NDCPD Launces First iPad App


The North Dakota Center for Persons with Disabilities (NDCPD), a Center of Excellence at Minot State University, launched its first iPad application, "Fill Your Plate with Color," an app developed for and tested by individuals with intellectual disabilities. This app teaches the importance of including colorful fruits and vegetables in a healthy diet.


The interactive app uses three different approaches for teaching individuals about healthy eating habits: Watch and Learn, Read and Listen, and Play the Game. Watch and Listen includes real-life footage of a person making healthy food selections at a grocery store. The video features two interactive lessons to allow the user to select the healthier food option between two choices. Read and Listen is designed to look like a book containing still text and graphics accompanied by a voiceover reading the text.
