Autism iHelp is a vocabulary teaching aid developed by parents of a child with Autism and a speech-language pathologist. Autism iHelp was inspired by the need for specific language intervention tools for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder focusing on their unique strengths and difficulty with expressive vocabulary.
Autism iHelp is an invaluable tool for your child with Autism when those first words just don’t come. The colorful real-life photos are presented in an easy-to-label format.
This app includes 72 real world photos; it has been proven that children with Autism respond best to photos as opposed to illustrations and are very visual learners.
This app also includes two Learning Enhancement activities. These learning activities are presented in a game-like format. These games check retention of the learned vocabulary and integrate auditory and visual memory. Additionally, you are able to track your child's gains through progress reports that average the last 3 performances of each learning enhancement activity.
Autism iHelp colors is extremely unique when compared to any other first word learning apps. This app includes groups of pictures categorized by specific color. This app helps to distinguish and identify common items by color and allows for increased environmental generalization. This helps the child with Autism to recognize that boundaries in regards to categorization are not exclusive. Fortunately, the pictures for groups 'red' and 'yellow' are free of charge.

I want my money back
Terrible app if you pay for it--and the free version doesn't have receptive identification. The doesn't work. There are no reinforcers. This should be free. Worst autism app I've bought.
I enjoyed using this application and trying out all of the available features. The one thing I disliked was the inability to return to the home page once an activity was started. I either had to finish the game or close and reopen the app. I like the feature that allows you to keep track of an average score! I would recommend this app to others, and hopefully adding a return home button within the game is an update the developers would consider.
LOVE this app!!!!
I love this app. The groups of colors are wonderful!! I use it with the kiddos I work with who have language issues, but this would be great for typically-developing preschool kids too. I think it is good for kids with Autism though because the many choices and real photos help with generalization.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
