Speech Therapy Center redefines articulation apps in many ways. This fresh new interface will bring a new ease to accessing materials needed to improve speech. Not only does it come with 34 different card decks and nearly 1000 cards, it’s also packed with tools that will be invaluable to improving speech. Users of Speech Therapy Center can record audio and/or video, see placement movies for consonants and vowels, view 3D models of tongue shape, read about placement and get tips, and engage in reward activities…and all of this can be done on one easy to use screen.
The following card decks are available with initial, medial, and final placement:
p, b, t, d, k, g, m, n, ing, f, v, ch, j, s, s blends, z, sh, l, l blends, th (voiced and voiceless), r, r blend, er, ear, ar, air, or, ire, rl, a, i, u, æ
Side view video is provided for the following sounds
p, b, t, d, k, g, m, n, ing, f, v, ch, j, s, z, sh, l, l blends, th (voiced and voiceless), r (retroflexed and bunched), a, i, u, æ
3D models of tongue shape exist for
t/d, k/g, sh/zh/, s/z, r retroflexed, r bunched
What's New in Version 1.01
This is a really cool app. I like the setup and the ease of use. I watched the short tutorial, but I like that it is easy enough to figure out without watching it. I like having pictures as well as video and/or visuals for the tongue position on the screen. I also like that you can increase the size of the pictures. There is no data collection, but that doesn't bother me. There is also a nice activity for the young kids where you put the coins in the chest or give fruit to a monkey. The one thing I think would be cool is if when you trashed a sound, it would unselect that sound so you could quickly tap a new sound. This way you don't have to go back to that original sound and deselect it. This isn't a huge deal, but I thought it would be cool. Great job overall!
This is a really nice app, but it needs better reinforcement games. The monkey was called boring by one of my students.
