Ready-To-Print

This app teaches visual perception and motor coordination of prewriting strokes that are a necessary foundation prior to learning to write ABCs and 123s in a developmentally sequential manner. Although this app is more pricey than most, $9.99, it is so worth it in that there are 10 different categories of play and within each category it has many activities that are graded from easy to more challenging to meet a variety of levels of learning. If you want to add a hand strengthening and coordination component to using this app, have your child pinch a ½” x ½” square piece of cellulose sponge and use this as an alternate to interacting with the app using their isolated index finger! http://yourtherapysource.blogspot.com/2012/10/pincer-grasp-on-ipad.html
