This is a great review of our LanguageBuilder speech app by Nanette Cote. Nanette has a blog called The Next Chapter in my Speech World. On her blog, she posts reviews of apps and games, and she also has all sorts of tips for practicing SLP’s. She has a lot of great information. Her blog was also voted one of the top SLP blogs of 2012.
In her review of Language Builder, she goes through all the settings of play thoroughly. You will have a good feel for how the app works and what you can do with it by reading what she has to say. 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!
Our Language Builder speech app 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.
