Another Top Ten Slow Targeting Apps - Part 2


A recent discussion on our Facebook Fan Page, resulted in a list of ideas and apps for those who need slow targeting apps.

Nidia wrote: What apps can we download for special needs? My daughter has severe cerebral palsy, and I am looking for an iPad that has a key guard so that she can rest her hand on in order to target what she needs, also attainable games that she can play that are simple and girlie. Feeding fish, anything barbies, animals, shopping, easy games that require slow targeting

DeAnn responded: "We use a small cheap glove with one finger cut out. It is helpful to not touch the rest of screen"

Jodi said, "If you put a glove on your daughter and then cut off the tip of one finger (the tip of the glove's finger, not your daughter's), it will allow her to rest her hand on the screen and only activate what she touches intentionally with her finger (or you can cut off multiple fingers if she needs to be able to access with more than one finger)."

Below is the second part of the resulting list of apps, in no particular order. Part one can be found here.

Finger Paint With Sounds by Inclusive Technology Ltd

From iTunes:
"Explore touch with colour, sounds or music. An opportunity to finger paint without the mess! Finger Paint with Sounds offers a fun alternative to help children with special needs and others to practice their first interactions with a touch screen. Simply choose a colour and draw with music, fun sound effects or no sound at all.

Finger Paint with Sounds offers multi-touch and single-touch options. We suggest that single finger touch is better for some users with special needs as it reinforces finger pointing skills with a purpose rather than encouraging a random whole finger approach (may be difficult to un-learn). Using multi-touch gives a more obvious “cause and effect” activity for some.

Try turning off the sound and music to see if the child needs auditory feedback or if they can see and enjoy the visual feedback alone."

Tizzy Labs games

From Tizzy Labs website:
"We are 2 developers who have 6 kids between the two of us, and we only create games that we would want our kids playing and learning from.

Our apps made for children will never have Ads rotating through them as a way to make extra money. I cannot tell you how many times I have been frustrated with a good game that had horrible ads in it, that were very inappropriate for my kids eyes and ears.

We want you, the parents, to know where we are coming from. We're regular people, just like you, trying to make games for our kids to play. And we hope you will let your kids enjoy them too. :-)"

Cas finds compiling these lists very informative and loves that a discussion about apps can include ideas on refashioning old gloves with holes in the fingers.
