A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Educational Value

Kids can learn how to categorize words to answer what, when, where, and who questions. The app offers multi-level support as well as picture symbols to maximize learning. It's expensive compared to many apps, but for kids who really struggle with language and answering these questions QuestionIt is a good app for the money.​

Ease of Play

QuestionIt is meant to be a cooperative activity between a parent, a teacher, or a speech therapist and a child. The directions and information are clear, and everything else is user-friendly and simple to figure out.

Violence & Scariness
Sexy Stuff
Language
Consumerism

The lite version has a small button on the opening screen that says "buy full app." When selected, it takes you to the App Store.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that QuestionIt is a quality educational app designed to help people with autism and language issues develop and strengthen concepts of language. It provides experience in sorting and answering "wh…" questions by systematically teaching which types of words answer which types of questions. It reinforces with a built-in, color-coded cueing system that can be faded as skills improve. QuestionIt includes a data manager to record the types of questions and percentage correct for each one. The content and vocabulary are good but not always motivating. It's notable in providing errorless questions, wherein only one answer is accepted and kids are moved on to the next question. It reinforces kids with intermittent fireworks.

What's it about?

Kids sort words by the types of questions they answer and increase their skill level until they're answering questions about a paragraph. The words, sentences, and pictures have symbols to help non-readers. There are levels of color-coded cueing to help identify the correct answer. Progress data is collected, and reinforcements are given intermittently with fireworks.

Is it any good?

QUESTIONIT is a good educational language app that is specifically designed to help people with language deficits to categorize and answer who, what, when, and where questions. The data it collects is specific and helps a parent, teacher, or speech therapist to identify areas of difficulties, and the color-coded cueing system is a model of best practice for teaching kids using augmentative and alternative communication systems. The price is expensive, but the free lite version allows you to try it before buying it.
