Halloween App: Treat Street HiDef
I have been using Treat Street ($1.99) in my sessions for the last two weeks and my clients just love it! This is a fabulous app if you want to work on role-playing skills or just practice saying "trick or treat" for Halloween. To play, you dress your character up in their costume and then head out down your street ringing the doorbell or knocking on the door. The door opens and you get a treat for your bag. You are also able to monitor the treats in your bag as you go along in the game and can practice sorting skills at the end of the game by sorting all the treats in the bag. There are also "tricks" that get handed out like a half-eaten piece of chicken or a rotten fish, which the kids just find hysterical!
This past week I had a new client on my caseload with the diagnosis of CAS (childhood apraxia of speech), I took this app out and got her to interact and had her saying /n/ sounds for "knocking" on the door and /m/ for "more" candy. The app is just so motivating my clients don't want to stop playing! Totally worth your 2 dollars trust me!
