Finger Paint with Sounds offers a fun alternative to help childrenwith special needs and others to practice their first interactionswith a touch screen.

Using multi-touch gives a more obvious “cause andeffect” activity for some. Try turning off the sound and music tosee if the child needs auditory feedback or if they can see andenjoy the visual feedback alone. • Choose single-touch to encouragefinger pointing skills. • Choose multi-touch for maximum cause andeffect. • Bright feedback for children with visual impairments. •Save your best work to “Gallery”. • Choice of musical or sound-FXauditory feedback or none.
