The First 100 Words includes functional vocabulary which occurs throughout a young child's daily routine, such as food, clothing, body parts, animals, colors, numbers and actions. This app will allow parents, teachers and therapists to introduce and practice these words, providing the repetition necessary to learn new vocabulary allowing the child to develop the skills necessary to express his wants and needs.

This app was developed by speech-language pathologists and deaf educators who primarily work with children who have hearing loss. Targeting vocabulary in this manner has proven to be successful in improving the number of words understood and used by children with hearing loss. The First 100 Words is appropriate for any children who have vocabulary and/or language delays or any young children who are just learning to talk.


* 100 beautifully illustrated images
* Customizable word list for targeting certain words, categories or speech sounds
* Three set size choices for varying the level of difficulty
* Data tracking and reporting, which can be emailed or printed for monitoring progress
* Two play modes for adult-directed play or child free-play (coming soon)

Sound problems

This app has the potential to be awesome. I have used these 100 words before but there are serious problems with the sound. Even when I connected a speaker to iPad I could barely hear the words. I would like to give with silent mode with me speaking the words in an understandable tone of voice but can't really do that because the words are random. I have to hold the iPad up to my ear so I can just barely hear the words so I can repeat for my student. Please fix.

**Please fix sound for iPad - even with controls turned all the way up, it is very quiet**
I like this app for its true simplicity. It is simply a flashcard app for vocabulary - functional beginner words. Nothing fancy. I really like that when you get the answer wrong, it presents the task again with the pictures rearranged :) very research-based in that aspect.
