Multisyllabic is an innovative app that is filled with two-, three-, four- and five-syllable words sorted into categories ~ people, food, transportation, U.S. States, and geography presented in fun puzzle pieces that connect as touch cues for pacing. Multisyllabic words in speech therapy can be very challenging for children with articulation disorders, apraxia, and autism spectrum disorder. It is important to break this into smaller steps, beginning with one syllable, then two, then three, and so on.
What makes this app special is the combination of tactile, visual, and auditory components, proven as the best way to target speech production. Motor sequence learning is the objective, pairing motor movements with hierarchies of stimuli. Once correct production of a word has been achieved, level two includes carrier phrases and level three has sentences for mastery.
