Top Speech Apps for Child with Microcephaly


We have a discussion on our Facebook Fan Page twice a day.  Kari's question resulted in two apps being recommended by our followers to help with a 3 year old with microcephaly's speech.

Kari asked: Curious if anyone in this group has a child with microcephaly and if you have found any apps that would help a 3 year old with mircocephaly with speech? Thank you!

SmallTalk Phonemes by Lingraphica
***FREE*** (iPhone and iPad)

This app has videos that help with the production of the phonemes in the English language.

From iTunes:
"These articulation videos allow people with apraxia, aphasia, and/or dysarthria resulting from stroke or head injury to easily practice the English phonemes as often as they like. Because each exercise comes as an individual video, you can focus on just the phonemes you want to practice and repeat them as many times as you like."

Cas and her kids love to play with speech and language. Here is a tongue twiter her son made up:

Silly Sally Saucer saw a sore sailor, sailing on his ship in the sapphire sea.
