The numbers pack includes number 0 to 20 and multiples of ten from 30 to 100.
We are working to launch additional packs soon, including letters, colors and emotions. Each of these packs will include an extension for the expert system.
Two packs are available with extra rewards or reinforcement activities. The interactive scenes pack adds 8 new scenes in addition to the 2 included in the starter kit.
The video pack enables you to play videos you have preloaded on your IPad or to stream videos from YouTube, directly from within AbaPlanet (an Internet connection is required for YouTube videos).
Individual Packs and Bundled Packs
The packs with additional concepts and reinforcers can be bought directly from within AbaPlanet using Apple’s standard in-app purchasing mechanism. Packs can be bought individually or as a bundle.
We recommend that you download our free app first and get to know it. From then on, if you are only interested in developing specific areas of vocabulary, then you can buy individual packs, while on the other hand if you plan to use AbaPlanet as a general aid you may prefer to buy bundled packs.
The shapes and numbers packs include a specific expert system. These are more complex concepts and should be taught once your child already has a good base of vocabulary.
In order to keep your child motivated, if you plan to regularly use the reinforcers from within the app, then we recommend that you buy the reinforcers pack. The wider variety of reinforcers will provide motivation for unaided learning for a much longer period of time.
