Research shows that children learn to categorize objects in their environment in order to extend their knowledge and make sense of their experiences (Gelman 1999). Categorization skills also guide children in their rapid acquisition of conceptual and linguistic knowledge (Waxman & Kosowski 1990).
ToonWare Categories for Speech and Language Therapy app is designed and developed by a certified Bilingual Speech Language Pathologist to assist children ages 3 to 7 years increase their communication skills. It helps children in the six areas crucial to literacy development – categorization of everyday objects/animals, phonics, vocabulary, fluency, comprehension and expression. The Categories app has three levels, making it challenging and fun at the same time. Throughout the three different levels the child has to be able to understand the relationship between the pictures shown and find the category to which they belong.
- Level One (Easy), A picture of an item is shown and the child has to identify the category that it belongs to among 5 selections.
- Level Two (Medium), Three pictures are shown and the child has to be able to understand the relationship
between the objects and identify the category to which they belong.
- Level Three (Hard), The child has to find the pictures that belong to the given category.
Parents, speech language pathologist, special educators, and preschool teachers can use the Category app.
ToonWare Categories for Speech and Language Therapy app is available to download on iPhone ™ 4 , 4S and 5, iPad ™, iPad Mini ™ and iPod Touch ™. It is also available in Turkish under “Kategoriler”. Other versions in Spanish and Mandarin are in the works.

Excellent app for children and very fun
I really like this app. It is very educational and it really helps children learn how to categorize items. As someone who has bad communication skills, I am confident that this app will help children develop communication skills and increase their comprehension. The app is simple to use and I like that it has three different levels. I also like how it congratulates you for picking the right answer. I also like how after each round, it shows animals and you could sort the animals how you want. Overall, this app is useful for parents who are trying to help their kids develop social skills and phonics skills.
Great learning game
I think this game is great for kids learning how to categorize things with words. The pronunciation is very clear. It's also a lot of fun to play. I think the fact that this is fun will keep a child very focused and concentrated. It also has 3 levels, giving a child more incentive to keep playing and learning. All around great game.
This app is great for kids to learn picture/word association. It has fun music and graphics that even I enjoy! It has three levels, so plenty of room to learn more. It's beneficial to bilingual children as well because the will not only know the picture of a "cat," but they will learn the word associated with it.
