOOLS at a cheaper price.

You will be happy to know ASD TOOLS is still half the price of our competitors.

With or without in-apps, ASD Tools is still the best option for these four tools.

Worst App ever

This is a shocking app aimed a ripping of parents with ASD children, shame on you.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the feedback. As mentioned in the app description this app will help with scheduling and breaking tasks into small achievable steps. It has been developed very closely with therapists, teachers and special needs specialists. It is a tool to help your child improve and learn with positive reinforcement and this app achieves these needs to the satisfaction of specialists and teachers alike. If you feel buying an app will cure your child’s autism I’m sorry but no app in the world can do that. You need to seek guidance and input from your doctor and paediatric specialist to under take early intervention (which this app links directly into and supports).

A great find!

This app is very straight forward and clear. Perfect for little kids to understand the tasks expected of them. It also has a reward system for completing the list and tasks, which is great. It's bright and cheery and the images are easily identifiable.

My favourite is the camera function. Although there is a useful library, you can create your own, by taking photos and naming the images. This way your child has no excuses for not understanding the lists and tasks that are created because the images are familiar to them.

The timer is a pretty cool concept also. Unlike other timers I have previously used, you can attach an image of the task/activity you want to be timed. Then you can count up or down. I'll be using it regularly to control computer and gadget use.

I can see this app being useful for more than just difficult kids. I think it's a great tool for kids in general, but I see great potential for kids with learning difficulties as well. Well worth a look.
