Ratings and Reviews
Great app for kids
It's worth spending money on this. Quite lot of information to spend time and teach my child. I know many times we spend one class of therapy by spending same $ but hesitant to spend on app. This is really worth and useful app. My child liked and mainly useful for expressing and initiating the talk. It took while to find this in App Store.
Great way to work on sentence building in speech therapy!
I use this app in my speech therapy practice. It is most appropriate for kids- but adults with aphasia also find it helpful. The colorful pictures are very engaging. Many individuals need work on written sentence formulation, but can't write or legibility is a big problem. This app is a wonderful way to get around those issues and focus on grammar and the connector words. I often expand on the app and encourage the kids or adults I am helping to say the final selection aloud and perhaps then generate another sentence or two to describe the picture or answer a question. It all depends on the therapy goals. If we are working on typing or handwriting sometimes I have them try to write the sentence again from memory.
What a great value for only $3.99. The kids I have used this app with love it and often then willingly practice learning the new skills on their own:)
I also appreciate the fact that the developer of this app is very responsive to my suggestions for ways that this app can be improved.
Nice app for syntax and grammar
I am a school-based SLP, and I work with students who have complex communication needs, and this app is a favorite. I do have some wish list items, however: (1) an option for visual reinforcement for every correct answer, for my students with hearing impairment; (2) an option to control scrolling or lock in words for my students with motor planning problems; (3) an option to have a word spoken aloud when touched for my students with limited literacy; (4) an option to show students which words are correct or incorrect when they select, for my students who have impulse control issues or global processing issues/autism, to better help them 'keep trying'.
I really like the variety of sentences and sentence structures used in the app. I also appreciate the ability to adjust levels and settings for individual students. Thanks for another great app!
