ImagiRation – Puzzles for Children with Autism | NewsWatch Review

App Review

It is often said that children who have autism do not see the forest for the trees. They simply pay too much attention to the little details and unfortunately miss the whole picture. Research also shows that once a child develops the ability to mentally integrate multiple features, there is a breakthrough in the general learning ability of the child. Well, ImagiRation has developed a computerized early-intervention therapy application – Mental Imagery Therapy for Autism or MITA.

ImagiRation was created by a group of scientists, educators, artists and developers who are passionate about making the best educational games for early childhood development. MITA consists of interactive puzzles designed to help children learn how to mentally integrate multiple features of an object. These fun exercises are disguised as interactive games for kids, and work as a really great therapy tool to use for children with autism. The MITA app follows a systematic approach where kids start with very simple, easy exercises that require attending to only one feature  – such as color, size, or shape. Then the exercises move on to requiring simultaneous attention to two features, such as color and shape, or shape and size. Then the exercise requires attending to three features such as shape, or size and color. The exercises continue on until the child can integrate multiple features into one Gestalt. The three pilot studies of MITA have demonstrated that it can be successfully administered by parents at home to their children that are as young as two years of age. This innovative, educational app is already being used by thousands of kids with autism.

If you are ready to help your child with autism, this app is available to download. Right now, the ImagiRation app is completely free and is available on iPad, Android and Amazon Kindle Fire.
