Injini Child Development Game Suite App

Thanks to Molly Shannon for mentioning this app in the Lite version in one of her comments. I had seen this app but shied away from it due to the cost (49.99) not realizing that it came in a Lite-free version. Thank you Molly!

Injini Child Development Game Suite is an app available only for iPad (Lite/49.99) for early childhood aged students with or without special needs. Skills focused on in the app include:

  • Fine motor/visual motor
  • Cause and effect
  • Spatial awareness
  • Memory
  • Visual discrimination and matching
  • Response inhibition
  • Visual processing
  • Sequencing
  • And more….

Watch a video demonstrating Injini’s app activities:

Tasks presented are at a very basic level. It has some option settings including chosing darker colored layout for greater contrast, male or female voice and a count down from 3 to start the activity presented. Many of the activities are leveled providing a method  to grade or track skill of the student. It provides positive reinforcement after successful completion of the activity.  Tutorials are also provided with in the app demonstrating how the tasks works.

The app also provides the model of show me and then do within the activities to help children understand how to perform activity.  Although expensive, it does provide a wide variety of early childhood visual motor, visual memory, sequencing activities for students in a clean and easy to use format. The Lite Injini version provides partial access to the activities (3 out of the 9 leveled activities) for you to trial or use. Letters are not provided in the Lite version

Check it out or trial the Lite version. Will this be one of the apps in your OT iTool kit?
