Description

Visual Cue - A whole new approach using previously popular visual tools with data driven progress reports.

From now on, you will have more insight and feeling of progress just by more using Visual Cue app.

This is the most advanced and a brand new way to give a visual cue for communication with non-verbal children and/or visual thinkers!!!

Data driven evidence based intervention

We think the most important aspect about intervention of autism and any spectrum in autism is progress and how to measure the progress. So, we introduce a whole new Visual Cue for data driven and evidence based intervention. It still has its all previous great features with added new feature for data collection

Who is a visual thinker?
Research by Child Development Theorist suggests that less than 30% of the population strongly uses visual/spatial thinking, another 45% uses both visual/spatial thinking and thinking in the form of words, and 25% thinks exclusively in words. - Wikipedia

Why is it sometimes so hard to get kids to follow a verbal direction?
It might be because they are visual thinkers. They can get more information through a picture than a few words.

So, we are proudly providing five useful tools for them to communicate through pictures, it is a combination of multiple tools as follows and keep growing:

• Visual Scheduler: a guide map for visual thinkers
Not enough with a couple of pictures? You can make a story line of what to do or what’s going on in the next couple of hours or even for days. Create a series of activities for your kids to make it clear what to expect next in a structured way.

• Working For: more cues coming
It is a simple two-part board that communicates to children what they are doing now and what they will be doing next. The board is effective in letting children know what to expect without overwhelming them with a number of activities.

• Touch Choice: a very flexible choice board
You can make more than 4 items on choice board featured by smooth arrangement with numbers for counting item. For example, you can create a glossary shopping list with visible item with number to purchase, working activity with time, and so on.

* Visual Cue: prompt using pictures
Show the picture of destination rather than repeatedly saying “We are going to go to the school.” Their concern might be coming from uncertainty of where they are going. “Visual Cue” supports playing a recorded sound of the destination as well.

* First ~ Then: simple cause and result
Let them know what’s going to happen after they accomplish one thing using a sequential picture though “First ~ Then.” You can show the first image as a condition to have the second one. For example, show picture of wash hands at first then show their favorite snack. It makes them understand clearly what they need to do for the compensation as a contingency.

• Tokens: It's a token rewarding system merged previous two features
called Count Up and Down.
Do you want to encourage a good behavior by visual cue framework? You can add a star by tapping and give an interesting reward when predefined number of stars has reached.

• Visual Timer: Progressive image with timer with better look and performance.

- Technical Support: We value your feedback, so please contact us for any issue.

Ratings and Reviews

Could be improved

Pleased but no sound

I like this app for the most part as I am an individual with Asperger's syndrome. I do well with visual schedules and visual prompts. I love the count up feature. It motivates me to do my chores so I can buy things I want without just going on spending sprees. I also like the visual schedule and being able to check things off when I'm done. However, there are some drawbacks. If you close out the app, the count up feature erases the stars you've already put on the picture. You have to put them back on there. Also, if you go back to the home page from the visual schedule feature and reopen it, it goes back to the beginning of your schedule. You have to recheck your events you've already checked off. Other than that, I like this app. They just need to fix some things.

Latest Update Bad!!

Judy9555

I use this app a lot for my child with special needs, and I loved it until this latest update. I have added many pictures to this app. Now when I use the "Visual Scheduler", my pictures no longer fill up the iPad screen like they use to. They are displayed as very small squares, 3/4" x 3/4". You can hardly see them! Also when using the other tools, although my pictures are the normal size, they are very blurry, as if they have been enlarged too much. I cannot use this app as it is. I'm very disappointed. I've added a lot of pictures to this app and made many different schedules and now I can't use it. Please fix this as soon as possible!

Voice records fine, but using the recordings in app fail

Nana Teaken

In the image library all the images voice recordings are correct. So i know they were recorded well. However, when I click the images in the visual scheduler the recordings are echoing and have a scary warped voice. Please help! I really like that you can download your own images & your own voice with them, I just wish the voice part would work properly.
