Special Needs App of the Day: ConversationBuilder

ConversationBuilder helps elementary-age children who have trouble conversing with peers in social situations. This app gives the user options in choosing who begins the conversation (“student” or “peer”) and which phrase to say to either initiate or keep the conversation going. Conversations can be four or eight exchanges long.

When the “student” registers to use the app, it asks what his or her name and interests are. This information personalizes conversations within the app.

Students record one half of the conversation in each exchange, and a voice in the app responds. At the end of a series of exchanges, they can play back the entire conversation and hear their own voices.

ConversationBuilder is available on iPad for $9.99.
