Fun Word Scramble App

Speech-Language Pathologist

I use Picture Communication Symbols all the time as a Speech-Language Pathologist. This Word Scramble App features PCS in a fun way for therapy sessions and I've also used it for spelling with my own kids. One suggestion would be to add even more positive feedback options. I give this App 4 stars!

Are you kidding me?


I just downloaded the PCS Word Scramble app for iPad, bought all the word sets, and was playing with the app (as I do with all apps before I let my son use them). One of the first 3-letter words was "abs". "Abs"...seriously?! First of all, that is slang for abdominal(s). Second of all, what child who can't spell 3-letter words yet needs to know "abs"? Please. I expect more from Mayer-Johnson educational apps!
