Do you work with students who have difficulty with letter reversals and identifying left versus right?
Binary Labs, creator of Dexteria app have created LetterReflex App which focuses on remediating reversals of letter and in words and right and left discrimination. Games focusing on discriminating directionality of letters such as b and d are included. Skills focused on include activities reinforcing left and right using a kinesthetic approach which require tilting the iPad to the left and right when forming a letter.
LetterReflex also collects data on student performance.
Compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad, this app currently is 1.99 as an introductory special.
Thanks to Gail for sharing this new app! Another treatment activity for your OT iTool kit!

This looks great! Thx for sharing!
You bet! Share a comment with how it is working with you student. I just evaluated a student recently that this app as well as one of the Dexteria activities should work well with and perhaps collect some data!
Wish it was available for Android! I don’t think it would work well on my tiny ipod touch…
