Pre-sale questions

Courageous Kids familiarises children with a multitude of social situations through personalised stories. There is a whole library covering topics from starting preschool to going to a party to going to the dentist.

You will enter your child’s name and choose illustrated avatars to represent your child and their key grown-ups (parents, teachers, doctors etc). This will uniquely personalise each page of your story.

For further customisation, you can upload your own photographs to replace our illustrations.

The app also contains a Visual Planner (so your child can see what comes next) and games to teach “social rules” in different contexts.

Social Stories are personalized and interactive narratives designed to help children understand social situations, develop social skills, and navigate challenging emotions. By using Social Stories from the Courageous Kids App, your child can:

Improve social understanding: The app’s engaging stories can help your child comprehend social cues, appropriate behavior, and interactions with others, making social situations less overwhelming.

Enhance communication skills: Through interactive storytelling, the app encourages your child to express themselves and communicate their feelings effectively.

Build empathy and compassion: Social Stories often present situations from different perspectives, fostering empathy and understanding towards others’ feelings and experiences.

Visual Plans are structured and easy-to-follow visual aids that help children manage daily routines and tasks effectively. With the Courageous Kids App’s Visual Plans, your child can:

Improve organization and time management: Visual Plans present tasks step-by-step, assisting your child in organizing their day and managing their time efficiently.

Reduce anxiety and meltdowns: By providing clear instructions and expectations, Visual Plans can reduce anxiety and prevent potential meltdowns, as children know what to expect throughout their day.

Foster independence and responsibility: The app’s Visual Plans encourage your child to take ownership of their daily activities, leading to increased independence and a sense of accomplishment.

After sale questions

The app is set to work in landscape mode only. This is because the stories and games need to fit the text on one side and the illustrations/ photos on the other, just like a regular book.
Go to ‘Stories’ then click on the ‘Create new story’ button. Select the story you want, and you can get started.

No, the stories you create are only saved on the device used. This means that no one can steal your data or images as there is no central server.

We suggest using a tablet to create all stories as they are easier to read and look better on a larger screen.

Your purchased stories are available on all your devices linked to that App Store – ie iphone and iPad or across android devices. If you have a different device on you, you will need to create the story again.

When you first download the app you will be asked to create a profile for one child and two adults.

To add additional children or adults:
