About Autism Core Skills

Autism Core Skills is a comprehensive academic and social skills practice system designed for students with autism. The app employs best educational practices to provide scaffolded learning experiences in math, reading and social skills for autistic students of any age working on preschool through first grade level skills.

Autism Core Skills Review

Autism Core Skills was created to help individuals with Autism reach their full potential. The curriculum teaches early academic, social, and communication skills. I loved the app design. Compared to similar software and applications, Autism Core Skills has a very simple and clean interface. It also sets itself apart with unique features including: custom student profiles that take into account the child’s attention span, ability level, and more. They also use the childs’ interests to create appropriate incentives. This app is available on the iPad which makes it perfect for continuing study on the go, at home, or in the classroom.

Autism Core Skills was created by Infiniteach. They develop Autism solutions that work well across school, home, therapy, and community settings. They have introduced various educational apps with evidence-based Autism interventions.

Features

Autism Core Skills is free to download but you will have to sign up for a membership. This can be done on the Infiniteach website. They do offer free trial memberships as well. When you enter the app and login to your account, you will need to set up custom profiles for each student. The customized profiles are used to prepare individual lesson plans for each child. Within the lessons you will find mathematics, reading, spelling, color concepts, social skills, turn taking, and more.

Lesson Plans

The lessons are easy to access and they do build upon each other. After a students profile is complete, the child can choose “play lessons” from the main menu and it will step the child through the appropriate lessons to complete. If the child or teacher wants to end the session, they will need to finish up the segment of questions and then they will be able to exit using a 4 digit code that is set up by the account holder.

Data

Data is pulled for each student based on their lesson results. This is perfect for tracking a students’ progress on any skill and being able to read it easily using various charts and graphs. You will see data gathered for Communication, Games, Mathematics, and Reading. I was very impressed with the data charts. They were easy to read and understand.

Collaborators

Another great feature available with this app is the ability to add a collaborator to each students profile. As a collaborator, you can access lesson plans, and progress results. You can also play the activities and lessons with the child. This is perfect for a parent, therapist, or aide. I think this might be the best feature in the app because it will keep lessons and goals consistent.

Incentives

The reward videos after each activity are fun and definitely provide a great incentive for the child. My son loved the sports incentives available. The background of each lesson plan is also coordinated with the incentive theme. While I do like the incentives, however putting them in the lesson plans could also become a distraction. My son was often too focused on the background of the lesson plan than on solving the problem or continuing to progress and so he would simply sit and study the background. I think it might be more beneficial to have the incentive only at the end or to show up on and off through out the lesson as they progress but not the entire time.
