AUTISM AS­SIST

Mother & Baby (Australia) - - The Buzz -

Aussie dad and sup­port teacher Brad Rat­cliffe works with spe­cial needs chil­dren in the class­room and has two sons who are on the autism spec­trum. He knows from ex­pe­ri­ence how dif­fi­cult it can be for kids with autism spec­trum dis­or­der to stop one ac­tiv­ity, move to another lo­ca­tion and start another ac­tiv­ity. Brad de­signed the First & Then app (Google Play and iTunes, $5.99) as a dig­i­tal al­ter­na­tive to tra­di­tional re­sources, such as lam­i­nated cards, used to help kids make smoother

tran­si­tions with fewer melt­downs.
