Articulation Games

 Articulation Games is a comprehensive, flexible, and fun speech-therapy, iPad app that was created by a certified speech and language pathologist for children to practice the pronunciation of over forty English phonemes, organized according to placement of articulation. It includes thousands of real-life flashcards, accompanied by professional audio recordings and capability of audio recording. 
Articulation Games takes drilling with flashcards to the next level by incorporating gaming components and a reward system. Children will have fun practicing phonemes by playing four different and flexible games: 
 1. Flashcards 
2. Memory game 
3. Sweet Spinner: Children will spin the colorful spinner to get a flashcard or a surprise animated candy that actually pours down from the spinner tube. 
4. Artic Wheel: Children will spin the wheel to get a flashcard or a reward (an animated pet). 
5. Articulation Games allows children to practice different phonemes in all positions of words, and at all levels of difficulty (word, short phrase, and sentence level) in ALL of the games. 

(iPad only, $34.99 to 29.99)

Auditory Processing Studio

Auditory Processing Studio was created by a certified speech and language pathologist for adults and children ages 7 and up who exhibit Central Auditory Processing Disorder or other auditory processing disorders. This research-based app implements the bottom-top approach to treatment of auditory processing disorders and focuses on improving auditory processing through auditory discrimination, auditory closure, and phonological awareness activities. Users can also introduce background noise to help children or adults practice their listening skills in a noisy environment.  

(iPad only, $29.99 to $24.99)

 Apraxia RainbowBee

The Apraxia RainbowBee app is a multi-step, multi-modality program with colorful graphic, photo, audio, and video targets and fun engaging games. The program is designed to help enhance motor planning for children with an apraxic component that impacts their speech production. 

The Apraxia RainbowBee app gives therapists the flexibility not only to choose between three levels of complexity but also to manipulate the prompting of visual, auditory, tactile, and lexical stimuli presented to the child. The therapists are also able to choose their targets and the amount of stimulus trials at each level. In addition to using hundreds of photos and video recordings included in this app, the therapists can add their own images and record their own videos, making speech therapy more individualized.   

(iPad only, $26.99 to $19.99)

Verbal Reasoning

Description Verbal Reasoning is an iPad app created by a certified speech and language pathologist for adults and children ages 12 and up. Verbal Reasoning targets reasoning and critical thinking skills, challenging users with over 1000 stimuli. 

This colorful and engaging app allows speech and language pathologists and educators to set a reward system when working with children to make therapy more fun and motivating. The children are rewarded with puzzle pieces, and when they accumulate enough pieces they can do various puzzles. This feature can be turned off when working with adults.  

(iPad only, $12.99 to $7.99)
