  1. We tested this app out yesterday and LOVED it. Great for body part reinforcement but really wonderful as a motivator. I love apps that require steps. Students are very motivated to complete a therapeutic activity or exercise and then use the iPad. Step by step games like this are quick and wonderful. Another great Toca Boca app.
