    Identified Special Needs Challenges:
    "I purchase the Hot Dots pen for my 7 year old son who has Aspergers. This has become one of his favorite activities. He has a bit of trouble having conversations with and usually only wants to talk about what he is interested in and he wants to carry the bulk of the conversations. Hot Dots has opened up a new line of communication for us. It allows me to have dialogue with him and he actually will talk about what I want to talk about. I am able to use the cards to ask him questions about other info he knows. An example would be for the cards dealing with money. He can use the card and the pen to answer what a particular coin is called but then I can continue that with a conversation about what the coin is worth, who is on the coin, how they were important in American history, etc. It really is so exciting to see him start to have the ability to have an actual conversation with me. I am so happy that I found the Hot Dots pen and I know it will continue to be used by our family for many years to come."

    Great learning tool!
    Posted 3/6/2013 by Melissa Moss

    Purchase the Hot Dots pen for my 7 year old son. He has it in his class at school and talked about it frequently so I thought he would probably enjoy having access to one at home too. He absolutely LOVES using this and I love that he is learning while having fun. As soon as he gets home from school he asks to use the Hot Dots pen and will spend over an hour going through the different card sets. The pen does have a little bit of a learning curve as far as the position it needs to be held for it to work properly but it doesn't take long to get it right. It is also great that it just uses regular batteries so they are easy to replace. Although after many hours of use I still haven't had to replace them. I also purchased several of the card sets that you use with the pen. I love that there are so many options of cards and I know that he will be using the Hot Dots pen for many years to come.
