BridgingApps, a site that focuses on using technology to help those with special needs, was kind enough to perform a trial with their students using "Simplex Spelling HD - Dolch Sight Words" and they have posted their review. Please stop by and check out the great BridgingApps site.
"This app has a great feature that allows the student to press the "hint" button and each letter sound is given to the student as well an audio button that repeats the word the student is spelling."
"We have used this app with students with Autism spectrum disorders, who are functioning between a kindergarten and second grade grade-level. Every student enjoys positive reinforcement and this app provides a word of encouragement after each word is mastered. It also allows teachers and students to see the list of words mastered, as well as words that they have yet to master and still need to work on."
"This is a great app to change up the day-to-day routine of practicing Dolch words, increasing vocabulary and promoting independence."

It is easy to navigate and includes plenty of in-app assistance for parents or teachers customizing the app or children using it to improve their spelling. Color choices used in the design of the app are very pleasing, as are the sound effects and narration."
