"I definitely think this could be a good app for students practicing their fine motor skills. I also think this could be a beneficial tool for helping students with social skills. Students with ASD often struggle with social skills and having to wave at the camera to direct the animals is a form of social interaction. If they can take those skills and transfer them to working with classmates, it would be very beneficial."

"The target student for this app is one with physical delays, such as the inability to extend fingers to point and touch. This app is also great for students with autism and communication barriers."

"At $15 it is a little pricey, but is rated highly and focuses on developing such skills as communication, social skills, functional skills and language. It is also very interactive, and simple to use, especially in the touch-free mode. Children simply wave at the camera and easily help each animal board the bus while learning the animal’s name, how to spell it, and interact with each animal."

"A BuZoo Story is... targeted for students with autism and other motor-skills needs... Not only will this work on their motor skills, but they will also learn to recognize the animals names, learn how to spell the names of the animals, interact with the animals, hear their noises and find out basic information on each animal... well worth the cost."
---[ Mr. C's Education Tech Support ]
