The game is a great interactive tool for students to use with a teacher, therapist, parent, or caregiver.

Its format is an exciting new way to help readers of all ages develop and improve their reading comprehension abilities.

This app was created, developed and written by a certified speech language pathologist with many years of hands on experience with a variety of clients with different needs. Young and older school age children as well as adults both typically developing and special needs can benefit greatly from this app.

Brainy Skills Synonyms and Antonyms is a simple game to practice words that are either synonyms or antonyms. First, read a simple sentence and have the student choose the correct word by tapping on the correct answer from the two choices. Next, work your way up the scoreboard. Last, master all of the synonyms or antonyms throughout 20 levels of gameplay. Each level enhances a student's skills important for decoding language with words that have the same or opposite meaning. Motivate the player to beat their score each time they play and get to the highest score.

Kids Love it.....BUT


As an SLP, it would be helpful if I could assign player names before we begin play. I would also like multiple player mode for when I have two or more students in a session.

Some of the items don’t really make sense - for example ‘Boat - Airplane’ - these words are not antonyms. There are others like this, but I didn’t write them down. I will next time.

Thanks for “listening”.

Kids love this app!


I love this app. I always feel like practicing antonyms & synonyms can get boring, but the students love this app! They are really excited to play the bonus rounds and super proud when they get it right. Multiple choice format makes it a good start for learning antonyms/synonyms and the easy/hard levels offer more words than I usually have in my word banks. The only suggestion I have is: I would love to be able to manually go to the next trial. Right now, the trials switch automatically after you give an answer. I would love to be able to stay on the screen in order to discuss the answer with my students while the words are still there. Overall, definitely worth the price!

Love this app!


As a homeschooling mom with 10 kids, this is a fun way for my kids to practice synonyms and antonyms. The kids love having competitions to see who can get the highest score. Makes learning fun! One of the best educational apps around!
