How to Use Inference Pics
Inference Pics has seven activities: What has happened?, Jobs, Places, Seasons, Feelings, Thoughts, Conversations. While there are multiple choice options available, the app is designed to be interactive with a family member or therapist helping the child or adult user.
Each activity has two questions. The first question asks the user to make an inference e.g. What has happened? How are they feeling? etc. The second question in each activity is “How do you know?”. This is to promote verbal expression and the person’s ability to find the clues in the picture (e.g. body language, facial expression) and make an appropriate social inference.
Choose one of the seven categories in Inference Pics
Ask the child or adult the question displayed on top or play the question
Display the multiple choice options if they have difficulty answering
Support the person to find the clues in the picture e.g. body language, facial expression and to make an appropriate inference
Help the person to form well-shaped answers
