SPEECH TUTOR

Animated front and side views of all major speech sounds

GET IT NOW
Available for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch.

Speech Tutor brings the latest in technology and animation to the world of sound production. Whether you’re a speech-language pathologist, a college student studying communication sciences & disorders, a parent of a child with speech delays, or someone trying to improve their American English accent, you’re going to find this an invaluable application.

 

Whether you’re a speech and language pathologist (SLP), an SLP college student, a parent of children with speech delays, or someone trying to improve their American English accent, you’re going to find this an invaluable application. A first of its kind in the field, Speech Tutor brings the latest in technology and animation to the world of speech. The animations inside Speech Tutor take the areas of the face that impede the view of tongue placement and positioning and make them transparent. Now one can literally see inside the mouth as the sounds are being made! Speech Tutor offers a “Side View” and a “Front View” of each sound production, both of which can be viewed at 3 different speeds (slow, medium, fast). The movies can also be paused any given point.

With 132 animations in all, Speech Tutor is sure to offer a helpful view and speed for anyone in need. Speech Tutor does not stop there though. Non SLPs can begin the application by reading an easy to understand “Basics” tutorial which provides the reader with a solid foundation of the basic knowledge needed to know before attempting to improve any/all English consonants. Also provided is detailed text specific to each sound that further describes how each sound is technically made, tips provided by licensed speech and language pathologists, and milestones for when each sound should be acquired and mastered. Along with viewing the animations, one can also view a “Palate” diagram to further demonstrate where on the palate the tongue should be placed. Last but not least, users of the application can choose to record themselves as they practice their target sounds and then choose to play it before and after a correctly modeled production. Animations for the following sounds are provided: P, B, T, D, K, G, N, M, ING, F, V, S, Z, SH, CH, J, L, R (retroflex and bunched), TH (voiced and voiceless).

Describe It

Study the parameters of describing all while playing games and having a blast

GET IT NOW
Available for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch.

DESCRIBE IT is a new describing app designed to help kids learn many of the important parameters of describing. The app comes with an easy to use "Study" section where children can choose categories, see an image, and then touch audio clues in the following areas: sight, taste, touch, smell, feel, function, and category.


DESCRIBE IT is a game application designed by certified speech and language pathologists to make learning to describe fun and easy. Use this tested way of improving describing skills utilized by speech and language therapists around the world and watch as the describing ability of children improves effortlessly.

Often children have difficulty describing because they do not have a proper “framework” to reference when trying to find words. DESCRIBE IT provides children with the framework by giving them audio clues in seven of the most important parameters for describing: taste, touch, function, sight, hearing, smell, and category. DESCRIBE IT provides a “Study” section and two games to help generalize learning: “Pass It” and “Guess It”.

PASS IT is a game in the tradition of the popular game “Catch Phrase” where users must divide into two groups and try and describe the item pictured to their teammates. But you’ve got to describe quickly because you don’t want to be left with the device in your hand when time runs out or the other team gets the point!

GUESS IT allows for users to touch clues and guess what is behind the secret card!

Pocket Artic

Over 3000 stimulus cards for improving and tracking progress on articulation therapy

GET IT NOW
Available for the iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, and Android platforms

Hands down the most powerful (and educational) articulation application on the market! If you are a speech-language pathologist, this is going to be the app that you simply cannot live without. It is jam packed with well over 3,000 flashcards that target 29 phoneme selections.


Pocket Artic is a technological breakthrough for speech therapy–a real game changer for working with articulation delays. It effectively renders card decks and traditional flash cards obsolete.

Developed by practicing speech and language pathologists (SLPs), Pocket Artic creates an engaging atmosphere by offering a unique multi-sensory approach to articulation drill. Presented with over 2,100 high-quality, carefully researched flashcards targeting both the word and sentence levels clients and children are met with immediate auditory feedback, and are tacitly involved as they push buttons and/or swipe their way through the images. Pocket SLP offers 29 phoneme selections, seven of which are devoted to /r/ and it’s vocalic variations.

After selecting one or more phonemes, clients are cued to label and produce target images pictured on the screen. Real time scoring occurs as the Correct, Incorrect, or Approximate buttons are selected. Then to get highly specific scoring data a “Summary” screen is offered which reveals percentages specific to phoneme and word position. Therapists and parents will also enjoy a feature that allows them to add names in the iPhone or Touch Contacts. Names and previous results are stored and can be viewed by date and time from within the application. Finally, the results of a session may be emailed from within the summary screen.

