If you're still not convinced, read some of our testimonials:

“I work with a range of ages, from Early Intervention through developmentally challenged students in high school. And I must say, it has become one of my ‘go to’ tools for many of the children in my practice. I highly recommend it.” - Cynthia James, M.A. CCC-SLP, Midland Park, NJ

“I was able to pick up the app and instantly use it to drill my little girl on all three /k/ sets.  SpeechBox worked beautifully and exactly as intended.  She enjoyed the pictures and interface.  It is the only speech therapy app I have found to be that useful with my daughter. Best speech therapy app I've laid hands on so far.” - Dala, M.A., CCC-SLP (Testy yet trying Blogger, Author)

“Students with Apraxia require such repetitive practice in order to learn the motor movements for speech, making it very important to select words that kids will practically use throughout their day. SpeechBox has done just that. With beautiful pictures and a very thoughtful approach to selecting target words, SpeechBox is able to go beyond your typical articulation app in meeting the needs of children with diverse speech challenges.” - Katherine Kelley, M.A., CCC-SLP ( Blogger)

SpeechBox was developed by a Dad of two children with Childhood Apraxia of Speech with professional support from Nicole Gerber, MA, CF-SLP. Learn more at

This is one of the most versatile apps that I have found to use with my speech/language therapy clients. The ease with which you can create tasks customized to address specific skills and/or specific client needs makes planning therapy lessons a breeze. I and 7 of the SLPs that work in my school disrict have all purchased this app. This is our "go to" app. I have personally created and added, within the app, 180 specific skill boxes addressing articulation, language, and/or fluency goals. The feature that allows sharing of any boxes created through a simple e-mail link is a great feature. My elementary and middle school clients ask for SpeechBox by name during therapy sessions. They love the ability to move the cards and search through a box to choose their own task card. They also take great pleasure in "throwing away" a card once they have successfully responded to the card they chose. I also really like it that if an incorrect response is given I can pinch the card and have it remain in the box for a second chance response. The skills that can be taught in speech/language therapy using this app are limited only by your own imagination. I can't say enough about how practical, fun, and user friendly this app is. And, I have yet to find an app with better app support.

Great App & Update!


I've been using this app for over a year now with my clients of varying ages. (The perks of being a SLP at an outpatient clinic, I see everyone from EI to geriatric.) I feel like the $20 for all of the phonemes and various categories up front has been a great investment, but now the ability to add new boxes has got me super excited. I've already picked up the prepositions and action words boxes - having the app do the work for me is such a great timesaver. I will probably pick up the blends boxes next since I have a few clients working on those goals now.

Overall a great app, and I love the customization features the most. I'm able to make a box for each client that comes through and the kids really get a kick out of opening the app and finding their own "box" to play with. I would love to see where else this app goes in the future and hope they start adding more to their suite of super user friendly speech apps!
