E has been using the Neo for a while and it's been a great tool for him. He brings it home frequently and we talk about what he's been writing. This is what he wrote today. (Tip: read it phonetically and you'll figure out what most of the words are.)

The Neo is doing what we hoped it would. He can keep up with writing assignments and not quit out of frustration with handwriting. The spelling gets corrected later in the process, and he doesn't have to worry about lagging behind.
(And yes, the 'plegolegints' is my favorite, lol.)
