If you’re anything like me, you’re always looking for quality apps for social skills! They can be TOUGH to find!
Enter in the fabulous “Let’s Be Social” app. According to the app, it models and teaches solving problems, forming friendships, recognizing emotions, and predicting outcomes. Everything in the app was created by SLPs which is fantastic! Additionally, the app makes it super easy to create your own custom content to fit the needs of any pragmatic kiddo on your caseload!
The app is organized incredibly well for how much material it contains. It has the following categories:
In each “story” shown above, there is a short story and then an interactive quiz/lesson afterwards:
As stated above, you can also create your own categories and your own stories (either in your category or one of theirs). Check out how easy it to to do below:
-Very kid friendly language
-Good selection of stories
-Very easy to customize (can even use your own pictures!)
-Covers material I didn’t have an iPad app for prior
-Good use of graphics (not too much, not too little)
-Intuitive, easy to use layout
-The stories themselves might be a little long/hard to remember for some kids. (see the example above to see typical length)
-Currently no data tracking if that matters to you!
-No visuals for the answer choices
At the time of this review (01/16/14) the app was $14.99 in the App Store! Definitely worth it! Check it out here.
