Type-A-Word

This app is designed by an Occupational Therapist. It is compatible with the iPAD on-screen keyboard, or can be used with standard or BigKeys?? keyboards. It includes clear, uncluttered screens to accommodate for low-vision, and provides audio and visual cues. This app begins the process of teaching the letters on the keyboard in order to spell words. You create the word to be typed; each letter of the word isthen presented in turn. When the child finds the matching key fun picture is shown and sound for that letter is played. Uppercase or lowercase letters can be selected for display. Touch the letter to hear its sound, touch the picture to hear the description repeated. The full version gives the option to color the keys on the keyboard display (a different color for each line) and provides data collection showing time taken to press key, and number of incorrect key presses.
