Dr. Gary Brown’s Autism/DTT Shapes App uses Discrete Trial Training (DTT) to help your child learn the basic shapes. DTT is the primary teaching method used in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) to help teach children with autism. See the video review of Autism Shapes on the Apps 4 Children with Special Needs site!
This app has a setup screen that allows you to enter the basic parameters such as correct and incorrect colors, timing settings and number and type of cards to display. After you select the basic settings and press start, the app simply displays multiple shape cards on the screen and verbally announces to your child the name of the correct shape that should be touched. After your child has touched a shape, the app gives positive verbal feedback to your child, letting them know if they pressed the correct or incorrect shape. After ten questions/trials the app will display the number of correct answers received, and it will also write a log entry so that these results can be reviewed later.
