A BuZoo Story is available for Android phones and tablets. At $15 it is a little pricey, but is rated highly and focuses on developing such skills as communication, social skills, functional skills and language. It is also very interactive, and simple to use, especially in the touch-free mode. Children simply wave at the camera and easily help each animal board the bus while learning the animal’s name, how to spell it, and interact with each animal.

A BuZoo Story is an interactive app for the Android market that is targeted for students with autism and other motor-skills needs. The point of the game is to get students to help board the animals on the bus, but to do so, they must wave at the camera at certain points to guide the animals onto the bus. Not only will this work on their motor skills, but they will also learn to recognize the animals names, learn how to spell the names of the animals, interact with the animals, hear their noises and find out basic information on each animal.

The app costs $4.99, but is well worth the cost. It works for students who have shaky or unstable hands, so there is no need of a steady hand. The application also reads aloud what ever is written on the screen, and can be slowed down or repeated if students did not hear what was said the first time, or if they need pronounce it slowly. Overall, this is a pretty solid app for students from Pre-K through 3rd grade.

Helpful Technology | Autism Spectrum Disorder

When helping a child/person learn in a classroom, “Goals for intervention should include a strong focus on communication. Children who do not yet produce spoken words can be helped to be more communicative with various means” (Volkmar & Pauls, 2003, para. 35) “The growing adoption of handheld media devices along with applications acquired via aconsumer-oriented delivery model suggests a potential paradigm shift in [augmentative and alternative communication] for people with ASD” (Shane, H. C. et al., 2012, para. 1) Because of this modern approach, persons of all ages with ASD are able to learn (including but not limited to communication) more effectively without feeling like they have to sit frustrated in a classroom to do so.
