Action Words is an application for children with learning or intellectual disabilities. This application includes over 100 action words using real photographs to increase their early vocabulary and improve their writing skills. Users can select which category of action words they want to work on (emotions, movements, etc.) and, within a category, turn action words "on" or "off" so they can monitor how many new words are presented in each round. When the user selects which category he or she wants to work on, an action word appears on the screen accom panied by four photographs. The user must select which photograph best depicts the given action word. There are no hints or penalty for selecting the wrong photograph, the user just keeps guessing until he or she chooses the correct photograph. This application is made to be engaging for its user, so the existing 500 photographs, concepts, and accompanying audio are all customizable. Users can also add their own categories, action words, and photographs.
