Where to Start
The activities move from easiest on the left to hardest on the right. Start with the Medium setting, and turn off the 8, 9, and 10+ letter words. The recommendations will guide you from there.
Make it Easier
Choose an activity on the left half of the home screen. Use the Easy setting and turn off all but the 3 and 4 letter words on the Settings tab.
Make it Harder
Choose an activity on the right half of the home screen. Use the Hard setting, and turn off the 3, 4, and 5 letter words on the Settings tab, leaving only 6+ letter words.
Use the Hint button when you’re stuck to narrow the options. If you find yourself using the hint a lot, step down in difficulty next time. Consider turning off the Show Score setting too.
Make it Personal
Add your own words to practice family names or other meaningful words. This allows you to work on focused spelling lists or train key words for other therapy approaches such as ACRT. Read more about ACRT here: https://tactustherapy.com/anagram-copy-recall-treatment-writing/
Write the word on paper 5 times after completing the activity with tiles. Cover the screen to stretch your memory. Record yourself saying the word with on-screen recording controls.
Move Your Way
Did you know you can drag the letters into place or just simply tap them? They’ll fill in the blank spaces from left to right when you touch them.
Hear the Letters – or Not
Many people benefit from hearing the letter names as they touch the letters, but for others, this can be distracting. Change the Sounds setting to hear touch-confirming clicks or no sound at all.
This app can speak English (North American), English (UK), French, German, & Spanish – change your device language for localized menus & reports, or just select the exercise language in the Settings.
Use Reading to Help Writing
The reason this app has a Check button is to allow you to read your answer, decide if it’s correct, and change it if you want. This builds self-monitoring and self-correction skills.
