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

Below is the first part of the resulting list of apps, in no particular order. Part two to follow soon.
