First Nouns

KIS Publishing
Description

KIS First Nouns is a researched based app for teaching the first 500+ nouns to children who need a little extra help or a different method of teaching. The app teaches expressive labelling, receptive labelling, and typing. The technology is based on Visual ABA (a form of behavioral modification) and errorless learning and presents multiple ways of teaching the same subject. There are 9 different levels for learning the object labels, each with a different level of assistance from the app. These techniques are especially effective for teaching children with autism, cerebral palsy, any learning disability or even for typical kids who are struggling to learn using traditional methods.

First Nouns is not only the foundation for creating an environment where the child learns to communicate, but is also the foundation for teaching the objects needed to learn elementary math. The app builds vocabulary for other programs such as building sentences and reading comprehension

The ultimate goal of the First Nouns app is to teach the child utilizing our proprietary techniques to memorize the labels for each object and to finally type them independently from memory. To achieve this, the app is divided into 9 levels.

Levels

Level 1 is picture to picture matching where the child is expected to drag an object to the matching object directly above it. The object label is introduced at the same time, so the child gets accustomed to seeing the object label.

Level 2 is picture to picture matching where the objects are arranged randomly. The child build on the matching skills developed in Level 1

Level 3 is word to picture matching where the child is expected to drag the word to the matching object directly above it. The object label is still shown below the object as an additional prompt.

Level 4 is word to picture matching where the word are arranged randomly but the object label is still given as a prompt.

Level 5 is word to picture matching where the words are arranged randomly and there is no object label prompt.

Level 6 is typing practice where the object label is given as a prompt and the keyboard also gives a visual prompt. The keyboard is restricted to only accept the correct input.

Level 7 is typing practice where the object label is given as a prompt and only the correct key on the keyboard is active.

Level 8 is typing practice where only the correct key on the keyboard is active. There is no visual prompt of the object label at this level.

Level 9 is typing practice with a fully active keyboard with no visual prompts.
