Everyday Skills
Everyday Skills is an essential app for transitioning high schoolers
Publisher: AbleLink Technologies, Inc.

Why we love this app

Universal Design in Learning is a method of instructional delivery that takes into account the needs of all learners. By using this principle in the design of the app, Everyday Skills sets to meet the needs of all learners who are moving on to an independent life, or for those that are working on personal independence.

What it teaches and how it works

Everyday Skills teaches key life skills in 3 major components- Community skills, Personal Skills, and Transportation and Life skills. The lessons are step-by-step and easy to use. Anyone can use this app independently relatively easily. For those that are working on a life of independence, or just learning, Everyday Skills is a great app to have in the toolkit!

Why your kid won't be able to put it down

Building independence at this stage is so critical. Everyday Skills does just that in a step-by-step fashion that is neither detracting or distracting to the goal of learning the particular skill. Even at the price point, it's such an essential app to have for users. The simplicity is what makes it so brilliant, and it's guaranteed to be successful with a wide variety of individuals who are transitioning.
