*** CHECK OUT OUR NEW AUTISM APP: POPCHILLA'S WORLD ***
Popchilla's World is a new game for kids with autism to practice social skills like waking up, saying hello, brushing teeth and more! Help us create this game: http://popchillasworld.com/
========================================================

"Touch & Say" is for developmentally young children, including most children ages 1-4, and also young children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) who may have delayed development in social skills.

"Touch & Say" is based on lessons learned during a pilot study with the Autism Center of Pittsburgh exploring the use of Interbots' "Popchilla" robot as a therapy tool. This pilot study took place in fall 2010 and was supported by the Sprout Fund MicroSpark program. The six activities in "Touch & Say" were used with Popchilla to attempt to stimulate social skill development in children with ASD. We have compiled these exercises into a single app designed for standalone use without a robot.

"Touch & Say" is provided as a potential tool for parents and children. Interbots make no claims or guarantees about child development outcomes from using "Touch & Say."

We are continuing to explore technology for developing children, including robotics and interactive applications. Do you have feedback or suggestions for us? We'd love to hear from you! Contact us at lets-support@interbots.com