At any time during viewing the images a button can be pushed to reveal two detailed diagrams (palate and side views) indicating the specific tongue positioning for the phoneme being targeted. Additionally, while viewing the diagrams an audio recording of the phoneme can be played as the client views how to appropriately produce the sound.

Pocket SLP offers the following options:
1) “Auditory Feedback” can be turned on and off or “silly” sounds can be selected.
2) “Auto-advance” can be turned off as to allow more time for ever important language modeling.
3) A “Practice Mode” is offered with no scoring buttons.
4) Word or Sentence “Level” – Pocket SLP will provide a single word or a sentence containing the target phoneme.
5) Randomize cards after the completion of a deck.
6) Customize email format for percentage or decimal representation

One Step Two Step

Kids can create their own scenes as they enjoy following directions

GET IT NOW
Available for the iPad

This app helps children follow step directions in a fun and interactive way. We constantly hear from parents and therapists about the difficulty children have following directions. The ability to follow directions depends upon the child’s auditory sequential memory ability, which is the ability to hold information in memory in the order it was given.


One Step Two Step is an app to help children follow step directions in a fun and interactive way.

The creator is a speech-language pathologist that constantly hears from parents and therapists about the difficulty children have following directions. The ability to follow directions depends upon the child’s auditory sequential memory ability, which is the ability to hold information in memory in the order it was given. This ability develops over time. Children at 1 year of age begin to carry out simple one step directions such as “ give me the cup.” Between two and three years of age the child follows 2 step directions and by the time they enter Kindergarten they should be able to follow at least a 3 step direction. Life and school are full of directives. The child who has difficulty in this area is easily left behind or left to follow the other children. Frustration and anxiety build and self esteem often suffers.

One Step Two Step is an app based on the listening-language intervention done on a daily basis by one of the leading speech-language pathologists in the country. AND it’s so much fun!

Children can follow directions by listening to directions and then coloring and dragging shapes onto pictures. With 25 different scenes and almost 500 different directions, your child will surely improve as they have a blast making the pictures within come to life! There is also a simple “game” inside to help generalize following and giving directions.

The “Pro” version of the application allows for adding names of kids, allowing multiple kids to participate at one time, and recording and exporting performance data.

Language Forest

Create your own decks and solidify a strong language foundation for all ages

GET IT NOW
Available for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch

Simply enjoy over 50 included decks of commonly targeted language areas or dive in and make your own decks. Look up words, find and add associations, add pictures, draw pictures, and add audio. Let your students EXPERIENCE language learning, not just memorize. This is simply the most advanced flashcard application available.


We believe that learning language should be an experience, not just a tedious memorization process. As practicing speech and language pathologists, they are well aware that each person is unique and learns via an array of modalities. This is why they have designed a unique flashcard application that goes far beyond the reaches of traditional flashcards.

Called Language Forest because we view each word in a language as being analogous to a tree. Though each word has a “trunk” or meaning of its own, it also has many roots and branches. Language Forest is built around the concept that users can find the primary meaning of the words as well as how it can branch off into related words and real life experiences. Relating words to real life experiences not only affords people with a deeper understanding of a word but also greatly improves retention. This is why Language Forest not only provides users with the ability to create their own decks and flashcards but it also provides them with the ability to fill in their own “branches.”

As users look up (internet connection required) and/or add words, they are also provided with boxes where they can write in and/or copy/paste definitions, antonyms, synonyms, and “other” information. Beyond that, they can also draw pictures, add/take photos, and also add audio. Once all this is added, simply touch “save” and your experience is saved for unique viewing in a quiz screen.

Once decks are created the user can then view all this information in a study or quiz screen. Associated buttons according to information entered are provided below the flashcard and can be accessed as pop up information with a simple touch. Users can also decide which of the information they added will be on the primary flashcard. Draw all your cards, create your own photo decks, study synonyms for words in a deck and then change to study their antonyms if you wish, or simply utilize the “other” option to include whatever text you’d like. The possibilities are vast.

When quizzing, users can score using correct, incorrect, or approximate buttons and then view the exact words and according percentages when finished. In addition, users can view line graphs for how they are progressing for each specific deck.

