Although the information on the left states that this app is available in all languages, it is only presented in English.
This app is based on the best-selling Buddy Bear software and storybooks. Speech-language pathologists and educators appreciate these specialized teaching techniques for children with autism spectrum disorders and developmental disabilities:
•simple, predictable language
•cheerful, reassuring audio
•rewarding animation and sound effects
Buddy Bear helps children compare and contrast items and learn descriptive vocabulary and morphological word endings (“-er” and “-est”) . Five interactive stories also develop joint attention, reciprocity, and early language skills.
The stories include these vocabulary concepts:
What Buddy Bear Sees—high, higher, and highest; some, less, and least; and more
What Buddy Bear Finds—full, fuller, and fullest; tall, taller, and tallest; and more
What Buddy Bear Likes—big, bigger, and biggest; far, farther, and farthest; and more
What Buddy Bear Has—old, older, and oldest; warm, warmer, and warmest; and more
What Buddy Bear Does—wet, wetter, and wettest; good, better, and best; and more
Once you start the app, tap on one of the stories. Back, forward, and repeat arrows provide easy screen navigation. Children choose the correct answer with an easy one-tap response. Correct responses are reinforced with animation, sound effects, and a friendly “Good job!”
