Hidden Curriculum for Kids
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Some people seem to learn the hidden curriculum almost automatically. Others learn it only by direct instruction. This includes children with autism spectrum disorders. These real-life based entries spur conversations about the countless “unwritten social rules” that we encounter every day and that can cause confusion and anxiety.
This app explains information that most people know without being taught. Although this was designed for individuals with learning disabilities, autism spectrum disorders or those who have challenges picking up information from their environment, it is excellent for people from other countries. I am from Turkey and have newly arrived in the United States. This app explains information that I need to know that people do not think to tell me about. EXCELLENT!!!
Well worth it!
This is a wonderful resource for social behavior. When we have some down time (like waiting for our food to arrive)I read a "lesson" out loud to my son and we discuss why something is or is not appropriate. It's good food for thought, very relevant.
Hidden Curriculum On The Go for Kids has been great for my family. The HC items are great conversation-starters and are perfect for setting the tone for our day. We discuss them on our way to school. Anyone with kids--on the spectrum or not--will love this app.
