Between the Lines

Published July 8, 2014 2:40 PM by Lynn LaValley

BTLines, a Hamaguchi App, explores social communication in various ways.  Although pricy, $15.99, its many levels allow it to be useful with an array of clients (Levels 1, 2 and Advanced).

Between the Lines is easy to play, and fun! The activities address: listening and facial expressions; body language and perspective taking; and expressions, idioms, and slang. Settings allow control over encouragement frequency, answer choices and reward game. Tracking progress is also available within this app.    

When pictures are presented, they are clear and most often against a plain white background to decrease visual distractions. I find some pictures to be too exaggerated and not natural, but clients haven't commented about them. The videos and auditory stimuli are able to be repeated if needed, which has come in handy with many individuals.
