TacScreenTM RELEASES NEW iPad APP,
The perfect companion to the TacScreenTM product line
[Portland, OR, November 7, 2019] TacScreenTM, developer of the TacScreenTM Tactile Learning Screen for touchscreen devices, including Apple, Microsoft, and Google products, has unveiled the TacScreen-Trace2Learn Letters app at the 2019 International Dyslexia Association Annual Conference this week.
The TacScreen-Trace2Learn Letters app is the perfect complement to TacScreenTM’s Tactile Learning Screen as it reinforces the benefits of multi-sensory learning by joining the proven benefits of sight, sound, and touch while teaching children how to read and write.
The TacScreen-Trace2Learn Letters app gives parents and educators a positive opportunity to introduce children to the primary fundamentals of reading. TacScreen has accomplished this by creating an exciting learning environment where children are encouraged to practice letters of the alphabet in addition to long and short vowel sounds. This intuitive sequence of multi-sensory learning is enacted through the use of cheerful sounds and music, letter tracing, proper pronunciation, corresponding vivid images, and rewarding incentives that target the needs of hands-on early learners.
During a recent interview with Central Valley Today, TacScreenTM creator, Susan Mon Pere said “TacScreen [Tactile Learning Screen] helps utilize a different sense. We are used to using an app where you are hearing, seeing and touching the information on a flat surface but with TacScreenTM you receive a tactile feedback through fingertip stimulation -- just another sense you get to use. They [Educators] have been using tactile learning for years. If you go into any preschool you will see the sand tray or the tactile letters and TacScreenTM is just bringing that [multi-sensory stimulation] to the iPad.”
Susan’s children have helped in the development of TacScreen on many levels. In particular, her son Patrick Mon Pere has been involved with TacScreen-Trace2Learn Letters and had this to say during that same interview, “It [TacScreenTM Tactile Learning Screen] helped because it is an extra sense you are using while studying.” The newly released app is a fantastic learning extension of the previous products, and is enabling children to better grasp and process letter identification.
The TacScreen-Trace2Learn Letters app is available for purchase for $3.99 on the Apple iTunes App Store. For more information, visit: https://www.tacscreen.com/pages/trace2learn-letters-ipad-app
TacScreenTM is dedicated to the importance of multi-sensory learning and early intervention during the educational process.
Susan Mon Pere, wife, mother of 3, and the creator of TacScreenTM, originally identified the need for tactile learning on tablets when one of her children was diagnosed with dyslexia, ADHD and auditory processing issues. During this educational journey they were introduced to the importance of tactile learning and began the pursuit of adding a bumpy surface to touchscreen devices, beginning with the iPad.
Backed by strong reviews from those in the field, TacScreenTM is continually recommended as a fundamental learning tool for “all children, with or without a learning difference”.
