If you haven’t been following my previous blog posts, Go Go Games is a suite of games on the iPad that helps preschool and elementary-aged children to learn to notice multiple features of the objects in the world around them – a specific perceptual skill that is essential to learning and comes naturally to most children, but is known to be a common difficulty for those with ASD. Improvements in this critical ability lead to gains across a broad range of skills. Our mission is to do something bigger than just teach one targeted life skill, and we are very excited by the opportunity to teach something foundational with our games that could improve general learning outcomes for a range of children on the spectrum.
We’ve designed and built three fantasy adventures that feel more like play but work like therapy. Our themes (trucks, trains, and spaceships) reflect the interests of the many children with autism with whom we’ve tested the game, and we are very inspired by the positive responses we’ve received so far:
Go Go Games is available on the iPad for $1.99… but we’re offering a special introductory price of $0.99 through the end of October in the Education Category of the iTunes Store. Be sure to get it now!
