iOT Session App

iOT Session is a new iPad app (2.99) developed by Dr. Frederick Covington OTD. It addresses fine motor/dexterity, visual perceptual, visual scanning, visual tracking and handwriting/letter formation skills. Tasks are measured, timed or scored with data  saved for each user for comparison over time. An unlimited number of users can be entered.

Here is a video providing an overview of the tasks included in the app:

Have you used this app? I have not had a chance yet, however appears to be for primary aged students  in Kindergarten thru 1st grade from the content presented. I hope to have a chance to test this out and explore the type of levels it might have.

Share if you have had any experience with the app.

    I have just started using it and it’s pretty easy to use so far. I think it would work out great for progress monitoring. I’m not fond of the fine motor section though. It’s very hard for the kids. I also wish there was a way to change the activities per age group or grade level. I also don’t like the handwriting section… it’s too picky and not the style i like to use. However I do love the visual sections!

    • Kim,
      Thank you for sharing your experience with the app. Handwriting styles are a tricky thing as schools identify (hopefully) one method of handwriting and selection of apps that support that style are necessary. Share your suggestions with the developer and hopefully those changes will be considered to make it a more universal app.
      Thank you Kim!

    Hi Carol,
    I am an occupational therapist that primarily works with elementary school students. I have found the app to be of great benefit and have even printed out reports for IEP meetings and discussions with parents. As compared to other apps that I have used, I find that this one is a bit more thorough and covers areas where I often see deficits. Thanks for highlighting the app, I think it can be very useful in the hands of school-based occupational therapist as well as parents.
