One Step Two Step is an app to help children follow step directions in a fun and interactive way.
The creator is a speech-language pathologist that constantly hears from parents and therapists about the difficulty children have following directions. The ability to follow directions depends upon the child’s auditory sequential memory ability,
which is the ability to hold information in memory in the order it was given. This ability develops over time. Children at 1 year of age begin to carry out simple one step directions such as “ give me the cup.” Between two and three years of age the child follows 2 step directions and by the time they enter Kindergarten they should be able to follow at least a 3 step direction. Life
and school are full of directives. The child who has difficulty in this area is easily left behind or left to follow the other children. Frustration and anxiety build and self esteem often suffers.
One Step Two Step is an app based on the listening-language intervention done on a daily basis by one of the leading speech-language pathologists in the country. AND it’s so much fun!
Children can follow directions by listening to directions and then coloring and dragging shapes onto pictures. With 25 different scenes and almost 500 different directions, your child will surely improve as they have a blast making the pictures within come to life! There is also a simple “game” inside to
help generalize following and giving directions.
The “Pro” version of the application allows for adding names of kids, allowing multiple kids to participate at one time, and recording and exporting performance data.
