----------KEY VISUAL SUPPORTS--------------

AutisMate’s Smart ScenesTM are comprehensive Visual Scene Displays (VSDs) that are fully customizable and allow you to upload your own videos, audio and images, or take a picture or video using your iPad! With AutisMate's visual scenes, you can combine video modeling, visual schedules and visual stories to provide a powerful visual environment to facilitate independence, daily living / self-care skills and communication.

AutisMate provides you with a fully featured sentence builder that includes over 12,000 SymbolStix symbols and two core vocabularies that are totally customizable. The grid is also customizable to meet the needs of your learner, including increasing or decreasing the size and number of symbols on the screen and assigning your own image to a word.

AutisMate now provides you with a powerful predictive keyboard that utilizes word-prediction as you type. The predictive keyboard provides Text-To-Speech capabilities and symbol support that pair the appropriate symbol with the predicted word.

Research has been shown that video modeling can be used to increase skills in play, behavior, communication, self-care and vocation. Within AutisMate you can create powerful video modeling that allows users to develop functional skills and appropriate behavior for real life day-to-day situations to help your user learn life skills, reinforce positive behavior and build independence.

Visual schedules are a great way to provide visual cues for daily activities. AutisMate's dynamic visual schedules allow you to incorporate images, videos, visual times and stories into each schedule to help your user learn and complete life skills and routines more independently!

Visual stories are a great way to teach communication, life skills, behavioral skills and social skills! With AutisMate's visual stories, you can use images from your learner's environment to increase familiarity and make the story easier to understand.

We have hundreds (and growing) of pre-made scenes, schedules, videos and stories to help you plug and play content, saving you time.

You can take advantage of the built-in GPS capabilities to set your scenes in the app to relevant locations including home, school, work or in the community.

With AutisMate, you can easily share scenes, schedules, videos and stories through iTunes and email with ease!
