App Review
Additional Description

Ready to Print is a fine motor and visual motor app that is suitable for children who are at a pre-writing stage, or in the early stages of writing. Activities progress through pre-writing skills in a developmental specific order to build on skills, e.g., simple shapes to more complex shapes, larger hand movements to smaller, more refined movements. It allows for multiple user profile settings to suit individual needs.

Great For
  • A strategy to teach a child prewriting tasks and activities.
  • Motivating a child to complete prewriting activities. The app provides lots of auditory and visual reinforcement as well as the ability to move through levels.
Please Consider
  • The verbal directions to complete tasks and activities can be quite complex and may be difficult to follow for children with receptive language issues. However, verbal directions may not be required to complete tasks.
  • Letters are taught in a print font. It is important to consider the font the child is learning at school. If they are learning a cursive font, the app may lead to confusion.
  • When the child completes something incorrectly a click sound is made and they can be asked to start over in certain tasks.
Generalise Skills and Knowledge
  • Use the app as a warm-up and in addition to other functional fine motor activities, e.g., drawing prewriting shapes in different material like shaving foam, sand and paper.
  •  Complete functional pinching activities in conjunction to the pinching app, e.g., with play dough.
