★★★★★ "This app developer really understands what SLP's find valuable in an app that is used in a therapy setting."
★★★★★ "I use the Milo apps on a daily basis in therapy and the children remain engaged and truly enjoy playing and learning with Milo. This app is a must buy."
Build basic sequencing skills by ordering three cards showing Milo and Melvin performing a task. For example, cards showing Milo “Washing Hands” and “Going to the Movies” are presented in random order. The child is tasked with putting the cards in order by dragging the images into the appropriate box (numbered 1-3). Once the child has put the cards in order, they are provided with the option to play the animation demonstrating the sequence of events. The app is provided with configurable options to view hints, hear the sentence aloud, ‘success’ sounds, etc. Forget those $15 Sequencing cards at the educational stores- this is much more fun for your child.

Speech with Milo first became popular amongst Speech-Language Pathologists and parents with apps to help children build language skills with Verbs and Prepositions. The Verbs app represented the education category for the Mobile Premier Awards and was embraced by the parent community. Now Milo returns to help build critical sequencing skills.
The app comes with a set of instructions written by a licensed SLP to help you work with your child.
These are the language skills you will be targeting with this app:
•Storytelling and/or retelling
•Time concepts “first,” “next,” and “last”
•Increasing utterance length
•Developing complex sentences
•Improving grammatical skills

Almost, but not quite there
The pics can be a bit confusing for a younger child to figure out. In addition, Some of the sequences should be more distinguished from each other. For example, what is the proper sequence of eating a burger; putting ketchup on a burger, biting a burger, or eating the burger. The last two are essentially the same thing. The last two pictures are practically identical.
It is presented nicely and I see where they are going, but the pictures and sequences should be a little easier to follow.
Son enjoys app
Great app but it would be better if the sequencing can be spoken. My son did much better when I read him each sequence. He still figured it out quickly but if its a speech therapy app, he should learn from hearing what each sequence is and not just by the pictures.
I love the app but some pics are confusing and difficult to tease apart - especially for younger kids. Would love to have the option of turning numbers off so kiddos can't see the numerical order.
