Recently added to the UKEdChat Apple EduApps page is FindMe, an app designed to support nonverbal autistic children. The app has been developed by a team of psychologists at the University of Edinburgh and aims to help young children with autism practice simple social skills.

Speaking to Wired.co.uk, researchers found that all children that used the iPad learnt new words and some produced sentences. “For some parents, it was the first time they’d been able to converse with their children. With the onset of iPads, that kind of communication may become possible for greater numbers of children with autism and their families,” said Ann Kaiser, a professor at Vanderbilt Peabody College of Education and Human Development.

The app is also available free (click here), but the full version is priced UK£7.99*, and is available by clicking the App Store image below

About Paul Champion

Some have called me a leader, and a entrepreneur, they say I have integrity, presence and skills to ensure continuous improvement and success in whatever challenges I face. They also tell me that I am positive, resilient and motivating. I say, I'm just a normaI guy from Gateshead in the North of England, who started as an apprentice engineer. I have been in the right place at the right time and in the wrong place at the wrong time! I have successfully initiated and led complex organizations and situations to completion and success, and I have been in some jobs where success seemed untouchable. Mainly though, I have tried to learn everyday, help people to progress and learn the skills they need to be successful. I have had the privilege of working with some great people locally across the UK and more recently internationally in Asia, Europe and now USA, where I am lucky enough to work for www.3aaa.co.uk where I am head of 3aaa USA. This website is just me having an outlet to talk about all those thoughts, ideas and things I learn that pass through my head every day when I face the challenge of doing business. I will also rant on about how great apprenticeships are, and how you can help change peoples lives through them. After all thats how I got to do the great things that I have done, and also I am still an apprentice everyday! All I ask is that if you find it interesting then leave a comment and share what you read. THANK YOU.
