We have a new app for Luke's iPad 2 and it is a HIT with all of us~Luke, Maggie, and me! 

Pictello is an app that allows you to create your own story with pictures (using your own pictures).  It took me about 5 minutes to create a really simple story for Luke about his favorite things.  I am so excited about it because this is just another way that we can reinforce words that we are working on while incorporating literacy. 

I cannot wait to make another one.  As soon as I can get him to put it down, Maggie and I are going to "pen" a few more stories.

More about Pictello~by AssistiveWare

Pictello is a simple way to create talking photo albums and talking books on your iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. Each page in a Pictello Story can contain a picture, up to five lines of text, and a recorded sound or text-to-speech using high-quality voices. Stories can be shared using iTunes File Sharing or via WiFi with other Pictello users through a free account on the Pictello Sharing Server.

Pictello is developed for all ages and skill levels, so it is easy to use and requires no reading skills to locate and read stories. Pictello offers an easy visual story creation wizard so everyone can use pictures and sound to share important moments in their lives. An advanced editor gives full control of the editing capabilities.

Uses for Pictello stories include:

•Stories to teach social skills or to recall events
•Photo albums to allow nonverbals to share news and interests
•Sharing important events and memories with family who live far away
•Talking books
•Teaching narrative skills as part of a literacy or language skills curriculum
•Schedules, Task instructions, etc.
