Melodic Based Communication Therapy (M.B.C.T.) Level 1 is an evidence based intervention designed by a speech language pathologist to help caregivers and therapists assist nonverbal and low verbal children (less than 10 words) with autism learn to speak. While designed for children with autism, the application may also be used to help young preverbal children learn new words. The application will assist in teaching children to say single words that many children learn first using research based melodies. The application contains 25 melodies, 25 colorful photos, a link to research on M.B.C.T., an outline of the steps involved in the process, and a method for tracking progress.

A Helpful App!
For those of you who have children who need help with speech or speech therapy this is an app that can be used by anyone. A great alternative to the traditional say and repeat method of speech therapy. There is no education or special skills needed to use this app, you just play the “picture/words” and have your child mimic the sound or the music sound they here. It’s extremely easy to use and the picture and words are simple, perfect for a child between the ages of 0-7 or maybe older if your child had severe speech delays. The only critique I would have with this app is that some of the words are hard to understand because the music is either over shadowing the woman’s voice or the quality of the sound is not good and is fuzzy. If you have a child who has speech needs, this is an awesome app for you.
I'm a speech therapist and I love using this app to facilitate speech productions and increasing language through verbalizations and/or signs. However, it constantly crashes and I can't get past apple or ball. It frustrates my clients so much. The other day when I tried to use it, it completely froze my iPad and I had to do a force shut down. Please fix it!!!!!! I need this app back in my therapy life!!
Good app, but...
This is a great app, but unfortunately it crashes every time I try to use it. I've had it since September and this issue has yet to be resolved. Disappointed because the kids I work with really seemed to enjoy it. Please fix this app!
