Teach individual new skills with Autism Learning Games: Camp Discovery! Developed by the Center for Autism and Related Disorders (CARD), Camp Discovery offers a growing suite of learning games that appeal to individuals and are approved by parents, teachers, and behavior analysts. Based on CARD’s renowned curriculum, Camp Discovery creates fun learning opportunities for individuals with autism and is an excellent learning tool for individuals ages 2 and up.
BASED ON RESEARCH
The teaching methods used in Camp Discovery were designed by experts in the field of autism and are grounded in scientifically proven behavioral principles, including reinforcement and prompting. For correct responses, players receive visual and auditory rewards to keep them motivated and engaged. After incorrect responses, a unique prompting system guides the player to answer correctly. Although Camp Discovery was designed for individuals with autism, all individuals can benefit from its carefully developed teaching methods.
Many features set Camp Discovery apart from other individuals’ learning apps:
- Every Learning Trial Begins with a Preference Assessment. Rewards for correct responses are personalized for each player based on preferences determined in the assessment. Since each player is unique and preferences will change, the assessment is repeated regularly to keep the game reinforcing;
- Fun Mini Games. Motivate Learning and serve as both a break from learning and an exciting reward for completing rounds;
- Progress Reports Track Improvement. Camp Discovery allows you to track your individual’s progress across games and generates graphs to show you how much your individual is learning; and
- Parents are in Control. Multiple settings can be adjusted to personalize your individual’s learning experience.
SIMPLE USER INTERFACE
The Camp Discovery interface was designed for easy use. The games are voice narrated, and responses require dragging and dropping or touching flashcards.
