iPrompts – An iPhone App For Families With Special Needs

HandHold Adaptive, LLC, a developer of mobile software supporting those with special needs and their caregivers, has introduced iPrompts, a customizable, picture-based communications tool for the iPhone and iPod Touch. The software application retails for $49.99.

iPrompts allows parents, special educators and therapists to present a variety of graphical prompts that help special needs individuals transition from one activity to the next, understand upcoming events, communicate their needs and focus on the task at hand.

Caregivers are able to create and present picture-based schedules of events, countdown timers portraying a period of time until a pictured activity begins, or choice prompts between any two images by pulling from a library of several hundred stock photographs and illustrations, loading pictures from any personal computer, or adding photographs “on-demand” using the iPhone’s camera.
