SŌSH covers a broad spectrum of social skills. Many sensory or self-regulation strategies used with students with autism are included, such as a voice meter, deep breathing, and music to calm. Used on a mobile device such as an iPod, iPhone, or iPad, these tools can be readily available to kids anywhere. The activities provide a clear visual and auditory presentation. This is a great app for high-functioning kids with autism or Asperger’s to work on self-regulation and social skills towards the goal of independent application of these strategies.

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.
