Play Tip!

To help children with fine motor delays learn to control the cursor, try attaching the Touch Screen over a monitor placed at lap height within 12-24 inches from the child. The child should be able to control the cursor more comfortably then at standard table height. Try pairing the Touch Screen with point and click software for cognitively young users. The easy action of these games allows the new user time to build skills, but still offers rewarding play experience.
