From A4cwsn: “This is wonderful for my young students who are working on imitating and following basic instructions.”
Give the boy something to eat. He’ll even say “Thanks!” Touch the violin and it plays for you!
Fun with Directions Lite is a ground-breaking app for the iPHONE, designed to provide a fun and engaging way to practice listening, following directions, working memory and the auditory processing of language. From the simplest of directions (“Touch the cat”) to the more complex (“Give the boy without a hat or glasses, something round that grows on trees and can be red or green.”) your child can grow and learn with this game over time. Colorful, vivid art and animations against a white background combine to create a complete game experience without visual clutter. Sound effects and surprises keep the game engaging! This app is a great choice for a toddler/preschooler, or any young child who would like to practice listening to or reading directions!
Included in the Lite version are two concepts: “Give” and “touch.”
Features include settings for text on/off, (to practice reading vs. listening) and the desired level of play: easy, intermediate, and advanced.
An added bonus that is included in this app is the optional “Superstar Direction” which allows additional practice for remembering (“What did you have to do?”) but also expressive language. The child’s response is recorded and played back. Superstar Directions are surprise questions that pop up at random times, but can easily be turned off if desired.
