It's extremely fun for my 4 year old with classic autism and the easiest app for me to customize!" - from parent review âœ©âœ©âœ©âœ©âœ© "I would highly highly highly recommend this app" - WelcomeToTheirWorld app reviews âœ©âœ©âœ©âœ©âœ© "I have recommended Touch and Write to all my colleagues and parents. I think it is fabulous! My students do not get frustrated and quit. They are able to focus for extended periods of time and I get to make my own target list. Thanks for this great app." - Speech Therapist in California âœ©âœ©âœ©âœ©âœ© "I just wanted to tell you about my session with my student today using 'Touch and Write.' He is a kindergarten student... he resists writing and acts out to avoid it. Today I showed him the 'Touch and Write' program... he was totally attentive for 30 minutes, quickly learned to move between the different writing textures and understood the use of the 'little monster' to make the letter correctly." â€“ Teacher âœ©âœ©âœ©âœ©âœ© "The k and 1st grade kids are really engaged! One of them worked for 15 minutes - the most we have seen him do in weeks." - Teacher

Kids love learning to write - especially when they can use shaving cream, paint, and jello!

"Touch and Write" uses a letter style similar to those most commonly taught in schools, so it prepares children for a real classroom. "Touch and Write" also allows you to create your own lists of names and words so that you can individualize the learning experience for your child!

âœ°Children practice a letter style similar to those most commonly taught in real classrooms
