Reading, even in the digital age, is probably one of the most important skills that children acquire. It can be an important source of pleasure which also develops vital language and social skills. It is fundamental to most school activities, it can also open up new worlds and give access to the wealth of human knowledge.
This app that has been developed by child psychologists and other specialists at The Open University enables young children to take part in fun games which can help develop interests and skills that will be relevant to them when they start to read.

This is such a good idea. What a way to explain events to help children understand real life activities as well as improving reading. 1 downside, it's a shame that the text box cannot be moved. It blocks out some parts of the pictures, that you might want to keep visible.
I downloaded this to help me make short social stories for use with my child who has asd. It's really easy to use and as its on my phone easily accessible wherever we are.
Great app for use with children and it would be even better if the stories could be transferred to a computer so that they could be shared with others.
