Picturepath explained


“I love adding and ticking off the activities on my timeline – I like to plan my days out using picturepath on the iPad so I know exactly what’s happening”

Freddie Nurse, Age 9, Autistic Child

“I love how easy and straightforward the app is to use, the kids love updating their timelines and it keeps them calm if there’s any changes to their routine”

Suzie Prichard, parent to two SEN Children

“We’ve started using picturepath in class as a digital, interactive visual timetable and I love it! So easy to set up and use, a brilliant classroom tool. It’s making a great difference to all of our SEN children.”

Mrs Brickland, SENDCo at St Bernards Primary School

“I found it really useful from the very beginning, your product is one of the best I’ve ever used for individual inclusion!”

Dot Mohan, SendCo at Bromham CofE Primary

“An excellent range of common symbols and the option to add a real image using photos taken on your device is amazing. Excellent value for money and recommended for schools and SEN caregivers.”

Claire Ryan, ChatterPack SEND hub
