#1 Special Education Solution for Special Kids
★★★★★ - "This app helps my 4-yo learn how to read and write!" - Nansi S.
Scientifically Approached & Certified Special Education Platform
Probably the only app that can get my non verbal son to play a game appropriately. I am so impressed with the layout of this app and how quickly my son was able to understand how to use it and not get bored or frustrated.
I have a 3yo autism and 1yo newborn. Life can get crazy sometimes. This app is a lifesaver around dinner time. I can give it to my 3-year old for a few minutes and he is totally engaged. He loves all the games and tells me about all the things he learns.
The app isn’t cheap, but deserve every quiet minute I get to myself since my kids will really play this for hours if I let them. Also, he learns through it. Thank you guys for the peace of mind for parents. P.s. the emotions and video games are the kids' favorites :)
