I started using Toca Life World when all my appointments were still on telehealth (until I got my first round of COVID shots). A year later I have patients who still request it during in-person appointments. This open-ended video game is packed with things to explore and it’s really useful for speech and langauge treatment.
I first learned about this app years ago when I read a blog about using it with contextual techniques. At the time I had a couple patients who had memorized the social scenes cards I was using and I thought Toca Life World would be a perfect way to create novel social scenes without too much time and effort! Since I got the app I’ve found lots of other uses for it. Here are some ideas complete with tutorial videos!
