Ratings and Reviews
Play & Learn
My 3 year old loves spelling words (level III) and receiving the golden stars after building his list. It's easy for him to navigate through all the features. This app makes it feel more like play than learning to him. I definitely recommend this app to others.
Great game for spelling/phonics
My four year old son loves to play Word Wagon. He has learned to spell many new words while having fun doing it.
Very useful tool to help autistic children learn to talk
Duck Duck Moose puts out some very nice apps at a wholesale price....Word Wagon is no exception.
Fish School and Itsy Bitsy Spider are home runs if you haven't checked them out.
Word Wagon is a unique drag n drop spelling app because it teaches phonics at the same time as spelling / letters.
The app visually illustrates which letters of the word make up the phonic while emphasizing each sound.
I can't express how useful this app could be for an autistic child. It is extremely difficult to help moderate to severe autistics make visual / auditory connections surrounding speech...largely because they avoid eye contact with everyone all the time. This app is no miracle cure, but I know for a fact that my son has learned the alphabet and numbers 1-20 through the itunes store. He has gained self confidence and an innate ability to navigate electronics (at least those designed by apple).
Yes, this app is in iphone low resolution, but who cares? It is a useful tool for a child, not a movie.
If you haven't already, buy your autistic toddler a numberless 32gb iphone, a 64gb first gen ipad and this app from Duck Duck Moose.
It's the cheapest, most effective private language school for autistics that you're ever going to find. Your child is worth it.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
