Multiple Choice Articulation - He Says
Editor's Note: Speaking of Apps bloggers Jeremy Legaspi, MS, CCC-SLP, and Megan Sutton, MS, RSLP, CCC-SLP (C), both discovered a new app to tackle articulation. Today, read Jeremy's take on the app, then come back on Monday, Dec. 10 for Megan's review of it, when you'll also learn how to enter to win a FREE copy of Multiple Choice Articulation.
Need a good articulation app for some of the older children you work with? Well here is your answer! This is a fun an engaging app that I see working well for those of you who have middle-school children on your caseloads or just want to change up boring old flash cards. Now don't get me wrong this app could be appropriate for a variety of ages, but I think it's harder to find stuff out there that keeps older children engaged and willing to work.
As you can see in the photo the apps works on the following sounds: s, s blends, z, r, l, sh, ch, and th. You select the sound you want to work on and the position in the word you would like it. There is an option for the child to read the question, hear the question, or hear an answer. The "hear the answer" option is very useful because it's quite humorous and you can also tie some language in, as well, by comparing your student's answer to the answer that is provided.
The app contains more than 500 sound specific multiple choice questions, as well as 150 minutes of silly thought-provoking audio of questions and answers! For $9.99 I think it's worth it as it is something totally different and refreshing! Multiple Choice Articulation is available for both iPhone and iPad.
