I loved, well still love, coloring. For many children it is quiet, calm time that allows them to decompress the stresses of there day and focus on a simple and enjoyable task. Merge Mobile, a supporter of Autism Speaks, as created a fun and engaging app that  allows children to have those quiet and fun moments without all paper and crayons. Their app, Autism Speaks Coloring Book, has 40 different pictures for kids to pick from and customize.


Once they find a picture  all they have to do is tap to select.


There are oodles of different colors and patterns to choose from. To change colors, just tap the multicolored crayon in the tool bar. Students can pick from a paint bucket, which covers a large area with the selected color or the paint brush, which can be used for smaller spaces, writing, making fun designs, etc. You can also choose how thick or thin you want the line to be.



There are also choices to import pictures into the coloring pages and save your picture to your iPad.

To add this fun app to your speech tool box you can visit iTunes, it’s only $.99!   A great aspect of this app is that Merge Mobile donates all proceeds from the app to Autism Speaks!  So how would you like to win a copy?  You can enter to win one of three copies that Merge Mobile is so generously giving away 🙂  Just enter the Rafflecopter below.  Winners will be chosen on Monday, August 19th.

  1. I’d love to have this app. I could use it for a general reinforcer for students. Speech uses could be for following directions (especially using basic concepts), vocabulary and classification.

  2. This app is great to use as a reinforcer for kids, answering questions, categories, prepositions, following directions, and so much more. Love it! Thanks for the review and giveaway opportunity!

  3. I would use this app as a reinforcer as well as for vocabulary building, color naming, requesting, etc.
    Looks like it would be very useful~

  4. I could use it with students to work on describing skills, following directions, fluency, concepts, joint attention, etc.

  5. I think that I would end up using this as a reinforcer for kids, unless I find a good fit with some particular students

  6. I would love to use this app to have as a reinforcement activity, to work on following directions, and naming colors.
