Updates to See.Touch.Learn.® app create unlimited possibilities

STAMFORD, Conn. (April 24, 2013) – Brain Parade®, a developer of learning solutions for children with autism and other developmental disabilities, announces the newest update to the See.Touch.Learn. ® FREE iPad application that provides access to the growing Brain Parade Community. The Community, available by subscription, allows users to download and share visual learning libraries created by thousands of other users around the world.

“I envisioned the Brain Parade Community more than two years ago when I first created See.Touch.Learn.” said Brain Parade President Jim McClafferty. “Including the Community in the Pro version of the app met the request for lesson-sharing made by our professional customers, including educators, therapists, behavior consultants and speech-language pathologists. Offering access to the Community to users of the free version provides a virtually unlimited selection of ready-to-use lessons for everyone.”

The app allows users to create custom picture card instruction for students with special needs. Libraries containing more than 4,400 images and lessons are available for purchase to supplement the free images and exercises included in the free downloadable app. The lessons include stunning custom imagery and audio prompts – replacing the need for bulky, outdated flash cards. The new Brain Parade Community feature allows the more than 330,000 users to share and download lessons, creating a sizable and collaborative library.

“Our product is the next generation of visual learning and was designed to encourage interactivity,” said McClafferty. “See.Touch.Learn. combines the effectiveness of picture cards with the interactivity of the iPad to create a powerful visual learning and assessment tool. And, the Brain Parade Community enhances this interactive setting with endless possibilities for creating and sharing content.”

Additional features included in this free update to See.Touch.Learn. include a “drag and drop” interface for creating and editing of lessons, the ability to organize content into folders, a search tool to locate lessons and libraries by keyword, and the option to randomize card locations during lesson play. Instructors can also utilize a new “Play Mode” that restricts activity to just playing lessons and prevents students from accessing other features.

“We’ve received great feedback, including multiple “best app” honors from education industry leaders such as appolearning.com, Apps for Homeschooling, Teachers with Apps and Smart Apps for Kids,” said McClafferty. “The new Brain Parade Community combined with the professional images and lessons designed by Brain Parade, offers parents and educators an enormous repository of content to create unique, custom instruction for their children and students.”
