  • Faces iMake

    $2.99

    Platform: iOS

    Faces iMake is a tool for creating collages using pictures of every-day objects but Faces iMake is much more than that:

    • It is a tool for expanding VISUAL AWARENESS and VISUAL ASSOCIATIONS, activities mostly controlled by our right brain.
      Indeed, Daniel Pink, author of A Whole New Mind, put it very well when he said, "It is fun and addicting if you can get it away from your kids."
    • It is an intuitive tool for CHILDREN WITH DISABILITIES.
      Shannon Des Roches Rosa, editor of The Thinking Person's Guide to Autism, wrote: "Our kids love Faces iMake ... its interface is one of the best I've seen for kids with autism."
    • It enables kids' EXPRESSION IN A NON VERBAL WAY. An enthusiastic student will have more incentive to articulate on his/her creation.
