Is It Any Good?

Rainbow Sentences is an intuitive app with many accommodations for kids with learning difficulties. It offers kids a multisensory approach with room to grow as they achieve mastery. Using pictographs helps kids who need visual cues when trying to put together a group of words. Using color coding is especially helpful for kids who have difficulty with determining word order. Kids who are new to the app will need some guidance to get started.

Graphics could be more appealing, as they appear too simple and childish when used with older kids who may still need assistance making sentences. As the levels become more difficult, it would be nice to see sentences that relate to the real world to help kids with their social skills.

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.
