Learn Handwriting Skills the Fun Way!
Ready to Print is created and maintained by an Occupational Therapist with over twenty-five years of experience working with children. It is a comprehensive tool for parents, therapists and educators to help teach pre-writing skills to children in order to build a strong foundation for beginning printers.
We continue working to make Ready to Print the most complete writing development iPad app available, and continue to add new features.
Ready to Print progresses through the pre-writing skills in a specific order, so that children can master the visual-motor, visual-perceptual, and fine motor skills necessary for correct printing patterns. It is designed to teach children the correct patterns for printing, and to avoid bad habits that are difficult to change as the child gets older.
Ready to Print features 194 separate levels in 13 activities. The latest addition is the Touch and Drag activity, which helps students work on movement in one of four specific directions.
- It provides activities for both pre-writing skills.
- It's designed with a progression of skills that work towards correct printing patterns.
- It allows you to change size settings to match each child’s skill level.
- It features a progression from larger hand movements to smaller, more refined movements.
- It lets you choose which activity and level to begin on.
- It allows setting up multiple user profiles, and remembers skill settings and tracks progress for each user.
- It allows you to send progress reports via e-mail directly from the app.
- It detects if you're using an iPad mini, and adjusts sensitivity automatically.
- Choose from either sound effects or new professionally performed voice prompts.
Ready to Print works on any iPad size. Requires iOS version 12 or higher.

Love this app
I use this app everyday during therapy sessions. The only thing I would love to change is the ability to turn off the sound for incorrect stimulus and leave the sound for correct answer
Developer Response ,
Hi Princesskarlin - Thanks for the note and review. Based on your comment and other feedback we've received, we're working on an update that will remove the negative audio feedback sound.
Also great for language
I use Ready to Print in therapy session for building language skills.
I am a pediatric school based occupational therapist and this app is exactly what I was looking for! It allows adjustments for size of borders for tracing, tracking progress for individual students, and provides a variety of visual motor integration tasks to prepare kids for writing. Keep in mind that this is a great supplement but dont get totally away from pencil and paper and hands on type of activities which are also important. The only thing I was a little surprised about was that the shapes to trace where not in developmental order, but that is minor. I will be using this app daily, and with my own kids too!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
