Great way to introduce Switch access
Splat the Clowns was the first Inclusive Tech app I had purchased, for $2.99. The idea is to press a switch or touch the screen to splat the clown face when it gets to the circle in the center of the screen. Splat five clowns and the reward song comes on. This app is great for building cause and effect play, targeting, timing, and visual tracking. You can easily incorporate language concepts like wait, in, go, or turn taking social pragmatics if doing this as part of a group. It's black background, simplistic and uncomplicated, make it a wonderful app for those with visual impairments, like cortical visual impairment, low vision, etc. I have used this app with a students from preschoolers through 5th graders with a variety of abilities, from able bodied peers to those with the most challenging impairments; the result is still the same: Engaged and Happy Players. Splat the clowns is a wonderful addition to the cause and effect play folder on any iPad.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
