EDA Play Apps

EDA play apps

EDA Play applications (apps) are designed to help train visual and motor skills in children.  All apps run on a regular size iPad, but not an iPad-mini, nor iPhone, nor iPod Touch.  The black background and bold contrasting colors may appeal to children with CVI (Cortical Visual Impairment).

There are currently three apps available from this Czech developer:

EDA Play Pauli

EDA Play Toby

The EDA Play Toby app is designed for children with visual impairments and multiple disabilities (VIMD) who are at a very young developmental age. The visual attention activities are designed for children functioning between 6 months and one year of age.  Activities work on simple cause and effect, whereby the child touches the screen to activate a sound, such as a musical instrument or an animal.

Available for FREE from the iTunes app store.