But this is just one of the main features included within the app. As practicing speech and language therapists, we also know one might not have time to create decks for commonly targeted areas, particularly in the realm of language therapy. This is why we’ve included an unprecedented amount of decks within the application. Language Forest comes with over 50 jammed packed decks (over 1300 cards in all). Included decks are as follows:

Adjectives – appearance, condition, feelings (bad), feelings (good), quantity, shape, size, sound, taste, time, touch, words to compliment your mom ;)
Associations – guess my job, words that go together
Categories – animal habitats, animal types, food groups, transportation, “name the category”
Definitions – words that make you sound like a braniac, words that make you sound like a doctor, words that make you sound like an artist, words that sound cool.

Describing – Texture
Emotions
Functions
Guess The Word
If…Then Statements
Irregular Past Tense Verbs (all in the English language)
Naming – colors, shapes, transportation
Opposites – adjectives, nouns, verbs (nearly 300 opposites in all)
Root Words
Synonyms
Wh Questions – who, what, when, where, why, and how

Other features include:
See multiple students at a time
Study multiple decks at a time
Double tap cards for full screen view
Add comments about each session
Email/Print results
Email/Print information from the card decks
Send and receive decks to and from other Language Tree users

The R App

Target those pesky Rs
Broken up into all vocalic variations

GET IT NOW
Available for the iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, and Android

We know how important parent involvement is to making swift progress. So that is why we created an app specifically designed FOR PARENTS to use with their child who is working on that tricky R sound. It is important that carryover occurs outside of the speech setting, so practicing the R sound at home has never been this fun.


From the makers of “Pocket SLP – Articulation,” a wildly popular application among speech therapists, comes a state of the art speech therapy tool specifically designed for parents to help their children with the pronunciation of those notorious Rs.

R is a complex sound that has a reputation for being one of the most difficult to address without consistent direction and practice. With the R sound in particular, “practice makes perfect!” With the R App for Parents, now families can practice in the comfort of their home or on the go.

This application provides easy to understand tips provided by practicing speech pathologists and highly detailed diagrams for the tricky tongue positioning that R requires.

The R App for Parents provides stimulus cards that allow R practice at the beginning, middle, and end of words. Because R is often difficult to achieve, this application also offers practice with R in a number of different combinations (er, ar, ir, or air, ire, or rl). Once your child is making progress with the R words, then parents can choose to include the words within sentences with our sentence flashcards. With over 600 images, there is plenty of practicing to be done!

Best of all though is “The R App for Parents” allows parents to enter the names of their children and track their progress! Parents can “score” their child’s responses by selecting “correct, incorrect, or close” buttons. This app will save each practice session and even allows for the results to be emailed to other family members or speech therapists.

Opposite Day

GET IT NOW
Available for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch

Ahh, it’s the infamous Opposite Day! Study opposites by viewing cards that are professionally and comically illustrated. Visit the browse section to simply cruise through and learn or test your students by quizzing them with expressive and receptive modes.

Practice opposites in English and/or Spanish!

A charmingly illustrated app designed primarily to teach opposites – but that is not all. Because the app was designed by certified speech-language therapists the opposites are grouped by nouns, verbs, prepositions, and adjectives to further promote understanding of numerous areas of language. Choose which groups of opposites you’d like to practice and have fun!

Simply choose our “browse” option to cruise through and learn opposites at random or choose to quiz your kiddos on their knowledge. Choose one or all of our groups of opposites and either have your children tell you the opposite with our expressive activity or choose the correct opposite with our receptive activity. As with all Pocket SLP apps detailed records of their progress are kept behind the scenes and can be exported to show practice.

With over 150 comically illustrated cards in both Spanish and English, we are positive your children will want to learn each and every one.

Opposite Day also proves as a great way for children to learn basic words if they are starting out learning English or Spanish.

Magic Voice

Encourage vocalizing by moving animations simply by using your magic voice!

GET IT NOW
Available for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch

Imagine if it was possible to have your child's voice trigger an animation of a bunny popping out of a magic hat?! This application can do that . . . and SO MUCH MORE! Magic Voice emphasizes the fact that verbal communication is a purposeful behavior that can be used with intent to bring about changes in the immediate environment.


