iTherapy-Building a Foundation for Language and Learning

Cindy is an extremely active 8 year old. It is challenging for her to focus on any activity for more than 30 seconds. Most of her day is spent galloping, climbing, running and seeking sensory input, because of this, traditional therapies have had limited if any success.

Technology’s inherent interactive capabilities is one of the reasons Cindy today can sit for up to 40 minutes focused and engaged on a variety of therapeutic Apps. This has allowed us to compile a group of Apps that are designed to build pre-language skills and a strong foundation for learning. Cindy has learned to navigate cause and effect Apps, attempts to use words and sing with programs like VAST Autism and VAST Songs 1. She has also increased her spontaneous sharing experience with others.

We are excited for the possibilities the future holds for Cindy.
