Shapes – Lite is a perceptual training and pre-reading tutorial program designed for use by parents or teachers working with children with developmental disabilities or autism. This application (or app) allows a parent or teacher to use their Apple iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad to teach a child to recognize different shapes such as triangle, square, circle, and rectangle. The app is organized into multiple "Learn and Play" sections, each with separate "Learn" and "Play" parts. In the "Learn" part, pictures of shapes are shown one at a time on the screen accompanied by text and audio prompts. In the "Play" part, four pictures of shapes are displayed together on the screen and the child is asked to select the picture of shape stated in the text and audio prompt. Each correct response is rewarded with a cheerful animation. After the child answers the final question, a score screen appears, followed by another animation. Scores are recorded in the app for progress tracking and analysis purposes, and for assignment customization. Available languages include English, Chinese, Czech, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish and Turkish. COMPATIBILITY: For use with an Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad. SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS: Apple iOS 4.0 or later.
