This app is designed by an Occupational Therapist to help children with physical or learning disabilities identify where keys are on the keyboard, then learn to type and spell.
Typing tutors assume the child already knows how to read and spell, and are more concerned with correct fingering. Most standard keyboards come with upper case letters, while children are learning to read with lower case letters. “Miss Sue’s Keyboard Fun” is different. It is designed to encourage children to learn the placement of keys on the keyboard, by matching keys to pictures, and to be rewarded with sight and sound.
This program is compatible with both on-screen keyboards, and with standard, BigKeys© or Chester Creek© keyboards. Each keyboard line may be selected, and the child asked to match the letter. Letters can be presented in order, or at random. Display all the letters on the line, or just the letter to be matched as desired. Color each line, or color for left and right hands.
