A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Kids can learn appropriate social responses to many scenarios within 16 common environments, including the classroom, kitchen, bathroom, and movie theater. From the safety of the game, kids can try out possible responses to a wide variety of situations without fear of consequences. Social Quest provides direct practice with social problem solving for kids who will feel comfortable in the context of the game and can transfer what they learn to real life with adult support.
Ease of Play

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Social Quest is a language tool for kids with expressive and receptive language deficits to practice how to respond in common social situations. Kids will practice understanding multiple perspectives in one of 16 preloaded environments. An adult will need to help set it up, and it's likely that some activities will need to be completed with the help of a therapist or parent to identify appropriate social problem solving. Social Quest will record long-term and short-term data as kids practice pragmatic situations.
Is It Any Good?
There are many scenarios surrounding 16 environments that kids might encounter, and instant feedback and long-term rewards help reinforce social problem-solving. The scenarios and responses are realistic, engaging, and helpful for kids who need straightforward social language practice. For some kids, the graphics-heavy interface might be distracting, so those kids might need more guidance to stay on task.
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.
