This easy-to-use iPad app helps students with autism and other disabilities develop strategies for regulating their emotions and managing their own behavior challenges. A great way to keep students in the classroom for intervention and minimize lost learning time.
With the iPad-based KidConnect™, designed by a special educator and a school psychologist, it’s easy to provide instant, specific interventions that help students with autism and other behavior issues solve their problems and improve emotional regulation.
KidConnect is easy to set up: you’ll create a student record, including classes, typical behaviors, and preferred rewards. Then, immediately following an undesired behavior, give the student access to the app. They enter some basic information about what happened and why,
and KidConnect delivers customized strategies (e.g., get a drink of water, squeeze a fidget toy, take a short break). Independently or with adult guidance, the student can try the strategies, and then return to their activity having managed the behavior and learned helpful coping mechanisms they can use in the future. An ideal way to bridge the gap between the therapy room and the classroom, this app is the key to helping students own their behavior challenges and work proactively to solve them.
