UK parents create app to help families with autistic relatives
Jenn and Brad Ratcliffe, a UK based couple, have designed an app aimed at helping families with autistic members. The Ratcliffes, who are parents to two children on the autism spectrum, wanted to help others who are coping with the challenges of living with autism.
Called First and Then, the app works via simple instructions and has been downloaded by people from all over the world.
It works by replacing visual supports such as laminated picture cards that are designed to show children what is coming next. All parents’ need with this is a phone, tablet or device, and they can give children a simple instruction with pictures and words explaining what comes 'first' and what will follow.
