The Language Express®, makers of The Social Express®, is honored to announce that the company’s social skills learning program is included in a new book, iPad Apps For Kids For Dummies. John Wiley & Sons, Inc. recently published the new book, authored by Jinny Gudmundsen. Ms. Gudmundsen is also a columnist at USA Today the Kid-Tech column and Editor-in-Chief for Computing With Kids E-zine.
The Social Express, winner of the SIIA Innovation Incubator Award in Ed Tech, is an interactive social skills learning program. The Social Express targets core deficit social skill areas that stand in the way of school and life success for children and young adults with social learning challenges.
For children who have trouble understanding social situations, The Social Express learning program lets them learn by role-playing through 16 interactive lessons. Presented as video vignettes starring four animated kids, the lessons clearly reveal the characters' facial expressions and body language.
According to author Jinny Gudmundsen, “Kids experiment to see what the right behavior is in typical social situations. By interacting with friendly characters that kids can easily relate to, players learn how to start conversations, be a part of a group, look for hidden rules in social situations, make inferences from sequenced situations and more. “
