This is a great review of our Language Builder Expressive Language app by Breanna Allor. Breanna has a blog called Let’s Talk Speech Language Pathology. On her blog, she posts reviews of apps and games, and she also has all sorts of tips for practicing SLP’s. She is a prolithic writer, so there is a lot to learn from her site.
Language Builder is designed to help students practice their expressive language and make inferences. They are presented a photograph, and then asked to record a sentence about that photograph. There are 10 themes with related photographs in each theme, so the student can choose a theme to their liking. In order to help students come up with ideas, there are a few different levels of hints. They range from giving the student an almost complete sentence with just a couple missing words to and audio hint suggesting a couple of words to work into the sentence.
Used with an adult’s help, you can create virtually any kind of speech activity with Language Builder. The combination of the recording (which kids love) and the flexibility (which teachers and SLP’s love) has made Language Builder very popular.
In her review of Language Builder, she goes through all the settings of play thoroughly and she has quite a few images from the app to give you an idea of what play is like. At the bottom of the review, she has a summary of what she likes about LanguageBuilder. Best of all, she is having a drawing for a free promo code of Language Builder. Just go to her blog to enter the raffle!
