Ready to Print | Apps For Children with Special Needs

Ready to Print | Apps For Children with Special Needs | 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.
