Try as we might my wife and I could barely get our 5 year old daughter (who is diagnosed with ASD) to focus on practicing her writing for more than a few minutes a day. Then we discovered this app - what a revelation! She's really taken to 'Little Writer', so much so that she often requests to 'play writing' without prompting. It's so wonderful to see that she's having fun and learning at the same time. I can't thank the developers of this app enough!

Tip: I thoroughly recommend investing in a special stylus that is designed for the iPad so that your child can continue to use this app and learn to write using a pen once they've got the hang of tracing letters using their finger.


Amazing teaching resource

Wow! What a fantastic app. As a teacher with a special needs class I wanted an app to support letter formation (the iPads are a big motivation). I was happy with the tracing function but not overly impressed with American pronunciation until... In the settings you can record all of the letter sounds yourself!!! Hooray! Even more impressive you can add your own words with picture and recording. I've added high frequency and tricky words. I let the kids loose on it tomorrow... Can't wait :)


Great little app!

I recently bought this for my three year old, and with many apps after I downloaded it, I though 'oh no, it's American', with American voice and pronunciations. Annoying! UNTIL I discovered I could record my own word and letter pronunciations to change them from 'BEE' for 'B', to sounds like 'KICKING K....etc. Great! You can also add your own words, so you can input their name for example. I'm pretty sure this was free? A great app even if it was 69p :-)
