Yes I Can! is an interactive series of computer programs for early learners and special education students. It is designed to improve a child's visual, auditory, communicative and cognitive skills. The programs teach basic mathematics concepts and pre-reading skills. The large colorful pictures and graphics and the verbal prompts encourage even the hardest to reach child to make eye contact, listen, and follow directions. It requires active participation and improves self esteem. The series teaches cause and effect, decision making, problem solving, and task completion. It helps children develop a sense of time and order. For the teacher or parent, preferences allow them to adjust various settings according to the child's needs: positive reinforcements, negative reinforcements, music, volume, number of questions from 5 to 25, and automatic advance.
