Review:

When we discuss teaching pragmatics and all that is involved with non-verbal communication, there isn’t a better app then Feel Electric!  It is a jam-packed app full of educational content that can be geared towards an array of individuals in differing age groups.  The app is carefully laid out and detailed step-by-step by the characters on the screen.  Feel Electric provides versatile learning in the areas of body language, understanding complex emotions, facial expressions, and most importantly how to express oneself both appropriately and accurately.  As therapists, using this app teaches critical skills and grows the end user’s vocabulary (outside of the typical feelings happy, mad, and sad).  It provides the individual with engaging tasks that keep them both focused and on topic no matter where they navigate to within the app.

Pros:                                                                      Cons:

  1. Free
  2. Teaches pragmatics
  3. Wide variety of content
  4. Versatile to many age group (great for teens)

Feel Electric is a remarkable app that can be utilized in groups as well as individual settings.  It is definitely worth downloading and exploring what it can do.

  • Direction following (one step/multi-step)
  • Prepositions
  • Pronouns

Description:

The Sound Touch App consist of drawings and real life pictures. The pictures consist of different categories ranging from farm animals to object functions.

Review:

The Sound Touch App is an outstanding App for children who are working on Expressive and Receptive Language skills. Children will love the bright cartoon drawings that transition into real life pictures, a great concept to teach generalization of objects. Children can follow one step directions (e.g. “show me the cow”) up to  multi-step directions (e.g. “first point to the cow then the sheep”). Test your child’s ability to answer various “wh” questions (e.g. “Who flies the airplane?). The App can also be used to encourage acquisition of new verbs and adjectives as the real life pictures change up to five times when the cartoon picture is touched. Don’t spend money on  flash cards when the Sound Touch app provides an interactive approach for all children.

Pros:                                                                    Cons:

  1. Pictures are rotating                                       1. Limited Categories
  2. Displays object functions
  3. Interactive sounds when pushed
  4. Encourages acquisition of verbs/adjectives

Speech with Milo: Sequencing

Price: $2.99

Seller: Poorani Doonan

Tablet: iPad

Educational Aspect(s):

  • Sequencing
  • Storytelling and/or retelling
  • Time concept (first, next, last)
  • Increasing utterance length
  • Developing complex sentences
  • Improving grammatical skills

Description:

35 sequencing exercises using animation to keep children engaged. Created by a licensed Speech- Language Pathologist to help children develop sequencing and storytelling skills.

Review:

The Speech with Milo: Sequencing app available on the App Store is a fun and innovative way for children to learn.  The app is simple to navigate, user friendly, easy to manipulate, and is laid out in a logical manner.  From a therapist’s perspective, it allows us to target many speech and language goals all while playing on the iPad.  A feature Speech with Milo: Sequencing would benefit from would be introducing a “Levels” feature.  This app is great for beginners starting out with simple three-step sequencing. However, for kids who need more of a challenge this app doesn’t cater to them.  In order for this app to be adaptable and resourceful in multiple circumstances it would benefit from having a way to increase and decrease difficulty, therefore providing a flexible yet multi-purpose app.

Pros:                                                           Cons:

  1. User friendly                                          1. Lacks difficulty/growth of app
  2. 35 fun exercises                                    2. Unintentional visual cues (a, b, c) on screen
  3. Easily manipulated
  4. Fair price
  5. Therapy ideas provided on website

The price point of this app makes it both attractive and practical for all the content you get.  The seller also provides therapy ideas on their webpage (click here).
