Good Free App of the Day: Tap That Pic! Top app for teaching word discrimination and early language!

I've just recently found out about Tap That Pic! and I'm excited to share it with others. This app has in-app purchases, but there are two free sets of pictures, giving a lot of activity options for free. The premise is simple--tap the picture that is requested. It can be set in Easy mode, where the app teaches the name of the desired goal. Either way, even with just the free content, TapThatPic is a great app to have for all speech-language pathologists.

To get tapping with Tap That Pic! please support Smart Apps For Special Needs and use our download button (iPad/iPhone, FREE with in-app purchases):

From iTunes:
Beautiful graphics, original artwork, soothing music and encouraging feedback make this shape-matching game an engaging and educational tool for children from 1.5 - 4 years old. 

"Tap That Pic is beautifully designed. It’s simple and is what is purports to be: a flashcard game. We liked the bright colours, the audio and the idea of the game."
