An Auditory Verbal Therapy tool to address the detection and comprehension of the Ling 6 Sounds (plus silence) for individuals with hearing aids or cochlear implants. This app is designed for therapists to use as an engaging, quick auditory comprehension check in therapy sessions but may also be used for home practice by parents or individuals who have hearing aids or cochlear implants. The flashcards depict the 6 Ling sounds (and silence) which represent the range of speech sounds across low to high frequencies. These sounds are a quick way to ensure that you or your child has auditory access to the most basic speech sounds necessary for detecting and understanding speech. Silence is included as a way to reduce the chance that an individual may be guessing a response when they don’t hear a sound. The app includes a male voice, female voice, and the ability to record your own voice. To track progress, after each practice session a data chart of correct and incorrect responses is available with space to type your own notes and print or email the results. Designed by a Licensed Speech-Language Pathologist with Auditory Verbal Therapy training.

Great app

I have no idea what's wrong with other reviews. My son's doctor gave us the exact same flash cards to work with him. It's nice to have an app like this on his iPad. Great app, does exactly what it is supposed to do! We'll worth $4. App Store needs more needs more developers to develop apps for hearing impaired hidden!!! A million thanks!!!!

Rip Off

There are 6 sound cards and that's it! You can change the model's voice to either male or female, but that's pretty much the entire app. Don't spend $3.99 on 6 sounds- you'd be better off recording them yourself!

Huge rip off.

7 pictures and 7 sounds on the entire app. 1 page.
