Skills from the app-
The game involves a series of scenarios, beginning with a play date at Billy’s house. Each time the user plays a scenario, different outcomes to the same situation are likely to occur, demonstrating a need for flexible thinking. The user can also proactively choose different answers to explore various outcomes and paths. The game is targeted at children aged 7-11 and parental assistance is not required for children reading at that level. The library of Billy’s adventures will continue to expand rapidly.
InteractAble was formed in December of 2012 by Allison D’Eugenio and Jane Rapaport. Jane, a special needs educator for over twenty years, had yet to come across a truly effective way of helping students internalize social skills lessons. Allison had just launched the Columbia Business Lab for entrepreneurs upon graduation from Columbia Business School, and realized there was a great opportunity to launch a business specifically targeted at a large subset of Jane’s student population. This subset is children with autism that perform well in school yet struggle in everyday social situations and environments. Following extensive research and concept testing, InteractAble was born and uChoose was designated as its first product.
The team at InteractAble is dedicated to helping children feel prepared for everyday situations at home, at school, and everywhere in between. uChoose does this through a role play game that allows the user to navigate situations and experience multiple outcomes in a safe environment. The library of experiences will continue to grow rapidly to help uChoose’s users think flexibly and be their best selves in social situations.
