Spin and Speak: Social Skills app is an entertaining board game designed to help teach the pragmatics of language. The app focuses on the following areas: instrumental (requesting things, asking for help), regulatory (directing others), interactional (exchanging information), personal (maintaining contact, interests), heuristic (discovery, making choices), imaginative (creative imagery) and informative (statements of fact, storytelling). You can set up each student and track their performance using our data tracking. You can email the data at any time during or after the game. Before each game, you can choose one or all of these areas for each student.
As the student plays the game, flashcards will pop up asking questions or giving scenarios for them to address. Data can be collected as the game progresses and a report can be generated to show progress. This game is a great tool for all children needing help with simple conversations and can especially be used with students using augmentative communication devices.

Data and Instructions
You cannot seem to access the data and scores after you exit out of a game and then when you go to check information in the instructions they are all cut off.
Can't play...closes every time I try
I' m not sure what is going on... I was able to play this fine several months ago. Perhaps the latest OS is not compatible. Every time I go to set up 2 players to play, it closes. Also if I try to delete a player it closes. Boo! Please fix!!!!
Initial try not so good
I was supposed to allow 5 kids to play, had 3, only 2 showed up even after repeated tries. Kids were really flexible thinkers about this! Downloaded again we shall see.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
