When We Say Personal Math Revolution, We Mean It!
We understand all minds are unique. That’s why we designed Todo Math to appeal and engage all different kinds of learners. With two different modes of play to choose from, no timed practice and multi-sensory games, children are empowered to take charge of their own learning experience. How cool is that!?

Here’s how we do it!
We offer:
• 18 multi-level games (and more in development) Number Tracing, Counting, Tallies, Cookies, Falling Blocks, Equation Maker, Word Windows, Patterns, Quick Addition, Quick Subtraction, Quick Multiplying, Quick Facts, Little Farm, Same or Different, Matrix, Days and Weeks, Train Time, and Ferris Wheel are all included.
• 31 curriculum-based missions for adventurous (and fidgety) players who need longer-sustained periods of learning.
• Two different modes of play: mission and free choice.
• Multiple means of representation. That’s a fancy way of saying we use clever digital manipulatives to convey math concepts in lots of different ways.
• 3 player profiles with progress reports included.
• Custom settings for lefties and kiddos with dyslexia.

screen480x480 (1) screen480x480 (3)

This award winning software assists in the understanding and growth of social skills in the areas of:

•Friendship/Life Skills
•Understanding Emotions
•Problem Solving
•Critical Thinking
•Perspective Taking

screen480x480 (2)

This type of interactive engagement produces a higher level of understanding and retention than passively watching video stories. Scores are tracked so that progress can be evaluated and a pause button at each video can stop the action at each teachable moment. This is wonderful for further spontaneous learning and expansion of skills presented in the app.

Social Skill Builder products are all designed by speech-language pathologists with an understanding of how to promote social learning successfully in individuals with such learning challenges as:

* Autism Spectrum Disorder
* Asperger Syndrome
* Traumatic Brain Injury
* Down Syndrome
* Attentive Deficit Disorder
* Other Learning and Language Deficits
