Special Needs App of the Day: iWriteWords

iWriteWords teaches your child to write using whimsical sounds and graphics. The way to play is to help Mr. Crab collect all the numbers in sequence on the screen by tracing them with your fingers. As the numbers are traced, a letter appears. Once all the letters in a word are made, a cute drawing appears that illustrates the word. Drawings are done in a bright and childlike style.

There are over 70 levels of words, and kids will love playing the game so much they won’t realize how much they are learning at the same time. iWriteWords was an Apple staff favorite and voted “one of the best phone apps for kids” by the New York Times. It has proven useful for children with autism to increase fine motor skills, learn to recognize words and numbers, and even improve recognition of cause and effect.

iWriteWords is available on iPhone and iPad for $2.99.
