How I Use It
The app is really intuitive. I sit next to my student and give them prompts if necessary, but typically my students enjoy the game and easily understand the task they are supposed to complete. I do not use this app to teach the skill. Instead, once they have mastered the skill of counting, or counting a specific item from a larger field, I use the app as one way to test for generalization.
My Take
I love using this app for early learners with autism or PDD. It is differentiated and easy to find a level that is appropriate for your student. It also gives students another opportunity to respond they make an error.
