Whether learning English as a first or second language it is designed for use with typically developing toddlers, dual language learners, and children with specific language impairments such as receptive or expressive language delays or autism spectrum disorder.

As a parent, you can use this app to lead your child through the natural hierarchy of communicative intent, beginning with high impact words, expanding meaning by changing intonation of speech, adding vocabulary including objects, actors and actions, and then developing early syntax, simple combinations of words.
As your child masters one and two word combinations, turn the sounds off and switch to Shuffle mode so that they can practice language production independently, relying on language processing and formulation skills.

Ratings and Reviews
This app is very nice. I use it with my two boys ages 2 and 4 and they really like it. What I like is that they don't spend too much time and they learn every time. Simple but works. Great choice of words too, beats animals or veggies. The talking memory game is a nice addition. Keep it up!
Helped my son!
My son is slightly speech delayed, and his speech therapist introduced him to this app. He loves it and it teaches him a large number of new words, and keeps him occupied for a long time too. Well worth $2.
Doesn't work on iPhone 4 like it should
I got this app just for my 23mo boy. Of course he always wants to push the button so I wanted an app I can shut him up with for a bit and not worry about him calling everyone in the book and 911. So the locking doesn't work or their prevention from clicking home by adding button presses to the result of exiting
