Crazy Gears app with CVI settings
While using the Crazy Gears app with my typically-sighted 4 year old son, I discovered that it has a built-in “cortical visual impairment option” that allows the color scheme to be changed according to a child’s CVI color preferences. The app is $1.99 with no in-app purchases; recommended for ages 5-9.
App description: “Explore a captivating digital playground in this tantalizing puzzle game! Children manipulate gears, chains, rods, and pulleys, to pull themselves through each level, which teaches them how different mechanisms affect one another when constructing a machine. Each reasoning challenge was carefully designed to adhere to the theories of educational technology pioneer, mathematician, computer scientist, and designer of the first programming language for children, Seymour Papert.”
