SLPs and educators love the specialized teaching format of the Buddy Bear products! This app teaches yes/no questions and develops reciprocity and early language skills.

The research-based teaching techniques meet the unique learning needs of children with autism spectrum disorders and developmental delays:

  • simple, predictable language
  • uncluttered illustrations
  • engaging, reassuring audio narration
  • rewarding animation and sound effects
  • open-ended responses
  • flexible, story-based learning

There are five themed stories. The stories match the content of the Autism & PDD Yes/No Questions Interactive Software and 5-Book Set.

  • Buddy Bear at the Beach e.g., "Buddy Bear is at the beach. He brought something to wear. Is it pants?"
  • Buddy Bear at the Grocery Store "Buddy Bear is at the grocery store. He is buying fruit. Is it an apple?"
  • Buddy Bear at Home "Buddy Bear is at home. He wants something shiny. Is it a ring?"
  • Buddy Bear at the Park "Buddy Bear is at the park. He sees something pretty. Is it a butterfly?"
  • Buddy Bear at School "Buddy Bear is at school. He has something to read. Is it a newspaper?"

The app has 45 interactive screens packed with teaching opportunities so youngsters can:

  • understand and answer yes/no questions
  • build language comprehension
  • increase spontaneous communication exchanges
  • develop joint attention and social reciprocity

Once you start the app, tap on one of the five stories. Touch the back, forward, and repeat arrows for easy screen navigation. Each answer screen has two Buddy Bears - one is nodding "yes" and the other is shaking his head "no." Children touch the Buddy Bear who answers the question correctly. Correct responses are reinforced with a friendly "Good job!" A randomization feature can be turned on/off.
