"Fun With Directions" App for Listening, Auditory Memory, Processing and More

"Fun with Directions is a ground-breaking app, designed to provide a fun and engaging way to practice listening, following directions, colors, spatial concepts, auditory memory and auditory processing. From the simplest of directions (“Touch the cat”) to the more complex (“With your orange crayon, color the large one that is a furry pet and likes to chase mice”) your child can grow and learn with this game over time.  Sound effects and surprises keep the game engaging!

 

This app is a great choice for a toddler/preschooler, or any young child who would like to practice listening to or reading directions!"

Ready to Print | Apps For Children with Special Needs

Ready to Print | Apps For Children with Special Needs | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it

Ready to Print was created by an Occupational Therapist with over twenty years of experience working with children. It is a tool for parents, therapists and educators to help teach pre-writing skills to children in order to build a strong foundation for beginning printers.

Ready to Print progresses through the pre-writing skills in a specific order, so that children can master the visual-motor, visual-perceptual, and fine motor skills necessary for correct printing patterns. It is designed to teach children the correct patterns for printing, and to avoid bad habits that are difficult to change as the child gets older.
