Put It Away is an iPad app that helps teach kids how to tidy up and clean up a room! For example, in a kitchen, bowls and plates need to be placed in the sink, the milk has to go in the refrigerator, and garbage belongs in the waste basket.
Cleaning a room is an essential living skill for everyone, but can be particularly difficult for children with special needs. Performing this task on the app exercises category sorting and memory, and can help build confidence in kids with autism or other developmental disabilities to complete the task in real life, which is often a challenge.
A key feature of the app is customization. Parents and teachers can configure where each item in the room needs to go. New items and new scenes can also be created from the Photo library or Camera (if supported).
Customization enables parents and teachers to use the app to simulate their real living space and classroom in which the kids are situated in!
Model Me Going Places™ is a great visual teaching tool for helping your child learn to navigate challenging locations in the community. Each location contains a photo slideshow of children modeling appropriate behavior.
