I recently had the opportunity to use the new iPad app, A Day with A Difference. It is a great interactive story book that teaches basic concepts. The main characters, Mr. Big and Mr. Small, guide you through a series of events where basic concepts are encountered in natural situations. For example, there was only one washer left at the laundromat, so Mr. Big and Mr. Small had to share. Oh no! Their clothes are all mixed up. Will you help them sort their clothes? My students loved the interactive games in this story! Basic concepts targeted include bigger and smaller, longer and shorter, same and different, more and less. After reading the story, there is an option to play bonus games. It was possible to collect a lot of data in a short amount of time during these games. Overall, this would be a good addition to your therapy tool box if you work with preschool aged children.
