Reviews from Parents and Professionals
“There is a particular pleasure in being able to discover and show parents something which neither I nor they were aware that their child could do, this has happened more than once! Match & Find is a welcome addition to our toolkit.”
Hilary Stock, Computer Specialist at The Champion Centre in New Zealand.
“A number of principles that have been followed to ensure that Match & Find works well for children who might find other educational apps overwhelming or inaccessible. Their success is what makes this such a well-rounded and useful app.”
Educational App Store, 5 Star Teacher Rating
“Lucy, my daughter, is 9 years old with significant development delays. The difficulties with her fine motor skills have greatly delayed some of her development, particularly with short-term memory. Lucy took to this app quickly. I saw her improve after just one session. She now uses the app daily for between 15 to 20 minutes and continues to make good progress.”
