About Autism Hangout FEATURE PROGRAMS:

 

FEATURE PROGRAMS are a series of ongoing, continually updated, autism topics (i.e. "Key Learnings," "Beyond the Headlines", "Moving Out" or Featured Guests).

 

They are prepared by Autism Hangout Staff Reporters. We’ll keep on top of trends in the news as well as Autism Hangout’s Discussion Forums so you can quickly find the latest, current thinking on the topics and challenges that we face daily.

 

All Feature Programs have links to threads in the Discussion Forum (if you'd care to share your experience or insights with others).

"Off We Go!" Meet Author/app developer, Avril Webster


"Improving the quality of life of all children... promoting inclusion of everyone in day to day activities."


This is the Mission Statement found at the "Off We Go!" website. "Off We Go!" books (and now apps) prepare children for everyday experiences and improve language and social skills. They also encourage kids to take part in activities that they might otherwise find overwhelming.


Meet the author/developer of the "Off We Go" book and apps series, Avril Webster.

"Language Builder" - The 4th of Kyle Tomson's Apps for Autism "Builder" series.

Kyle Tomson is nothing short of amazing. He's got a day job... and a child on the spectrum. In his spare hours, he has developed "Sentence Builder, Question Builder" and "Story Builder" to aid her learning. The Apps have worked so well, Kyle put them in iTunes/the Apple Store. Today, parents worldwide are sharing the benefits of Kyle's Apps. But he didn't stop there. In this interview, Kyle talks about his latest App for Autism, Language Builder. Language Builder functions as the rest of the Builder series and in this case, helps kids develop expressive language and construct sentences for meaningful conversation. Thanks, Kyle!
