Why is there a talking avatar?

The short answer: have you ever seen anyone talk without a face? The long answer: many individuals with autism may find it extremely difficult to look at the face of another person; however, most have no problem viewing an avatar or animated picture which is modeling how words, sentences, and emotions are produced on the lips, face, and mouth.  Video modeling is, in fact, an evidence-based approach according to The National Professional Development Center (NPDC) and The National Autism Center (NAC). Video self-modeling (VSM) is built on this principle: if individuals ‘see’ themselves performing some desired behavior, they are better able to perform that behavior.

What languages are available?

Why do I lose my remote-prompting connection?

When your iPad goes into “Auto-Lock,” the connection to Remote Prompting is lost. For best results during Remote Prompting, turn your “Auto Lock” Setting to “Never.” This will prevent the iPad from going into sleep mode and breaking the connection between the Sender and Receiver. You can find this feature in your device by following these steps: go to Settings<General<Auto-Lock.
