Designed to give practitioners, teachers, parents and carers a quick and easy way to create scenes and stories full of multimedia content, such as audio or video clips, recorded directly into the app with the iDevice!
Tell your friends about Scene & Heard and share it!
Using the app, you can create and link scenes to construct a sequence of events, support narrative, show how to complete a task or to demonstrate a cause and effect.
Build your own communication book that is tailored to an individual AAC speaker’s needs! Now you can use pages from Scene & Heard as part of a printed communication book. Simply choose a cover photo and the scenes you want to include and the app will build in into a communication book which can be printed using Apple’s air print feature. You can also save it to your Dropbox or iTunes, or share it via email, Facebook and Twitter.
An all new task prompting feature was introduced, so you can now create pages giving clear step by step instructions for any task! Use video clips or audio to explain each step, and once complete, the app will move onto the next hotspot. A step-timer has also been built in for actions (such as brushing teeth) that need to be undertaken for a set length of time.
For those who have physical impairments, switch access makes it possible to communicate using Scene & Heard without touching the screen
Schedule a task using the new visual schedule display. Set a page to appear at a given time, and the app will not only provide a notification when the scene is due to appear: it will also put it into a smart, easy to read calendar, so that you know what’s happening and when.
We want to provide you with the resources you need to use interesting and fun learning tools. Our Scene Sharing feature allows you to download any of our premade scenes onto your iPads for personal use.

I think the Scene&Heard application has been very helpful for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. I have been able to take photos of my therapy room to assist these children with requesting, commenting, or engaging socially. It has been very easy to demonstrate for parents and teach others how to use. This application is very functional for the children I treat and I feel can be used across all settings and routines. It has assisted my patients with reducing communication breakdowns and frustration due to limited language skills.

The iPad has become a viable force in the world of AAC devices. It’s versatility lends itself to satisfying many communication needs to users of a variety of levels. I often recommend the TBox apps, “Predictable” and “Scene&Heard” as viable components to a comprehensive communication system. “Predictable” provides an easy to use text-based system with excellent word/grammar prediction. “Scene&Heard” supports the client in using photo journaling to set context. Families are up and running quickly, and are reporting great satisfaction with these apps.
