Do you have a child that needs practice with answering wh- questions? Many children struggle with answering questions that begin with who, what, when or where. For a limited time only, Speech Pups has reduced the price of their Questions2Learn app from $9.99 to $4.99. This would be a perfect time to grab an app that will help with these question words. The app can be customized with different settings and personalized pictures. The adorable pups, Moca and Dakota, will reinforce a child's answers throughout the app. Don't miss out on this price reduction!

Questions2Learn was designed by Leanne Pool, a certified Speech Language Pathologist. The app benefited her students in therapy sessions, and I believe it can benefit many more. It is a clean simple format that asks a question and allows a child to choose an answer between pictures. There is also a level without pictures that a child can answer aloud, and then an adult can choose "Well Done" or "Try Again," based on the child's response. One of the two dogs come up after every question to reinforce the answer given. 

The settings can be changed for each child with four different levels to choose from and the option for verbal or visual reinforcement or both to be used. Questions can be customized by adding in pictures that are more relevant for the child.  Questions are categorized by school, home, food & drinks, community, leisure/recreational, and health. All categories can be chosen or one can be focused on at a time for a student. 

Questions2Learn also provides data on how a child answers certain type of questions. This data can be used to help drive instruction and to adjust settings in the app. A child could use it on their own for practice, as the data collection is provided for adults to follow up. I would suggest this app be used with an adult, so vocabulary can be incorporated with the pictures, as the picture names are not stated, but it is easy to use for a parent, older sibling, teacher, or anyone to use. It does not just need to be used in a therapy setting. If you work with a child that struggles with answering wh- questions, this app is definitely worth a look, and what better time than when it is reduced in price!

From iTunes:
Questions2Learn helps students understand and learn how to answer functional who, what, where, and when questions. The Speech Pups, Moca and Dakota, will reinforce your students while they answer questions! Choose a category that you want to answer questions from: school, home, food & drinks, health, community, and leisure/recreational.

Questions2Learn was created by Leanne Pool, a certified speech language pathologist. Many of Leanne’s students have difficulty using their verbal abilities and/or have significant cognitive weaknesses. These students benefited from using Questions2Learn during therapy sessions. 

Questions2Learn will save you time when creating activities that target answering questions. Customize your own categories of questions by typing questions that are specific for the activities you are planning. This customized feature allows you to upload images from your photo library, take pictures using the camera, and record your voice.

Another great feature of Questions2Learn is the option to modify the picture choices for each pre-programmed question. If the pre-programmed pictures are not what you would choose, you have the ability to modify them. You can either upload a picture from your photo library, take a picture, or choose a different picture from the pre-programmed picture library.

Questions2Learn allows you to adjust each student’s settings so you can work on their individual needs that change often. The data collection feature will save you time and make collecting data much easier.
