I don’t talk about it much but I am the parent of two differently-abled kids. One of these children lives with high-functioning autism, ADHD, and Sensory Processing Disorder and sometimes he can be a challenge to teach. He doesn’t sit still for anything that isn’t exciting enough to catch and keep his attention, and one of the things that does that is games, specifically video games. Asking him to pick up a pencil will cause a meltdown but hand him a tablet with a game and he’ll play for hours.
OctoPlus is a perfect match for kids like mine. OctoPlus is an imaginative math game app available for iThings that takes your child to an underwater world where they have to battle turtles using their addition skills. Children learn during a drill mode and practice their skills with a challenge mode. OctoPlus starts on your child’s current level and works forward, meaning, it starts where your child is and grows with them!
Do you want to hear the best part? OctoPlus was designed specifically for kids with motor and cognitive delays. Fully customizable to your child’s motor, cognitive, and sensory needs, OctoPlus is revolutionary!
But you don’t have to take my word for it, check it out for yourself!
