Somantics is a suite of applications that use touch, gesture and camera input to encourage, capture and amplify the interests of young people with Autistic Spectrum Conditions and other related communication difficulties. The overarching goal of Somantics is promote greater self-awareness, confidence and independence. Important information for users - in order to return to the interface the < symbol at the bottom left of the screen must be held down for at least 3 seconds. This is to make interaction distinct from the free form touch exploration of Somantics. Somantics was funded through the Technology Strategy Board (Making Waves) and Cardiff Metropolitan University.
Updated to be compatible with iOS 8 and retina display iPads.
Ratings and Reviews
Excellent SEN app.
This is a superb application for use with ASD and SEN pupils. As the ICT coordinator for a large special school I've been waiting for this to come out for a while, I used it in class on Friday and straight away the pupils are showing a keen interest. Very highly recommended.
Just because it's free doesn't mean it isn't any good, it's the full version and has been very carefully developed to serve it's purpose.
Also get the Reactickles app.
This will be ideal in my sen lessons. It's gorgeous! More please!
