From A4cwsn: "This is wonderful for my young students who are working on imitating and following basic instructions."
Give the boy something to eat. He’ll even say “Thanks!” Touch the violin and it plays for you! Check out our Youtube video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EXCe1fETCnc
Fun with Directions Lite is a ground-breaking app for the iPAD, designed to provide a fun and engaging way to practice listening, following directions, working memory and the auditory processing of language. From the simplest of directions (“Touch the cat”) to the more complex (“Give the boy without a hat or glasses, something round that grows on trees and can be red or green.”) your child can grow and learn with this game over time. Colorful, vivid art and animations against a white background combine to create a complete game experience without visual clutter. Sound effects and surprises keep the game engaging! This app is a great choice for a toddler/preschooler, or any young child who would like to practice listening to or reading directions!
Included in the Lite version are two concepts: “give” and “touch.” It allows 2 users to have their data tracked, plus one guest user to play.
Features include settings for data tracking, automatic vs. manual advance to the next direction, touch/drag OR touch/tap option, text on/off, (to practice reading vs. listening) and the desired level of play: easy, intermediate, and advanced.
An added bonus that is included in this app is the optional “Superstar Direction” which allows additional practice for remembering (“What did you have to do?”) but also expressive language. The child’s response is recorded and played back. Superstar Directions are surprise questions that can be set to a variety of intervals, or turned off.

I am a speech therapist, mom, and strong advocate for parents. My son loved the lite version! The .99 version was well worth it! I would give it 5 stars but there is no way to change from 1-2-3 step directions. Love that you can turn words on and off. Would be great if you could delay the pictures (I.e. Direction then visuals!). This has such potential. $9.99 is too expensive for most parents though. Too bad there is not a professional versus home version. When or if you make those changes I will make sure that parents and colleagues know about the potential for this app. Awesome!
Despite ensuring that sound is selected in the settings, there is NO SOUND.
This lite version is well worth the .99 price tag! Clear concise directions, uncluttered backgrounds and engaging pictures help to make this an enjoyable app. It is easily adjustable to three levels. There are superstar directions that the child/student has to listen to, remember, complete then repeat the direction. Recording the student/child repeating the direction allows the child to hear themselves and then they can re-hear the direction so they can tell if they got it correct or not. The full version covers more concepts, but this is a great app to start with. Can track 3 different users in this version. Very versatile for a lite version!
