We previewed Feed Maxi at a recent special needs expo on Long Island. At first try our son just enjoyed making "Maxi" jump and wasn't too concerned with the activities.
Once the app was purchased and loaded on the IPad our son quickly got the hang of feeding Maxi and playing with the other features.
Our son easily remained engaged for 20 to 30 minutes at a time if we let him, and after more than two months he continues to return to the game, has increased his difficulty level and improved his accuracy.
We are happy to give Feed Maxi a strong recommendation for young or developmentally delayed children. The game options allow some customization for your child and the screen is interesting for the child without being over stimulating.
An update adding higher levels of activity may be appropriate as our son reaches the most difficult level, although he still enjoys spending time with this app.
For comparison, our son is 16 years old, a stroke survivor, he has physical as well as developmental delays. He experiences visual and auditory processing delays and has a limited attention span. The fact that this app can hold his attention for as long as it does is a tribute to its designer.
Love Feed Maxi App!
This app is amazing for young toddlers learning vocabulary and language! My 2.4 year old son is glued to it and goes to it every time he gets on the iPad. I see he knows concepts I didn't even think he understood, and is now aware of all sorts of new foods...I think he will be more likely now to try new foods ;). I can also see how it builds his confidence. I love when he says "ouchiewawa you're strong" to his older sister when she plays rough with him. The programming is brilliant and clearly shows they know how the minds of little ones work! I'm excited to see if he learns sign language too. Thank you Speak Eazy Apps!
This app is wonderful. I started using it with my kindergarten students and they love it. It is extremely user friendly and exciting for the kids. The graphics are great and Maxi is cute, always jumping around and giggling. Many apps don't allow you to track data but Feed Maxi does. I find that to be very helpful, as I can keep track of my students and email the information to myself and/or parents. I highly recommend this app to parents, ESL, speech, reading and early intervention teachers. It is worth every penny!
