MY FAVORITE APPS

Now that the holidays have come and gone and you have received new technology, here is an updated version of my list of favorite apps. It’s important to note that if an app is more RECEPTIVE in nature, you can work WITH your child to pull out EXPRESSIVE components of the app. Make them talk, speak their answers, count out loud, repeat answers….this would allow you to work on BOTH articulation and language related goals (i.e. answering questions, labeling pictures, putting words together, following directions etc while also practicing their weak sounds.)
Enjoy the list and feel free to email me if you would like to have YOUR favorite app added to the list!!
