What is Scene & Heard?

Scene & Heard
is the multimedia scene communication tool from Therapy Box.

Scene & Heard has been designed to give practitioners, teachers, parents and carers a quick and easy way to create scenes full of multimedia content, such as audio clips and video clips, recorded directly into the app with the iDevice!

Based on the visual scene display approach to augmentative communication, the application can be used to support communication for people with developing language skills and those who benefit from context, with hotspots to click on, which then play a pre-recorded message. The scenes can also incorporate the Widgit Symbol Set which are accessible directly through the app when editing. Each symbol can be given an audio message, providing a high tech system for users!

Scene & Heard can also be used in the mainstream classroom, enabling class activities such as storyboarding and interactive story telling. Presentations can also be completed with the aid of Scene & Heard, with students photographing and annotating scenes with voice and video evidence.

Adults who need support with communication can also benefit from the scenes within Scene & Heard. Scenes may also be used for task prompting, reminding and task demonstration can be created and played back on the iDevice.

Scene Sharing

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. The scenes are in a range of categories, from promoting independent decision making, describing, explaining and differentiation.

To see a step by step guide to uploading a scene onto your iPad, just download the PDF guide next to any scene.

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.

"We are using this app with a Hearing-Impaired Student and they are already making progress and are able to better communicate with peers and adults.This is a great app for individuals with disabilities who need communication support. The emoticons are especially hilarious, and they allow the user to inject humor into synthesized speech. The interface is very easy to use and the word prediction is excellent. Thank you for offering us this product that will change the life of our student."
