Ratings and Reviews
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.
Good learning tool
Finally a speech therapy tool with nice graphics! It's easy to use and it's nice that it includes ASL signs. The only complaint I have is that it gives the child the answer right away when they get it wrong, so they can just pick random things the first time. I would like to be able to change the settings so that they have to try finding it themselves a few times before it gives them the answer.
Great Speech Language app!
I’m a speech-language pathologist who uses this app on a daily basis with my kiddos. They love Maxi Monkey & so do I! He keeps the kids engaged & they look forward to giving Maxi a high five every time. The app reinforces simple sign language as well as functional language skills. In addition, the kids learn to identify objects(foods) as well as learn new vocabulary words & build critical thinking skills (I know that’s an apple so the other food item Maxi wants must be the radish). The app also helps teach basic pointing skills. What I love best about this app though is that most of my kids spontaneously communicate verbally or with sign during game play, even those kids who never had a single word! Something about that monkey...
