A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
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.
Products & Purchases
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.
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.
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.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
