Special Needs
				We want everyone to be able to play.
				Color Blind: You can distinguish the blue, red, and yellow snails, ladybugs, and homes by the shape of their little dots. That’s all you need to know.
				Non-Readers: Reading isn’t necessary to play. Tell your non-readers to lead Inch home. Obey the one-way signs. Eat the cherries. 
				Push the acorns out of the way. Push and pull the snails and ladybugs to homes that match their color. Or just let them figure it out.
				Autism Spectrum: Every child is different. It’s OK to lead Inch around all day long. There’s no timing involved. 
				The early puzzles are relatively easy. Later puzzles require planning. There’s always the “Go Back” and “Try Again” buttons.
				Mobility Impairments: You only need to tap on the squares to play. There’s no multi-touch or gestures. There’s no timing involved.
				The tap areas are about one-eight the width of the screen. Obviously things are bigger on the tablets. Tap “Go Back” if you occasionally miss.
				And please, let us know how it goes for you.
Our Philosophy
				Play is a big part of how kids learn. Our brains, like our muscles, need exercise and challenges. We’re here to help. White Pixels. Better games. Smarter kids.
				Good Clean Fun
				Inch Worm was designed with kids in mind. It’s safe, non-violent, and ad free. There are no in-app purchases. There are no links to outside content.
				White Pixels is a one-person company, with a good collection of volunteer helpers. 
				I’m a veteran software engineer with years of experience at Hewlett-Packard, Apple, Aplia, and Cengage Learning. 
				White Pixels is my retirement project. I love kids, and want to challenge them to stretch their brains. The more kids I can reach the better.
				I’m particularly interested in helping kids with special needs. Inch Worm was designed with them in mind. I’d love to hear how it’s helped your kids (or not).
