Welcome to Onwards and Upwards, or ONandUP for short! We are dedicated to creating software that enables early and special learners to build foundational skills in order to achieve academic and social success. Utilizing our unique cast of 3D animated characters, we engage learners in highly interactive environments to maintain interest and focus. All materials are evidenced-based and aligned with recognized assessments and standards. Over the next several years, a complete library of apps will become available to teach early/special learners the most important foundational academic, social and life skills. Thank you for joining our journey!
Over the past two years, ONandUP has designed, and with substantial user input redesigned, a cast of 3D characters that learners can engage with in almost any environment. The characters are specifically designed to assist students learn foundational skills by modeling, labeling (tacting), verbalizing and interacting with real-world objects and concepts. Students are eager to select one of the characters as their “learning partner” to explore varied subjects.
A brief introduction to the cast….
Environment 1 – Classroom
Environment 2 – Home
Environment 3 – To Be Announced
Launching early in 2021, the ONandUP Cloud will allow therapists, parents and teachers to easily track the progress of learners. All ONandUP apps will allow users to optionally create an account on the ONandUP Cloud and link the installed ONandUP apps to the cloud. Once linked, the learners progress data is tracked to ensure progress and recognize difficulties.
ACTION VERBS 1
We put the action in verbs! Learn action verbs demonstrated and modeled by 4 amazing 3D characters. Specifically designed for special and early learners, Action Verbs 1 demonstrates each of 16 verbs via an engaging 3D character. The character demonstrates the verb in action along with stating the verb and playing an audio effect. Learners can interact with the characters and earn rewards for learning. Highly engaging and fun, this is the first in a series of apps to teach special and early learners the foundations!
