Ratings and Reviews
Could be a lot better
I love the Hamaguchi apps, as do most of my students (I'm a speech therapist). Having their apps on days when a child won't interact with me is a lifesaver (all kids love the iPad!). That said, I'm surprised this app came from a speech therapist. Choosing an object from a field of 5 is impossible for most of my students. Most of them are working on choosing an object from a field of 2 or 3. I desperately wish you could change the number of objects in the field!!!!!!! It would make this app so much more useful. Without this, it makes the app promising but hard to use as it is.
That said, I've managed to use it with a could of kids and they enjoy it. I like how the app gives you choices between real pictures or cartoons. I work primarily with Spanish speaking children so I also love that the app comes in so many languages. If you could run an update on the Following Directions apps so they'd come in Spanish, I'd be your first customer!
Developer Response ,
Thanks so much for your input. As you hopefully know by now, we agreed and made those exact changes to the app! So you can select 2, 3, 4 or 5 objects in a field of choices. This change was made last year but we weren't able to respond to reviews until recently so hopefully you have been using the new version with these changes. Hamaguchi Apps Team
Great for special needs, young and old
This app is a great tool for helping a child with both receptive and expressive language. Wonderful reinforcements for learning for a child or person with apraxia. Great for my son with down syndrome and verbal apraxia. Even though I do not have a baby or toddler, I can see this being a great app for teaching new words. As for an older child, like a couple of mine. They can learn how to say words in a different language. As I said before great reinforcement.
Great for speech and to teach foreign languages
I got this app originally to help with my 2 year old's speech therapy but soon realized that it would be great for my 5 and 7 year olds as well who are learning spanish! I can set up three different users and have each of them working at thier own level. Thank you!
