2 Apps that Make Abbey’s Life Better! Here are demos and How we use them with Abbey!

Abbey’s communicating app, Proloquo2Go is her voice.  We still have a long way to go, but it’s so exciting to watch her learn little by little, finding her voice!

Click here for the video demo of Proloquo2Go and how we use it with Abbey!

Then, Pictello taught Abbey to enjoy looking at pictures.  This may seem like it’s not a big deal, but she’s very visual and her enjoying social stories of real pictures of real places and real people doing things that she struggles with, are huge!  She loves to look at her stories on Pictello now and I love that she looks at stories I’ve made of our family trips and about going to the dentist!

This has opened up a whole new world for Abbey! Now, Pictello is even BETTER!

Ok, I’ve posted about Pictello before, how we use this app for social stories, teaching Abbey what to expect, what to do in situations.  So, we’ve got stories about Going to the Dentist, for example.

We also love Pictello because it has opened up a new world for Abbey.  She figured out that she loves to look at pics of herself and her family doing things.  So, I make stories about our trips, about new things she does and experiences, so she can look at it all again!

Well, yes, Pictello just got even better!  Not only is it very simple to use, for myself and for Abbey…but now, YES, you can ADD VIDEOS!!  Wow, to see Abbey’s face, the first time she opened up one of her stories, clicked on a page and it was a video….priceless!  She started off with a huge grin and then was just giddy!  It adds another whole dimension!  So, now to think about ways we can use this new feature to help her learn and grow….

Here’s a pdf, Growing Beans, of one short, simple story I made using Pictello, of us planting bean seeds.  I hope to use it again next year and see what she can do without my help!  The page in the story without words, is actually a video,:)  If you have Pictello, we can share stories!  I can send you a Pictello link of a story that you can put on your Pictello, to look at and use, if you’d like.:)  Just let me know!

Story app, Pictello, helps Abbey learn and grow

Story app, Pictello, helps Abbey learn and grow

We use an app called Pictello to make stories for Abbey using pictures of her, her family and her world. These stories help her to look back on things she enjoyed in the hope she will remember from her experiences, help her learn about things that are hard for her and help her to learn about things she cannot do in a very non-threatening way. She loves them and looks at them almost every day…even the Going to the Dentist one!  This picture is just one page from her story called, “Abbey’s Christmas” which had learning pages like this and pages about things she enjoyed, like candy canes.:)  Abbey’s story about her trip to Disneyland is entered into a contest right now, please vote for her by picking how many stars you would like to give it, http://www.assistiveware.com/disneyland …Thank you!  The contest is a great way to check out all the stories people have entered, you can get some great ideas!  And, Picetllo is on sale, last day is TODAY!
