Does your child get his b’s and d’s mixed up? How about her p’s and q’s? LetterReflex provides a fun way to help overcome common letter reversals. The first activity, Tilt It, uses kinesthetic learning to teach left from right. The second activity, Flip It, allows them to practice what they learned while honing their letter discrimination skills.More @ http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/letterreflex-overcoming-letter/id485920074?mt=8
Tilt It: Teach Left from Right using Kinesthetic Learning
According to research, a key reason for letter reversals is not knowing left from right, and as a result kids get confused when trying to discriminate between a “b” and a ‘d” or a “p” and a “q”. They’re not quite sure which side the letter loop should go on.
Our Tilt It activity uses kinesthetic learning techniques to help kids map their left side/right side to correct letter formation. They will learn the correct position of letter loops by being challenged to tilt the device in the correct direction to form letters.
Designed for fun as well as education, Tilt It is a maze game that gets progressively more difficult as the learner succeeds at each level.
With practice, they will form an instinctive correlation between letter formation and left side/right side.
Flip It: Practice Letter and Word Discrimination
Using arcade game action, Flip It challenges kids to visually discriminate and manipulate letters and words to match the correct orientation. The activity will help hone their visual discrimination skills and further cement their knowledge of correct letter and word formation.
Both activities are designed to be repeatable and engaging, and when used on a regular basis will help address the problem of letter reversals.

Great app *****
Easy to use and very motivating. I was surprised how well it works on the iPhone screen. An excellent tool for fine motor practice, and would be great for teaching pre-writing skills.
Thank you *****
Thank you for creating a great app and for being a part of A4CWSN!!! My daughter loves it and I'm happy she is getting some help with fine motor. She hasn't been well enough to attend OT and I was afraid she'd regress but not with your help! Thanks again!
great fine motor app *****
