While telling about SnapType, Ben Said:

“Amberlynn came up with the idea for SnapType during her occupational therapy graduate fieldwork. She worked with a 5th grade student diagnosed with dysgraphia, a learning disability that made his handwriting extremely messy,”“His occupational therapist tried many things to help him improve his penmanship, but nothing worked. The determined occupational therapist even scanned his worksheets into a computer so he could type in answers to questions, but it was too time consuming so she stopped doing it. He was frustrated about getting left behind in class because he couldn’t complete the worksheets with the rest of his peers.”

SnapType is very simple and easy to operate. Students can send the homework to their teachers directly by completion. Kids can export their homework and send it by email or any other file sharing system to the teachers.
