ConversationBuilderDeluxe™ (Pat. Pend.) is designed to help elementary aged children learn how to have multi-exchange conversations with their peers in a variety of social settings. The content for ConversationBuilderDeluxe™ is identical to the IAP's of the award winning ConversationBuilder™, but in a stand alone app.

Being able to converse with peers is the cornerstone of developing relationships, and ConversationBuilder™ promotes development of this skill that so many elementary aged children struggle with in a fun and engaging way.

Ratings and Reviews
Very helpful and engaging
This app is perfect for teaching kids with ASD how to appropriately initiate a conversation as well as join one in progress. The app has a clear, simple presentation without any distracting movement or sound which is perfect for kids on the spectrum who could be easily overstimulated. With many different conversations in several subjects, this app gives a lot of opportunity for practice. The ability to record and replay the conversations allow for follow up instruction by the parent/teacher/therapist and the kids really seem to enjoy hearing themselves in conversations.
Needs more explanation
I love the concept of this app because I have a son with autism and he can tend to say things off topic and not keep a conversation going. However, the "right" answers aren't very obvious (which, in theory, could help someone figure out the nuances of conversations) but it does nothing to teach the child as to why certain choices are better. It just asks you to select a better choice and my son will quickly click on all choices to get the right one without really understanding it. For the price it should have more teaching to it.
This app has really helped my child with (hearing loss) establish and build conversations. I noticed a difference right away. It is very interactive and allows the chld to participate in a mock conversation and then replay the conversation hearing her own voice! Awesome! I only wish there were games built in to encourage longer use of the app. It's very useful, but quite booring from a child's point of view.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
