This app is designed by an Occupational Therapist to help children with physical or learning disabilities identify where keys are on the keyboard, then learn to type and spell.
Typing tutors assume the child already knows how to read and spell, and are more concerned with correct fingering. Most standard keyboards come with upper case letters, while children are learning to read with lower case letters. “Miss Sue’s Keyboard Fun” is different. It is designed to encourage children to learn the placement of keys on the keyboard, by matching keys to pictures, and to be rewarded with sight and sound.
This program is compatible with both the IPAD on-screen keyboard, and with standard or BigKeys© keyboards. Each keyboard line may be selected, and the child asked to match the letter. Letters can be presented in order, or at random. Display all the letters on the line, or just the letter to be matched as desired.

What a gift
What an amazing app to teach keyboarding. Our special needs son (barely 5)can already type his name thanks to you Miss Sue. The simple uncluttered screen and calm voice is just perfect for those highly distractible students. With the help of this program and spelling fun we are hoping that by kindergarten our son will not have to use a pencil (since he can hardly hold it) but can access his curriculum through keyboarding. Everyone child with fine motor issues should use this program to gain the skills need to use an alternative to paper pencil! Oh and you can track how long it takes to find each letter.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
