App Help:

Wellness Hub has developed interactive educational apps like Autism Basics and Speech Basics that act like friendly companions for your child. In an interesting process of introducing various fruits, our Speech Basics App offers a section named “Fruits,” and our Autism Basics App offers a section named “Fruits and Vegetables.” In the Fruits section of the Speech Basics App, whenever a picture of a certain fruit is selected, it opens up a clearer picture of the same with pronunciation. The pronunciation of that fruit is very well explained through a model of a similar age. This paves an interesting way of learning through modeling. The fruits and vegetables section of the Autism Basics app offers a colorful array of healthy foods to the screen. Whenever a new fruit is heard, your child gets to find it here, knowing clearly about it. Such an introduction of various fruits helps your child learn about nutritious food in an engaging way.


Ensure that ‘Fruit Fun’ remains an enjoyable and interactive activity. Celebrate your child’s efforts and responses, and feel free to repeat the activity with different fruits to enhance learning. Discover the colorful and delicious world of fruits together, making each learning moment joyful and memorable.
