"Tiga Talk Speech Therapy Games", developed with licensed speech and language pathologists, is a fun way for children to develop speech sounds through playful voice-controlled games that can improve speech clarity, articulation, and instill confidence. The app is for parents and speech therapists working with toddlers and children with language delays, as well as any parent looking to give their child a head start in early language development.
Children learn fundamental phonetic sounds, that are the building blocks of language, as they play 23 fun voice controlled games on an imaginative adventure with Tiga and friends.
Gameplay rewards are based entirely on participation, not accuracy, so the child is constantly getting positive feedback as long as they are trying to make sounds!

Before each game children are introduced to a new phonetic sound by game characters. They are shown a cartoon image representing the sound and are encouraged to try saying the sound aloud. The app listens to make sure they’re verbally participating and congratulates them if they are and showers them with friendly encouragement if they aren’t.

Ratings and Reviews
Not what I was hoping for
Given voice recognition technology, I think this app is a fail. It has the child say certain sounds, for example /m/. However, the child can say any sound at all, and it praises the child for getting it right. I would recommend using voice recognition software so a child only gets it correct if he pronounces it correctly. However, my nephew who has a phonological disorder loved it, and as long as I was near him and could reinforce him myself or shape his productions, it was useful.
wish it worked
Got this for my son to encourage him to repeat sounds…and it does. but he can make any sound and it rewards him, not just the correct sound they are prompting. It worked fine for a few days until he completed the full run of lessons and games, and now (its been months actually) if we press play it crashes and goes back to the main screen on the iPad. we have to select menu and play the games individually. really annoying and EXTREMELY upsetting for my 2 year old.
Make sure you read what you are buying
It is a great app but it only works on sounds. You can say anything but the stimulus is at the phoneme level without the ability to repeat words. You have to tell your student what to say if you want words.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
