A Present for Milo

App Name/Publisher:
A Present for Milo by Ruckus Media Group

A Present for Milo is a storybook app for iOS devices (ipod, ipad, etc..). It's a story about a cat named Milo who goes on a birthday mouse chase throughout the house.

Speech-Language Therapy Use:
This app has been a hit in therapy! Especially for my clients with Autism. It draws them in and creates a number of opportunities for both receptive and expressive language. Activities can ranging from labeling, requesting, following directions, and reading. I use this app mainly for the nice illustrations of prepositions. The prepositions used are: Under, Across, Up, Down, Through, and Around. I also make an obstacle course in my therapy room that follows the course of the story and have my clients act out each scene.

App Benefits/Likes:
This app has more than 80 tap-interactive objects that initiate more than 125 animations just right for active young fingers and minds.

Child could potentially have too much control of app. The child may not want to wait for instructions and interact with the page as they please.

  1. This looks cute. Can't wait to check it out. :)

  2. I like this a lot. Thank you for sharing. I'm always looking for upcycles like this. In the end, you don't know it was a shipping pallet to begin with!

  3. Definitely it's a great dedicated effort from the makers, Ruckus Media Group, to contribute to the great service of helping the autism victims. We have seen many kind of problems such people are facing and hence having something in line to assist them like this always needs to be appreciated. I do work for an essay writing service where I always get projects related to various health related topics and sometimes about autism as well. Hope more of this kind of effective works will be done by you guys to stay as a helping hand for suffering people.
