Before having children and getting involved in my son's speech therapy, I assumed conversation skills came naturally to everyone. Little did I know how difficult holding a back and forth conversation can be for many people; my son included. For children working on this skill, Conversation Builder by Mobile Education Store LLC is a must have app.
This app helps children develop natural back and forth exchanges. It allows the children to either initiate conversation or respond to someone else. There are many customization aspects available, from selecting who initiates the conversation, what module the child uses, as well as how many exchanges will be made in the conversation.
As children build their conversation, they are prompted to record their part of the conversation. At the end of a conversation, they are able to listen to the full, uninterrupted conversation of their recordings combined with the prerecorded side of the dialog. This allows the children to hear the natural flow of the complete conversation.
This app is great for parents, teachers, or therapists to use with children working to converse at an elementary level. The easy to use interface, along with in-app instruction,s make it so a parent with no speech therapy background can use it correctly with confidence. However, the entire concept and ability to create multiple profiles make it an invaluable tool to therapists and educators as well.

ConversationBuilder™ (Pat. Pend.) is designed to help elementary aged children learn how to have multi-exchange conversations with their peers in a variety of social settings.
The auditory pattern of conversation is presented in a visual format to help students recognize and master the flow of conversation. Students will learn when it is appropriate to introduce themselves, ask questions, make observations and change the subject of the conversation.
