IEP Goals :  ECC Games for Visually Impaired Students

IEP Education is our new organization where we are building ECC games for visually impaired students, based on each student’s Individual Educational Plan.
The student’s progression in learning skills in these ECC-based games and interactive simulations are maintained in a private secure cloud, available to the school IEP team  in a web-based console .
If you are a Special Ed Director , press for more details on learning about these types of games as part of maximizing student outcomes, relating to their 
504 school plan

Fan Mail

About once a week, I receive a nice email from people across the world thanking me for building these games.  Here’s are some recent comments:.

“Hi.  I would like to see more games that blind people can play make them more accessible with sound and talking so that we know what is happening.  I just tried blindfold pong and it is very good and challenging – I think it is great!”
“I’m a technology teacher for the visually impaired, and I recently heard the Applevis podcast that talks about the Blindfold Racer game.  I thought it was incredibly awesome on so many different levels!!  I enjoyed hearing about the therapy uses that you discussed.  But because I’m also legally blind since birth, and have sometimes dreamed of driving, I thought it was a totally, totally, incredibly liberating idea!!”
“Hi.  I love your games.  I’d love to see a Scrabble or a Bingo game for the IPhone.”
“Let me just start by saying that I’m a huge fan of your games and I’m happy to be able to play fully accessible card games for iOS.”
“So I have really been sharing and telling about the Blindfold Games. There is this page on Facebook where there are thousands and thousands of blind people into that group. I am a part of that group, and I posted to everyone about the Blindfold Games.”
“I wannnt to say how mutch I enjoy playing blindfold blackjack and poker! They are fun and easy to play and they are really good to play on my breaks .”
“Another great game and entertaining time waster. :)”
“I used to play this on Windows back in the day when I had vision. The other game I would love to see is something like Freecell, if you are familiar. I would definitely buy that as well.”
“This is my way of saying thank you for the games you have made available to those of us who are blind, but love to be in the mainstream of everything. I tell everyone I know, sighted or blind or otherwise, about your games. We appreciate them, and look forward to more. Monopoly, or something along that type of game line might be fun.”
Thanks to everyone for letting me know my time is well spent.
