'Dinosaur letters', was developed in part to support students who learn 'whole' words rather than phonetically. The strategy of teaching cursive writing from the beginning in reception is, in part to help students with dyslexia. Cursive writing for children with dyslexia is useful as it involves more 'muscle memory', greater flow and avoids having to re-learn letters in cursive.
A surprise hit in our cursive app was the letter blending section where children can run their finger along the word allowing them to hear the blend. It's one of the things we felt our own children needed and we will definitely develop upon in our next cursive app for the 5+ age.
