Snap Scene is an instant scene-based communication and language learning app for your child. Take a photo and tag it with recordings to let your child communicate on the fly. Snap Scene turns everyday moments into chances to learn to communicate naturally. Designed for young children, as early as infancy, at the beginning stages of learning communication who do not speak, may be slower in learning to talk, may speak but are difficult to understand, and at risk for communication challenges.
Snap Scene will set your child on the right path to communication. By starting early you can jump start your child’s language development. It can make the difference between language learning success and lifelong language difficulties. Snap Scene is based on Easy VSD, which was shown in research by Dr. Janice Light to increase initiating and maintaining social interactions, sharing information and expressing needs and wants, using new words and concepts including colors, numbers, and letter sounds, and combining words and concepts to express more complex ideas.
Check Out What’s New in Snap Scene 1.2
Just In Time! Snap Scene is faster AND more effective than ever with “Just in Time” programming. Simply drop down the menu, select the hotspot tool, create the hotspot and record, then the hotspot is ready to play. When a new hotspot is added to a scene, it can be used immediately in the interaction, building the child’s language/expressive vocabulary in the moment.
Hotspot “Fade Out” option! Change how hotspots are displayed with the new “Fade Out” option that shows the hotspots when a scene is first opened, then fades them away. This is important because having the hotspots on the screen at all times as dotted lines can disrupt the visual cognitive processing of the scene as a whole, this is especially problematic for beginning communicators.
Larger Programming Buttons! To help support our early communicators, we created larger programming buttons (i.e. Record Sound). By being involved, early communicators are motivated and more empowered to assume ownership of their vocabulary.
Labels! A few changes have been made to the beginning literacy feature that displays the label as the recording plays. The word now animates out from below where you are touching, so it’s not blocking the content of the hotspot. There is also a new option to turn on High-Contrast labels for those with vision impairments. In addition, you now have the option of having labels on all the time!
