Sensory Speak Up is a visually stimulating simple game style app that responds to sounds.
Speak Up can be used to encourage children to vocalize and make sounds, either through the internal microphone or via and external microphone.
Designed to assist with speech therapy, the louder the voice sound, the bigger the shape or pattern becomes.
Different activities either give a gross display of the volume or a short trail of volumes.
The colors of the display can be set as well as the sound threshold for a visual response.

The settings button is key
There is a settings button in the upper left hand corner where you can choose colors and set the microphone sensitivity to be low. This is good both as a simple cause and effect app for kids who are just learning to vocalize, and it's also good for teaching students to use a louder voice- or the opposite - a quieter voice. I would like to be able to fine tune he microphone sensitivity even more- on the some of the activities it would be more fun if the patterns registered more instead of hovering at the bottom of the page. A good speech therapy tool to have. My students like their other sensory speak up app too because of the caterpillar they can make grow.
I figured out how to get colors, but the mic sensitivity setting is not clear. Text based directions would not go amiss. I hope to figure it out as I think this might help both my student who persists in whispering and those groups that get too loud.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
