From theimums.com: "I think the developer has done a great job with this app – it is engaging, simple to use, is very adjustable allowing it to be used by students with a range of abilities, and has the ability to track settings and data from multiple students. All this for $9.99 – a real bargain!! Highly recommended!"

“She is eating an apple under the tree.” What does that sentence really mean? What would it look like? Picture the Sentence is an exciting app designed to practice language and auditory processing tasks at the basic sentence level. This app offers three different levels of difficulty so the child can learn how to attend to important elements of a sentence and “picture it,” attaching meaning to the words and eventually forming mental pictures without visual support. It is also an excellent choice for anyone who is trying to learn and understand the English language. **Turn the voice commands off and the text feature on, and this game can also be a great way to practice basic reading comprehension skills too!

To watch a demonstration of this app and its features, please check our video on You Tube: http://youtu.be/gaiE7OQV-AQ on the HamaguchiApps channel.

We have incorporated a cute “Pick-a-Door” game, which can be selected at varying intervals so the user can take a break and have a little fun. The user opens each door until an animal comes out and says, "You found me!"

Options in the Settings Include:
• Choice of color drawing icons or stick figures
• Levels include: Easy (slow, with visual support staying on the screen) Intermediate (faster rate with pauses, with visual support flashing briefly on the screen) and Advanced (no pausing or visual support)
• Text on/Text off
• Choice of subjects: Pronouns (He/she/they) or nouns (boy/girl/children)
• Sandtimer (This delays the presentation of the picture choices so there is a greater challenge to the child’s working memory.) It is enabled in the "default" mode but can be easily turned off
• Sentence Types: Subject + verb, subject + verb + object, subject + verb + prepositional phrase, subject + verb + object + prepositional phrase
*Progress/Data tracker that allows you to collect and save data, email it or print it

Great for auditory processing and memory retention!

Picture the Sentence HD is another great speech language app from Hamaguchi! Because it is fully customizable and has scaffolds learning to increase competence, it will provide many different opportunities to work on auditory processing and memory retention skills. I highly recommend reviewing the Q&A to get the most out of the app. users will enjoy the door game as a break/reward or to work on turn taking. with an assortment of sentence types and data tracking, this program is very versatile. I highly recommend this app for parents, therapists or educators wanting to work on these skills.

Great app

This app is great! I have found it really useful with one of my patients because it helped me realize how much help he requires to remember information. We are currently at the hardest level and it has been a big help with this patient. I like that the app does not advance to the next sentence until you want it to and I like that the developer included a good info page with instructions on how to use the app. Also, I love having all of the different settings. Great job again Hamaguchi!


Very cool

I love this app. After reading the Q&A in the info section I really understood how to use the app and I think everyone should read it before they start. The different settings are great and the door game can be used as a good turn taking break in between the activity. Great for discussing with your kids what it means to picture the sentence in your head.
