This is another really nifty little app that does one thing very well. After using the Touch Trainer app to teach our son how to interact with a touch screen, this is the app we moved to next. It starts with one little dot moving around the screen. The child is supposed to pop the dot by touching it with an index finger. Each screen then progresses to include more moving dots. It’s really cool for encouraging little ones to use a touch screen properly, and it also is great for eye-hand coordination. It can also be used to practice turn taking and joint attention. Our son loves this app, and it has proven a lifesaver when out in public in a waiting situation.
I opened this app in his therapist’s waiting room one afternoon. Suddenly, I had the attention from a little boy who had been all the way across the room. Though I don’t know his diagnosis, he was clearly on the spectrum as well and non-verbal. He walked right up and began joining in with my son popping the bubbles.
This is a great little app at just 99 cents.
