iWant... A Visual text and Audio Communicator for all ages!

A wonderful story about how an Australian father who happens to live locally to me has created apps to help his son (and many others who own them) to communicate via the iPad xxx

Thanks heaps Anthony for sharing with us.

"iWant.. is another App for my Joshua and all other kids and adults"

The iWant..App has arrived.

The Communication Solution App. Specifically designed for you and your needs!
Using your iPad, iPod and/or iPhone, just scroll through the images you created, select your request, tap on it, it will expand to a full screen image with the photo, text and voices audio request, hold it up to the person or people to simply and quickly communicate.

Create your own request by photographing your 'want', or simple select an image from your photo collection, type your request and then use your own voice to record audio, that will ask for your request, then save; SIMPLE and you have created it specifically for you!!

Joshua, my beautiful autistic son response better when he see an image of my face, rather than a stick drawing or the picture provided in the App. This is also true with his mums voice rather than a stranger, this means, other people must also benefit and respond better when iWant.. is design and created specific for the person’s needs, which means they request to communicate with their guardian, family member’s, careers or teachers or the public with confidence and ease.
For both children and adults with communication difficulties we have the best way to quickly and easy communicate by "asking I want......!!"

A Full Screen image, text and a voice over makes communicating highly effective. There are a few excellent Apps on the market now. Expensive, with 1000's of choices and options, all on one page!. We have found that Joshua has about 60 regular demands. So we created 60 images ready for him to look through and select. 20 images fit to an iPad page and you have the ability to scroll up and down to select your 'iWant.."image.
With Joshua for example, we take a picture of our backyard so he can select an image that he already knows and understands so it becomes easy for him to recognize and select to show and play, "i want to go play in our backyard please"; We do the same with his favourite park, our bathroom, his juice cup, etc, everything is tailored to his specific needs; and now you can do the same for your love one, friend or student with a special need.

I’m just a dad, nearly 50, trying to help his son, iWant.. and i can now say, Joshua a few days ago came to he held up his drink, I signed and said, "speaking", he responded, "I want juice"!!! for me I know i have helped my son, it will take time and effort for him, but he has gone forward and now I know it will also help other kids and adults as well as their families, careers, schools, Speech therapist, school mates and friends, the public, etc.; I believe iWant.. can assist in creating communication.

iWant; the affordable communication solution App you will use!

Please also look out for iSpoke Flash Cards: create your own albums with your own themes, again designed for you!

Feature Member: Duane

This weeks feature member is Duane. Duane is a gorgeous little boy with ASD, SPD, Ventricular Septal Defect and also has a seizure disorder.   He finds it overwhelming to be in public places because of his sensory overload and his seizures.  Duanes parents are fundraising for an iPad.  He has some words but he is not easily understood and he finds it hard to get across his needs and wants. 

So help us get Duane an ipad to help him communicate and learn. Every child deserves to have the chance to do that. Every Dollar counts. Please share or donate :)

To help Duane along this week,  BABY LEARNS is donating $1 from every BABY LEARNS COLORS app sold between 7th & 14th June.  Read HERE for more information

$1 from every sale of Baby Learns Colors donated iHelp

$1 from every sale of BABY LEARNS COLORS between 7th & 14th June 
will be donated to our Feature Member!!  

As you can see it is a very colorful app which kids are drawn to.  

They'll sit and 'play' whilst learning their colors !  

Feed  and home the Bebeka's as a reward !

From Smart Apps for Kids review: 

"Baby Learns Colors by Bebebe Co. endeavors to teach children their colors and offers the opportunity to learn them in many different languages. From the home screen an adult can access settings, and the child has three options – to play with their Bebekas (once earned) in the reward area or to explore either the learn or play modes.
In the learn section the child can choose from three scenes: paint splotches, fish, and spaceships. Tapping on items results in the narrator saying their respective color and a small animation. The fish speed off when touched as do the ships in outer space. Children’s voices are used for the narration, which I find really engages my daughter Madelynn. 
Play mode consists of the same three scenes but this time the narrator asks the child to identify specific colors. For every five correct answers the player earns a Bebeka, which is described as a cute little creature who loves company. Clicking on the reward screen, the child can explore and feed their Bebekas. Also accessed from the play mode are three coloring books based on the same three screens the child has already played with the 14 colors the child has been practicing all available to use.
From the settings, a variety of languages can be chosen, some with several different narrators which can be downloaded (for free) and parents can also record their own narration. When I tried this app the first few times with Madelynn I left the narrating settings as they were but when she played and heard Mom and Dad’s voices her enthusiasm for the app increased. We hope to do more voiceovers with the grandparents when they come to visit.
The app is nicely illustrated; the animations are fun and engaging and the narration is crystal clear. The reward frequency is excellent for toddlers and the Bebekas are cute. I like that parents can record their own narration and it’s also possible to share voiceovers with other parents. " 

Here's a short demo on how Baby Learns Colors works.

Feature Member: Kira

Our new Feature Member Kira 

Kira was born with with a very serious brain injury and wasn't expected to live beyond 2 weeks. The birth family was sent home with hospice. Well, she's now 9 and doing great! She continues to amaze her doctors.

On Feb 4th, 2009 Kira's parents had to place a trach and do what's called a separation. This resulted in Kira forever losing her voice. 

An Ipad would give her voice back and allow her to make choices, something she's unable to do at this time. At this point Kira has no control over her environment and I would dearly love to change that.  $700 is the goal because she will need a 64gb iPad to run the AAC (communication app) properly.

Here is Kira's chipin page , every dollar counts as does every share of this cause. Let's help this beautiful little girl get a voice!

We also have a Rafflecopter competition for a $30 iTunes card (or PayPal cash) to be drawn if/when she reaches her goal whilst Feature Member on iHelp.  Enter below
