Good Free App of the Day - We're More Alike Than We are Different

In honor of the Olympics, we bring you this Good Free App of the Day: We're More Alike Than We are Different. Players are shown two similar pictures with five subtle differences. The app is presented by the Special Olympics and works on both visual identification as well as acceptance of differences.

If you would like to download More Alike (Free iPad/iPhone), please support Smart Apps for Special Needs by clicking the button:

These puzzles are unique and special. Each puzzle has five differences. By touching the difference on either picture, a circle is drawn around it. There is even a hint button in case you get stuck. When the puzzle is completed a nice paragraph about why being different is okay will be displayed.

This app is great for those working on visual perception and for those trying to see why being different is okay. There are quite a few different puzzles, and they vary in difficulty.

From iTunes:
Special Olympics presents More Alike Than We Are Different. This game is part of the Get Into It program and is designed for young children to play and focus on friendship and diversity.

Amanda did have to push the hint button a few times, so she must practice to get her eyes working quicker!
