If you're looking for a basic tool to help your kid with communication and life skills, QuickCues may be able to help by providing specific information and scripts that kids can access when needed. It's important to know that the app is most useful when used with another person and that in-app purchases are required to get the four other content areas. For kids who are reluctant readers, this app may be difficult because it's text-heavy, and there's no text-to-speech feature.

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.
