ADHD Treatment

ADHD Treatment

ADHD Treatment by Eytan Shleizer is designed for children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). This app is all about waiting until the right moment. On Level 1, a green square appears and you have to wait for it to change colors before you press the button with a checkmark. If you wait until it changes the red, you can continue with the game. The square will continue to change colors until you have clicked the checkmark ten times. Then, on Level 2, the game changes slightly and you have to wait until the shape changes location on the screen. On Level 3, you click the checkmark every time any change occurs. The shape, color, or location can change, or any combination of the three. On Level 4, you tap the checkmark every time a change occurs, except for when it is red. There are more levels but I haven’t gotten to them yet! It costs $9.99 to download and there are no in-app purchases. It is compatible with the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), iPod touch (5th generation), and iPad.

Feel Electric!

Feel Electric!

This app has three vocabulary games, a mood dude that can be customized to mirror your child’s mood, and contains fifty emotion vocabulary terms. This app is for children who are on the high functioning end of the Autism spectrum. It is free to download and there are no in-app purchases. It is compatible with the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), iPod touch (5th generation), and iPad.

Touch and Learn – Emotions

Touch and Learn - Emotions

Touch and Learn – Emotions by Innovative Mobile Apps teaches your child how to associate a facial expression with the matching emotion. You see four pictures on the screen as a voice says an emotion. You simply touch the correct expression. Then four new pictures appear and the voice says another emotion. If you choose the wrong image, it makes a small ding. There is no limit to the number of times you can get it wrong. It doesn’t go to the next question until you get the answer right. This app does emotions such as: celebrating, bored, mad, frustrated, curious, happy, upset, focused, worried, unhappy, and silly. I will say this about this app, sometimes, even for me, it is very hard to choose a correct answer. It is free to download and there are no in-app purchases. It is compatible with the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch.
