- Great DVD!
- We bought the Steps4Kids to write their ABCs for our son who has Autism and Sensory Integration Dysfunction. He had a great aversion to writing, partly due to his SID but also it didn't seem to interest him and he didn't find it fun. Because he was not practicing his letters, his writing was virtually illegible. His writing has hugely improved since we started using the DVD. By looking at the letter formation being demonstrated so clearly he was able to understand where the letters began and ended, how to keep within the lines and so on. Also, something we were very impressed with was the examples of how you can use letters to draw pictures - this has helped with stimulating my son's imagination - which is an area where he has challenges. I would highly recommend this DVD.
