Based on the top-selling Language Builder Picture Cards for Autism Education
This free version offers full use of 2 of the 6 activities available on the Language Builder Basic version and Language Builder Pro version of the App. The Language Builder Free version gives parents, therapists and teachers a chance to try out the Language Builder App using the Identical Matching and Similar Matching activities.
Identical Matching: The Identical Matching activity teaches students to match identical pictures of familiar objects. This is generally one of the first drills taught in an ABA or DTT program; and this is where we suggest starting with a child who is new to the Language Builder App. Even students whose academic skills are more advanced, may benefit from learning to work on the iPad on a simpler activity where they have a high opportunity for success.
Similar Matching: The Similar Matching activity teaches students to match pictures which portray the same word, but with a different image. This drill helps students to generalize from the therapeutic setting to a more realistic environment. Students will see that apples can be red or yellow, whole or cut, but are still apples! Because each of the 15 Basic Stage Words come with 6 similar images, there are plenty of chances for practice.
Highly customizable settings allow you to choose from multiple speech and text commands, card positions, prompts and prompt fading, target and distractor words, reinforcers, and more.
Language Builder from Stages lets you create unlimited student accounts, save settings and lessons for students, and generate detailed reports to track student progress.
This is an excellent tool for any home, school or clinic based autism education program. Now with an available FREE version, you will be able to try before you buy.
