We are always on the lookout for fun ways for Kid’s to learn.Even better when it helps learning disabled kids to learn AND have fun doing it too!
Well the folks at Zyrobotics, a leading assistive technology firm and the same people that brought us The winner of the 2014 Moms Choice Award for Best in Family friendly products “Turtle Invaders”. Have now brought us a new Special Needs Math App. What’s it called you Ask? OCTOPLUS. It’s a fun new App thats all about helping children learn simple math and have loads of fun doing it.It’s one of those game that teaches the kid’s while they’re playing and they don’t even realize it.
Looks fun doesn’t it.Developed for kids to use Hands on to enhance the motor skills of children with motor or cognitive delays..
OctoPlus provides kids with fun, interactive math addition problems that are accessible based with the student’s math skill and disability in mind. It’s like other apps we’ve reviewed on bookroomreviews.It’s just fun to use.The kids go off on a deep sea adventure while figuring out the different math problems.
What I really like is that it works for every kid. If your child is not learning disabled wonderful.Then they can use it as is.But if they are there are the App has special features to help them along such as.
Switch-accessiblity for children with motor limitations who use an external switch (connected through a Bluetooth switch interface such as TabAccess)
The Graphics and music can be adjusted to make the game suitable for sensory sensitive kids or for kids that are easily distracted, such as children with Autism or attention deficit disorder
It’s also based on the U.S. Common Core curriculum (whether we agree with Common Core or not}
It’s really a great learning tool so give it a try download it from Itunes…
