HOW SS4KIDS WORKS

THE GAMEPLAY

SCAFFOLDING AND FADING

SS4KIDS serves as a training tool to develop socio-communication skills, and is NOT meant as a device to be used throughout the day in all environments. As the child learns to speak, this support system gradually fades, so the child can better attain generalization, spontaneous communication and independence of the program. Parents incorporate the lyrics and target words throughout the day with other family and friends, and in school. Fading happens on three levels:

REPORTS & GRAPHS

As the child plays, their learning is tracked in realtime. The data is formatted into easy-to-read graphs, which can be shared between the team of professionals and the child’s parent.


Pre-and Post-Assessment data is also available for tracking the child’s progress on each song and target vocabulary word.

THE SCIENCE BEHIND SS4KIDS

Children with ASD - Graph
SS4KIDS combines Neurologic Music Therapy, mobile digital services and game play as an effective intervention for helping children with speech delays. Many research studies have linked musical and linguistic skills (1). Children with ASD often respond actively to music and music therapy, showing effectiveness in improving socio-communication deficits (2). Developmental Speech Language Training through Music, an NMT protocol used in SS4Kids, has shown improved outcomes for speech production with children 3-5 years old with ASD (3) (see results in chart*).
