Our Language Builder speech app is designed to help students learn how to 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.
This review was written by Kristen Cummings, a SLP in St. Petersburg, FL. She includes lots of pictures and goes through each setting of the app in detail. You’ll know how to play before you even buy the app by reading it!! Kristen has many kind things to say.
Kristen’s blog, Simply Speech, has many app reviews and other helpful tips for speech pathologists and other educators. Her blog was named one of the top 100 speech pathology blogs of 2012. Definitely worth checking out.
