Ratings and Reviews
This is a great app. I like that it can be used with kids who have varying ages and skill levels when it comes to typing, spelling, and communication. It has great visual and verbal feedback. In addition, Cheryl the developer has been very helpful with any questions I have had! I would recommend this app to anyone.
This is a GREAT APP! We use it at home and mom son's teachers love it! My son now writes better than he speaks! Thanks to this app, I know more about him! Awesome!
Great app for emergent writers needing word banks, word prediction/word prediction, text to speech, spelling to support their ability to get word on "paper". The app also provides a feature to provide image support when writing.
The customizable keyboard, ability to display images to support generation of ideas provides additional possibilities for special needs students writing.
Thank you Intellipad!
