What's The Saying?
What's That Saying is a neat app that has literally painted out English expressions such as idioms, catchphrases, or slang. I like this app because a lot of children with high functioning autism are very concrete and are literally picturing these expressions as literalisms. This weakness in understanding social language causes difficulty when engaging with peers especially when slang is used. I created a Pinterest board, based on idioms and figurative language that I use with this population. The (btw are you using Pinterest during therapy?)
Each scene, in What's That Saying, has a plethora of expressions beautifully illustrated in great detail. There are 2 basic ways to utilize this app the first one is "Guess the Picture." In Guess the Picture mode you zoom into different sections of the illustration and tap on a picture. The portion of the picture highlights and you must guess by typing in your answer.
The second way to utilize the app is by "Find it from the list". To do this you open of the answer book and scroll through the list for an expression you would like to find and then you search for it.
