Social Stories!

Make fun stories for your kids about going on a trip, riding in a car, anything at ALL!

Scene Speak provides a framework on the iPad to create Visual Scene Displays and social stories. This application allows an image to be edited with multiple, different sized sound areas, pop-up text and text to an image.  In addition, a scene can be linked from one scene to another via a "hotspot". Images then can added into “books” by theme or area of interest.  



Scene Speak is a great tool for creating interactive social stories and for use as a communication tool for those with Autism, Aphasia, Apraxia, developmental disabilities or anyone wanting to enhance receptive language or visual memory. 

I found this app easy to use and was able to make 2 early learning books in about 30 minutes. I made a first words book and located all of the images from Google and was able to download them right into a Visual Scene Display to add to my book.

Andrea H is looking forward to making a social story about how we wear coats in the fall/winter, since her daughter hates wearing coats. Here is to hoping that it helps.
