Token Board is a customizable app to motivate children to learn and complete tasks. It is a visual reward system for children with special needs and children of all ages and abilities. A token economy is a system of behavior modification based on the systematic reinforcement of target behaviors. The reinforcers are symbols or "tokens" that can be exchanged for rewards. Rewards are given after a number of tokens are earned. A token economy is based on the principles of operant conditioning and is used in applied behavior analysis (ABA) with children with autism spectrum disorders.
The app provides the children with visual information about when they can earn their reward using a set number of earned tokens.
A Token Board consists of:
- A Reward image showing what the child is working for.
- Token Images showing the progress towards earning the reward.
- An optional Sound which plays when the child earns a token.
- Create a list of names for the children using the app and save their favorite tokens, rewards, and sounds.
- Version 2.0 allows you to save favorite Token Images, Reward Images and Sounds for every child in the list.
- Token and Reward Images come preloaded with a set of child friendly images.
- Token Sounds come preloaded with a set of child friendly encouraging sounds.
- Take photos from within the app or import your favorite Token and Reward images from your Camera Roll.
- Record your own sound from within the app.
- The app contains an Image Editor to allow you to customize the look of your own Token and Reward Images. The editor lets you combine photos, text, hand drawings and fun stickers to create a custom image to use in the Token Board.
- Save your progress and come back to a board in a later session, to assign more tokens.
- The app is used by over 50,000 parents and therapists.
- Added the ability to save Token Board progress. Now, assigned tokens are saved when they are assigned. The user can come back and assign tokens in later sessions.

Ratings and Reviews
I absolutely love the idea of this app! I am just beyond frustrated that it claims that I can add my own pictures and sounds but that this feature isn’t working. I really hope that this can be fixed soon! I am still usually this app in the meantime with the available pictures and sounds.
Downloaded this today and even paid for it, yet it keeps crashing!
Developer Response ,
We are so sorry. We just submitted a new version fixing all of the errors in the last release. It will be up in a day or two. Thanks for your patience.
The best Token Economy app
I am a parent of a child on the autism spectrum. My child has been using token economy with his ABA therapists since he was two years old. We used to spend hours printing and cutting out pictures of the things he was interested in at the time. This app is the answer to parents like me and all ABA providers. It lets you use the built in Token and Reward images and sounds, or you can create or record you own. AWESOME!!
Now I can easily take a photo of the reward he is interested in, and I can add text and hand drawing to it and use it in the app to motivate him to learn and do his work. So easy!!!
I love this app! It has simplified the process of my daily Token economy and made it fun!
