App Store - uTrack Lite - 0 views

  • The concept is simple. You have a virtual ‘wall’ where you can put up sticky notes with your to do's. Once you decide to start the task, simply drag the sticky note from the ‘to do’ column to ‘in progress’. Move the task to the 'verify' column should you feel the need to revisit it after completion. Once the task is finally completed drag it to the ‘done’ column. At any point in time, you could delete tasks or clean your wall completely. The application also allows you to take snapshots at any given instance and send it via email.

      Your Therapy Source told me about the Free app FitQuest Lite by JogHop, so I downloaded it and then tried to figure out when I would use it. It actually worked great for 2 kiddos that I work with that are completely different in terms of presentation. One of the kiddos has Developmental Coordination Disorder and we work a lot on timing of movement that is self generated, that is cued, that is reactionary to something happening to the environment as well as the coordination of that movement. The other kiddo has spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy and we spend a lot of time working on bilateral hand use, standing balance, anticipatory balance control and reaction time. By using this app I was able to work on all of these things. They get the visual cues of the squirrel running down a path (whose movement is generated by the kiddo's movement) and then have to react to the obstacles that come along the way. This can include jumping over a snake or ducking to get away from an eagle. In addition to the visual cues I have been able to vocally tell them when to jump or duck or whatever the task is requiring. As they practice, they get the repetition and are able to anticipate when to move to get the desired result and time the motion so that they make it over the snake. As they progress, they need fewer and fewer verbal cues. Their timing and reactions improve as well as their anticipatory reactions where they can plan a movement, and their body knows what it needs to do in order to maintain their balance for that action. For my kiddo that has spastic quadriplegia CP, we didn't do the leg motions as much but used the bilateral hand use to generate the movement. He was able to make it jump by lifting the phone up, and duck by bringing the phone down. The squirrel was able to move down the path by his shaking his arms slightly. It was a great balance tool and really helped his bilateral hand use. All in all this is a great free app that can develop on anticipatory r

Work System (Autism) for iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod touch (3rd generation), ... - 0 views

  • A work system is a strategy that addresses independence as an essential outcome for students with ASD. A work system, an element of structured teaching, is defined by Division TEACCH as a systematic and organized presentation of tasks and materials that visually communicates at least four pieces of information to the student (Schopler, Mesibov, & Hearsey, 1995):1. The tasks/steps the student is supposed to do. 2. What is the nature of the task? 3. How many tasks/steps there are to be completed. 4. How the student knows he/she is finished.
  • While a picture schedule directs a student WHERE TO GO, a work system instructs a student on WHAT TO DO once they arrive in the scheduled area.
