A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Kids will learn that writing independently is not only possible but easier than they had thought it could be. If they struggle with paper and pencil, kids can turn to a keyboard that works for their needs and begin getting comfortable using it to express themselves. They can create original writing and communicate it via Facebook and/or email to work successfully with teachers, family, and friends. Panther Writer lets kids work beyond barriers by offering a wide variety of keyboards and typing and writing alternatives.
Ease of Play
The Panther Writer interface is very intuitive, and there's lots of support. Some trial and error will help optimize each keyboard.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Panther Writer is a very powerful yet intuitive keyboard-based writing tool for kids who may not be best-served by the standard QWERTY keyboard. Kids will explore all four writing keyboards, access methods and other options, and select those that work most efficiently for them. They can then be further customized to their specific needs and abilities, and many kids with limited mobility or issues with fine motor control or cognition will find writing easier than ever before.
Is It Any Good?
PANTHER WRITER is full of innovative access options. It's simple, intuitive, and very powerful and is one of most affordable access tools available for kids with a variety of special needs from autism to cerebral palsy. Although it takes a little trial and error to set up the ideal keyboard for your kid, it's worth it. Panther Writer is a unique tool and must be tried to be appreciated.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
