Jenna, over at Speech Room News, is having a linky for Language Apps! Check here to check it out. My post will briefly outline my five favorite, go-to language apps!
1) Describe It! by Pocket SLP
This app would be perfect for kids of all ages.. and adults! Think Catch Phrase, but with picture support and easier targets. You can also play without a timer (how I play most of the time). This app is great for describing, categories, inferring and tons more! Super versatile.
2) Syntax City – Smarty Ears
Syntax City is a wonderful app for any of your kiddos who are working on grammar!
It targets a ton including do/does, is/are, plurals, and have/has.
All your kiddo has to do is listen to the spoken sentence, and choose the correct word to fill in the blank. The app also allows you to record each sentence. Per usual with Smarty Ears apps, great data is provided at the end!
3) Conversation TherAppy by Tactus Therapy
This app is a fantastic one to elicit all sorts of conversation! I use this with my adult clients as well and love it. You can pretty much use it to target anything…
You can easily use this app for critical thinking, categories, picture description, problem solving, WH questions and much much more!
4) Sentence Ninja by Smarty Ears
Another great app for syntax and sentence structure!! I love how this one builds from easy two words sentences to much more complex sentences. This makes is super useable for a wide range of clients.
After you drag and drop the words in the correct order to make a sentence, you can record yourself saying it as well! Additionally, the words can be color coded for additional cues. Great app!
5) Toca Monsters (I love all the Toca apps!)
I hope you’ve heard about Toca apps before! I just had to include one of them on my top 5 list because they are incredibly versatile, fun, engaging, motivating, and useful for so many types of clients! You could use these apps to target following directions, compare/contrast, problem solving, description, and so much more! These apps are super affordable so try one out and see how much your kiddos love it!
So there you have it! My top 5 language apps! Which do you love??
