Video Scheduler ($12.99) is an app that lets you use photos or video to create schedules. You can set up multiple users, handy for a school based occupational therapist working with a caseload of youngsters. This allows you to keep multiple routines under a specific user's name. Label each step or event with text. Add a photo (take one using the camera or choose one from your camera roll). Finally add an audio comment explaining what to do...so cool! If you have the iPad2 or camera enabled iPod touch, you can take video for each step instead of the photo and audio comment. These videos can target exactly what you want the child to model. When you choose a schedule, you see the linear list view of the steps. When touching the step, the photo/video associated with it fills the screen and you hear the audio prompt or the video playing. Even though you can do great things without the camera in older devices, this app takes full advantage of the camera and video capabilities of the iPad 2. Video modeling is considered an evidence-based practice and provides an effective tool for instruction, intervention and behavioral supports. I can't wait to upgrade my first generation iPad!
Two other options are First Then Video Schedule ($9.99) and Picture Scheduler ($2.99). Which app suits your needs?
