Program Description
TURN TAKING - Program #735 is a software program designed to teach the concept of �waiting your turn�. The program can be used in either two-user turn taking mode or single-user mode. When a student�s prompt appears, the student presses their switch, keyboard key, touch window, or mouse click to reveal a section of a picture. Once the entire picture is displayed, a video clip reward related to the picture is played.

In turn-taking mode, the prompt alternates between the left side and right side of the screen to indicate whose turn it is. In single user mode, the student must wait for the prompt to appear before pressing their switch, keyboard key, touch window, or mouse click. Prompts can be customized to be a picture of the student. Audio prompting can be customized as well to include the student�s name.

When the student presses in turn, a section of the picture is revealed along with cheerful music. If an �out of turn� press occurs, a red �X� appears on the side where the �out of turn� press occurred. Feedback for �out of turn� presses can also be customized. If an �out of turn� audio prompt was recorded for the student, it will play it along with the red �X� feedback.

The program features 60 exciting pictures and video clips. A powerful feature of the TURN TAKING program is the ability to add your own pictures and video clips. Data is automatically collected for each student and can be displayed in either a spreadsheet or text format.

TURN TAKING has many customizable features. Some of these features include:
  • Setting the number of sections for the picture
  • Custom prompt picture
  • Custom audio prompt
  • Custom �out of turn� audio and visual feedback
  • The time delay before the prompt appears
  • Adding your own pictures
  • Adding your own video clips

    Actual feedback from some of the field testers of the Turn Taking program

    All students that have used this turn taking program have both enjoyed and benefitted immensely. Students on the spectrum, displaying cognitive challenges, and physically compromised students accessing the program through the smartboard are a few examples of students that I work with weekly that have had the opportunity to use the program. Keep up the great work you folks at Judy Lynn software are doing!
    Steven L. Hodges, MS OTR

    My students absolutely enjoyed the program. The puzzles and the videos held their attention and they liked having their picture as the prompt to take a turn! It is a really good program for my students because they are not used to taking turns and it was a fun way to learn. One of my students learned the concept of turn taking in this game especially quick, which was surprising to me. The others are still working on it.

    It was a great way for them to interact while still practicing turn taking. Some moved faster than the other so it was a good lesson in waiting for others to complete their turn.
    Holly Woods, M.S.; CCC-SLP

    The children were engaged and excited to see what picture was going to be revealed. They were getting the hang of waiting for their turn because the computer let them know when they were impatient and responded before it was their turn again.
