Write my name iPad application - review

Laura uses our iPad for educational games and watch shows on Netflix. I have been working with her on writing and reading, She has been on the brink of reading for months. However, she much rather write than read.

I found an app last week on the iPad perfect for children learning how to write. It's called Write My Name and runs for two dollars. As a parent and teacher, I find it very beneficial.

The child sees a picture, hears the pronunciation and is able to trace the word as well. I tried it and even with cerebral palsy, I was able to trace the word. This would be an excellent app to use in physical and occupational therapy.

Children with autism, cerebral palsy, and learning disabilities could benefit fro this app. Laura use it for 30min at a time and was sounding out words on her own,

You can also add up to 30 words on your own. It comes with 100 pre programmed. I added Laura's entire name so she has practice writing her last name too.
