I am a mom to several special needs children – of course their needs are varied but each struggles with math. Octoplus (by Zyrobotics) is a math adaptation of Turtle Invaders, a 2014 Gold Winner of the Mom’s Choice Award for Best in Family-Friendly Products. OctoPlus reinforces key math skills within an interactive gaming environment. OctoPlus places the child in an underwater water world where they have to battle turtles using their math addition skills to score points to be used in the OctoStore.
With both a drill and challenge mode, children’s math skills are improved based on their own individual learning ability. OctoPlus is also designed to enhance motor skills for young children and kids with motor or cognitive delays. With a phenomenal ability to set options, this app will keep kids motivated and engaged. The app is designed to improve visual attention, timing, coordination and control. Parents can also use this switch-accessible app to reinforce Individualized Education Program (IEP) goals.
I totally appreciate the ability to reinforce IEP goals at home!
Fully customizable settings can adjust math options based on the skill level of your child and there is a Parent Zone allowing parents and teachers to stay connected to the child’s progress. If your child has motor limitations it can be switch-accessible. It helps kids master common core math skills through the use of drills, practice, challenges and more in a fun and engaging way. The levels are designed to build confidence, improve hand eye coordination and fine motor skills with graphics and music that can be graded to sensory sensitive children.
