Review of Language Builder Speech Therapy App

Posted on: by Kyle | 1 Comment

This review of our Language Builder speech therapy app was written by Tatyana Elleseff.  Tatyana writes the “Smart Speech Therapy” blog, an award winning blog focusing on bilingual speech therapy.  She reviews apps, books and has other tips for speech therapists and parents.   This week, she reviews our Language Builder expressive language app.

At it’s core, LanguageBuilder is designed to be the first stepping stone in helping kids learn how to make inferences and build a narrative.  Students are presented a photograph, and then asked to record a sentence about that photograph.  There are 10 modules with 20 related photographs in each, 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.  The photographs are high quality and age appropriate, the the record/playback feature is a big hit with kids, they love to hear themselves.  LanguageBuilder is a great stepping stone for our more advanced apps, StoryBuilder and ConversationBuilder.

LanguageBuilder is part of Mobile Education Store’s award winning ‘Builder’ series of education apps.  Mobile Education Store has won over 70 app awards and has been named Educational App Developer of the Year for 2011 and 2012.

I purchased the Language Builder app last week and have used with a variety of students on my school speech caseload. They love to be able to operate the recording of their sentences. They speak with better rate and volume when knowing we are recording it. We work on structure and vocabulary and short term memory skills. My fluency students use it for picture description tasks and they can listen for easy onset when we play it back. The pictures are relevant and exciting. This is one app that I know I can turn to for effective and high quality speech therapy sessions. Thank you!
