Jenna at Speech Room News has another great linky party happening right now for favorite language apps (http://speechroomnews.blogspot.com/2013/10/love-it-list-it-language-apps.html).Here are the three I use the most in my speech room:
1. Language Forest by Synapse apps at https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/language-forest/id477838255?mt=8
It has decks for:Associations - guess my job, words that go together
Categories - animal habitats, animal types, food groups, transportation, “name the category”
Describing - Texture
Guess The Word
Naming - colors, shapes, transportation
Wh Questions - who, what, when, where, why, and how
And, you can add your own decks, too!
2. The Bag Game
It addresses: Categorization, verbal description skills, question-asking skills, deductive reasoning skills, other early reasoning skills; such as, same/different and salience by using the graphics alone, and short term auditory memory skills .3. Question Sleuth app
Played like the game Secret Square which is out of print. You can chose pictures that belong in categories and hide a star under one picture in a group of anywhere from 6 to 42 pictures. Great for using attributes to describe the pictures, comparing pictures, categorizing, etc.
Have you used any of these apps in your therapy sessions?
