The first and then app is designed by a father of two children with autism who works in special education, the first and then app is a tool to help parents, caregivers, educators and therapists reduce anxiety and facilitate a calm, smooth transition anywhere, anytime.
"First and Then" is designed for
- Those with autism

First and then is an amazing tool that can provide communication and directional assistance for those with autism and other communication challenges, where an app that provides first and then sequential visual representation is required.
The "First and Then" app was developed after years of using manual visual aids to communicate to and provide a calming stress relief for children with autism. We are amazingly proud of the first and then app, and the time and stress relief that it has provided for our family.
We hope that First and Then is one of many app developments that we will produce to assist parents, caregivers, and other to care for, value and help kids with many various challenges thrive and develop.