There is nothing more precious than when children start to use expressive language to effectively communicate. Magic Voice was created by certified speech and language pathologists to promote new and improved speech and language. Magic Voice allows children to initiate and move animated scenes using the power of their voice. Children can even record video of the scene as they talk and play it back to see and hear the scenes they have created.

This app proves not only fun and laugh filled for children of all ages and abilities but has also proven to be motivating for children who are non-verbal and delayed in articulation and language.

HELP YOUR CHILD TO BUILD INTENTIONAL COMMUNICATION

Magic Voice emphasizes the fact that verbal communication is a purposeful behavior that can be used with intent to bring about changes in the immediate environment.

Attention parents, the Speech Pairs app is here and it comes tailored specifically for parents and home practice! Complete with tips on how to improve sounds, milestones for when speech sounds should be mastered AND helpful diagrams of tongue positioning. Now parents can learn the basics of “speech therapy 101″ and practice with your children when you want!


A variation of the popular “Minimal Pairs” application used by 1000s of speech therapists on a daily basis, “Speech Pairs” comes tailored specifically for parents and home practice! Complete with tips on how to improve sounds, milestones for when speech sounds should be mastered, AND helpful diagrams of tongue positioning. Learn the basics of “speech therapy 101” and have the luxury of practicing on your own time!

Speech Pairs offers a unique way of improving your child’s speech by using “minimal pairs” (a pair of words that differ by only one sound). For example, this application will put words such as “Which” and “Rich” (for children who have problems with R) side-by-side to highlight the slight differences between what children are saying and what they should be saying.

Speech Pairs allows parents to enter the names of their children (up to two names). Then the program “deals cards” with your child’s name on them! Your child can then touch the screen to reveal the words underneath. Once the word pairs are revealed your child will hear the words, have the ability to have the words repeated as many times as they would like, record/hear themselves saying the words, and view side-by-side diagrams showing the difference of where their tongue is positioned vs. where it should be positioned.

Two activities are offered within: a “Say” mode and a “Listen” mode.

In the “Say” mode parents can sit with the children and determine if they got the sound correct, incorrect, or if they were close. This is tracked by touching the appropriate buttons.

In the “Listen” activity parents can sit with their child viewing the words and ask their child which of the two cards contains the correct way of pronouncing each word. Don’t forget that the “Listen” activity is equally important! Not only does it allow your child to hear the correct way to produce their error sound but it also promotes auditory discrimination skills which is a very important developmental skill for speaking AND reading. When your child can identify which word in the pair uses the correct sound he is well on his way to success!

Speech Pairs also keeps detailed data on their progress, showing percentages and the exact words that were correct, incorrect, or close. The application also provides line graphs showing the percentage correct over the last 5 practice sessions. This is a great way of showing your child his progress in a picture format. Parents have the option to enter and view comments about any practice session they wish, and keep a running log of audio recordings so their children can hear how much they are improving.

If your child has any of the following speech errors, this is the application for you:

· Difficulty with consonant blends – e.g. “back” instead of “black”
· Difficulty with J or CH – e.g. “dog” instead of “jog” or “tease” instead of “cheese.”
· Leaves off final consonants – e.g. “go” instead of “goat”
· Changes the sound of consonants at the end of words –e.g. “back” instead of “bag” or “hit” instead of “hid”.
· Difficulty with K and/or G – e.g. “tat” instead of “cat” or “doe” instead of “go”.
· Difficulty with SH, CH, and J – For children who frequently say S, T, or D instead of SH, CH, and/or J.
· Difficulty with R – e.g. “which” instead of “rich.”
· Difficulty with L – e.g. “white” instead of “light.”
· Leave sounds off of the beginning of words –e.g. “add” instead of “Dad.”
· Changes consonant sounds before the vowel in a word – e.g. “puck” instead of “buck”.
· Difficulty with any/all of the following: CH, J, F, V, S, Z, S
· For children who delete or replace any of the previously mentioned sounds.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

We are passionate about Speech and Language Therapy and we are totally focused on practicing the best way we know. Publishing apps for therapists, parents, and children for that purpose has been an outstanding way of expressing our passion and making it easier, more effective, and efficent.


We are also keenly aware that therapists and many families don't have huge budgets for purchasing apps. This is why we made a decision early on to not only build the best apps, but to make them as affordable as possible. We care deeply about our customers and encourage them to let us know what's working for them and what isn't.
