Being able to tell time from an analog clock has been one of those tasks, which take a child a while to learn, and requires a lot of patience from parents. This task becomes more difficult in the case ofchildren with special needs, as the challenge gets harder. Keeping this whole thing in mind, Dustin Daniels, Henderson (NV), who himself has an autistic daughter, hascreated the app “Teach me Time” and now he wishes to make and present an updated version of it for the ease of parents. He has started a “Kickstarter” campaign to raise funds to add additional features and awareness.
Reportedly, “Teach Me Time” is a touch-based app that is currently compatible with iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. This app includes features like randomized questions, customizable lessons and scoring to keep track of progress. It provides a unique, distraction-free interface, where the numbers attachedto the hands rather than the face of the clock. With the ease of use that it provides, it is expected to help kids learn time telling easily. Scoring option is available to keep a track of the progress made and different test levels are also provided to ensure a thorough understanding of time telling, hands, their positions regarding hour of the day and elapsed time.
This app is the brainchild of Dustin Daniels. Being a father of an autistic daughter, he went through the struggle of teaching her all these things. This was the phase when he got the idea of developing some way of making this learning easy. Though the start was difficult but with time & effort, he made this app keeping in mind the struggles of typical as well as the kids with special needs. This app will be helpful for all the parents going through this journey with their children.
With 11,000 plus downloads of initial version on this app, it is clear that people are finding it very useful,and with suggestions Dustinhas received, he has decided to update the version with the modifications desired by the parents. He also wants to make it available to the Android users in order to expand its reach. So he has started a fundraising campaign on “Kickstarter”, through which he hopes to be backed by people and get the financial help, which will be required to present the updated version of this really useful app.
