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.
