about the appThe Social Navigator is designed to assist children, ages 6 to 16, who struggle with:
Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD/ADHD)
Oppositional Defiant Disorder
Anxiety and Mood Disorders
Quick, fun and easy to use:
Teach SkillsThe Social Navigator was developed to assist children in reducing explosive and oppositional behaviors, improving communication skills, making and maintaining friendships, increasing social responsiveness and developing greater social awareness and independence.
Reduce MeltdownsUnlike traditional behavior management programs, The Social Navigator incorporates the child's perspective and needs into the social equation. The application is designed to reduce emotional meltdowns, for both the child and the adult, by automatically redirecting attention from a power struggle to a problem to be solved.
Change AttitudesAll too often, adults confronted with challenging behaviors or awkward social interactions respond with punishment or criticism. The Social Navigator focuses attention on improving skills, not disciplining maladaptive behavior.
Train the BrainThe Social Navigator was developed to address the neurological differences and cognitive deficits that lead to impaired cooperative skills. The app guides social information processing and improves social judgment and interaction. It provides a guided format in real time and, through practice, reinforces and strengthens cognitive associations.
