Early Words with Splingo is the latest app from the authors of the highly popular Splingo speech therapy apps series.
Early Words with Splingo was inspired by one of the young people that we work with in our clinical practice. Samuel was playing our original app – Splingo’s Language Universe and, although Samuel loved the reward game, his cognitive ability and language comprehension levels meant he found the vocabulary and language structures too complex.
It stuck us that we needed an app that contained very common everyday vocabulary and directions that were developmentally appropriate for younger children and those with more significant developmental needs. We also knew the app had to have a reward game with immediate feedback to keep children motivated.
We spoke to other SLTs/SLPs who agreed that there was a gap for such an app and so Early words with Splingo was born!
Like all our other apps, Early Words with Splingo is fully customizable, enabling you to select specific vocabulary to target in therapy and teaching. The app also has the option to select between US voice and UK voice and also has a Voice Record function that encourages children to practise using their own expressive language.
EARLY WORDS WITH SPLINGO FEATURES:
- Over 100 high-frequency words to select from
- Designed for young children and those with significant developmental needs
- Beautiful, high-quality images
- Voice Record and Playback feature for monitoring children’s responses
- Motivating reward game to maintain children’s interest
- Pause option
- US and UK voice
“I love it! It’s so simple! It’s what has been missing from the apps market – quick and easy rewards for those kids who need really simple vocabulary teaching. It’s great for those children whose attention I find difficult to capture and hold. Brilliant!
At the Speech and Language Store we take your privacy seriously. As parents ourselves, the safety of children online (and everywhere else!) is extremely important to us.
We do not collect personally identifiable information within our apps (for example first and last name, address etc.). Identifiers from your device are only collected for internal usage to help improve app design and performance. For example, information is collected on app crashes, number of installs (sales) and app usage time. This is collected through a third-party provider; Flurry which is part of Yahoo (https://developer.yahoo.com/analytics/). The restricted version of Flurry Analytics ("Flurry") is used. We do not track any more information than is necessary to improve the quality of our apps and services. The information collected by the third party provider is used solely by us and not shared with anyone else.
None of our apps contain In App Purchases
Our apps do not use or collect a user’s geographic location.
Our apps do not contain Social Network Integration
Our apps do not contain any advertising banners.
Our apps may contain links to our website and Facebook/Twitter pages.
These links are found on a contained, adult-targeted settings screen separate from game play screens, and are for parents/professionals to find out more about our apps. In our newer apps these links are behind a parental gate, which requires the user to follow a written instruction to gain access. We are currently in the process of updating our existing apps to include this feature.
We hope you've been enjoying using Early Words and found it useful!
This update improves the game even further by fixing a few words that have been misbehaving within the game for a small number of users.
If you have any questions about this update, have feedback for us or spotted any issues, we'd love to hear from you so please get in touch.
