Special Learning understands the need for interactive and engaging products that enable children to improve their social skills.
Chicago, Illinois (PRWEB) October 25, 2013
Special Learning Inc., the leading global provider of special technology applications and educational resources for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), announced today a special offer on its popular social story app, the Saying Goodbye Social Story. The popular interactive skill-building app can be downloaded for the iPad for free from iTunes or the App Store. This innovative app provides an easy, accessible way of teaching various common rules and social norms to children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other developmental disabilities, thus allowing them to function more effectively in everyday social settings.
“Special Learning understands the need for interactive and engaging products that enable children to improve their social skills,” said Karen Chung, Founder and Chief Executive Officer. “Using an app format that works on commonly used devices allows for children with special needs to blend into their social settings and integrate with peers while still providing easy access to a teaching resource.”
Social stories are short, illustrated books designed to help prepare children to address common situations and teach them how to respond appropriately. Special Learning has brought this idea to life in an app through vivid and colorful illustrations paired with clearly written story lines told from the student’s perspective.
The flip-book pages are easy for any user to navigate with a touch of the screen. The app is also equipped with customizable options that allow the user to choose a voice for narration from four possibilities: boy, girl, man or woman.
The Saying Good Bye Social Story app can be used in conjunction with Special Learning’s Saying Good Bye Social Stories Teaching Kit, which includes a colorful story book, a full instructional guide, and additional teaching tools, making it a perfect learning kit.

Special Learning will be releasing a new social story teaching app in late fall. For more information on other upcoming mobile apps, visit http://www.special-learning.com/comapp2.
