A Social Stories App?
“Let’s take just one stakeholder example: students with disabilities, as well as their teachers and parents. Autism advocate and software developer Russ Ewell from the Hope Technology Group is excited. “Apple could unlock another door for autism with this breakthrough,” Ewell said. “Parents could create social story books.” So could special education teachers or therapists, tailored for each student.”
I wouldn’t be honest if I didn’t admit we were excited to be quoted on Wired.com last month. We were a big player in a significant article about education, text books, and digital publishing. You can read the entire article here.
What I consider most important about this story is in my quote. Properly developed and leveraged iBooks Author could become a powerhouse publishing platform for Social Stories.
Whether iBooks Author realizes this potential is difficult to predict, but one thing is certain, Social Stories are a vital tool for children and adults with special needs. In fact, we have begun looking into the development of a Social Stories app by Digital Scribbler. Please give us your feedback on this potential project.
