Good Free App of the Day: SnapType for Occupational Therapy lets kids type on worksheets

I was at my kids' school last week and ran into my son's OT in the hallways. She happened to be carrying her iPad and she was so excited to share a FREE app she uses with many of the kids, especially those with Autism and having difficulty with fine motor skills. The app is SnapType for Occupational Therapy, and it's really simple to use. Once installed, users can just take a picture of a worksheet and then kids can type to fill in any blanks by typing on the device.



If you would like to download SnapType (FREE, iPad/iPhone), please help support Smart Apps for Special Needs by using our link:

From iTunes:

SnapType helps students keep up with their peers in class even when their penmanship holds them back. Students can easily complete school worksheets with the help of an iPad or iPhone.

With SnapType, students can take a picture of their worksheets, or import worksheets from anywhere on their device. They can then use their iOS device keyboard to add text to these documents and print, email, or share their creations. It is the perfect solution for kids, and even adults, who struggle with their handwriting.
