Shapes puzzle for the youngest. Training motor skills of preschoolers using attractive animal pictures or pictures of your own family!

Shapes puzzle for the youngest. Training motor skills of preschoolers using attractive animal pictures or pictures of your own family!

Publigence

Ribbit is a fun app for your preschooler; using attractive animal pictures or pictures you take with the camera or from your image library, your child learns to recognise different shapes. Applause and a slide show of pictures rewards a job well done to stimulate repetition and learning.

Ribbit contains five different collections of image pictures to choose from, but it also allows you to make your own collections. Add pictures of the people in your family or of your child; they'll discover the images as they complete the puzzle.

Accompanied by an up-beat tune (that you can turn off :-)), Ribbit offers hours of playing fun. Not to mention that it promotes shape recognition and fine motor skills.

This application has been fully conceived for youth with special needs and allows you to customise it’s settings for your child’s perceptual and sensory abilities. The various functions enable to:

- Adapt the task according to the progress of the child, thus promoting the experiences of success (as well as interest and motivation);

- Divide the task in several steps to facilitate it’s organisation and execution;

- Focus on a single part of the image to foster the child's selective attention on the task at hand;

- Decrease motor requirements (dexterity and visual motor coordination) for line accuracy;

- Adjusting the percentage of the shape that needs to be filled;

- Maintain the child's interest by auditory and visual stimuli adapted to the characteristics of your child;

- Encourage the child's attention on the task and limit self-stimulation behaviours by presenting a simple user interface.

Does your child get his b’s and d’s mixed up? How about her p’s and q’s? LetterReflex provides a fun way to help overcome common letter reversals. The first activity, Tilt It, uses kinesthetic learning to teach left from right. The second activity, Flip It, allows them to practice what they learned while honing their letter discrimination skills.

√ Tilt It: Teach Left from Right using Kinesthetic Learning

According to research, a key reason for letter reversals is not knowing left from right, and as a result kids get confused when trying to discriminate between a “b” and a ‘d” or a “p” and a “q”. They’re not quite sure which side the letter loop should go on.

Our Tilt It activity uses kinesthetic learning techniques to help kids map their left side/right side to correct letter formation. They will learn the correct position of letter loops by being challenged to tilt the device in the correct direction to form letters.

Designed for fun as well as education, Tilt It is a maze game that gets progressively more difficult as the learner succeeds at each level.

With practice, they will form an instinctive correlation between letter formation and left side/right side.

√ Flip It: Practice Letter and Word Discrimination

Using arcade game action, Flip It challenges kids to visually discriminate and manipulate letters and words to match the correct orientation. The activity will help hone their visual discrimination skills and further cement their knowledge of correct letter and word formation.

Both activities are designed to be repeatable and engaging, and when used on a regular basis will help address the problem of letter reversals.

Tracking and Progress Reports: The app includes an automatic tracking and reporting feature makes it easy for parents, teachers and therapists to identify time on task, accuracy, and progress. You can email the reports right from the app.

LetterReflex is a universal app compatible with iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. Buy it once, and use on all your iOS devices.

App pedigree: LetterReflex is from the creators of Dexteria, the top-ranked, critically acclaimed app that improves fine motor skills.

Features:
•Unique kinesthetic approach to solving letter reversal problem
•Easy to use, fun to play
•Designed to be used in short sessions, repeated over time
•Runs on all your iOS devices
•Randomized game play ensures kids won’t get bored
•Automatically generates usage reports
•Reports can be emailed to parents, teachers, therapists
