To the farm! app icon

There are not many book applications out there for the iPad that are written and narrated in multiple languages. Each of Sanoen's book applications is translated into at least 5-6 languages.

WH Question Cards Pro Application Review

WH Question Cards Pro app icon

Who? What? Where? When? Why? These are the five types of WH-Questions that we have memorized over and over again throughout our lives. Many of my students, however, have difficulty discriminating between the different types of questions as well as answering them. There are many worksheets, question lists, and products out there to help children work on WH questions, but only a few applications that address this topic. Super Duper Publications has recently taken their WH Question cards to a whole new level. In their first all-inclusive interactive application, there are multiple ways to practice WH questions.

Tense Builder Application Review

Tense Builder app icon

Just when you thought that Mobile Education Store applications couldn't get any better, Kyle Tomson blows it out of the park again! Tense Builder is by far my new favorite Mobile Education Store app. With animated videos, lessons with animation/text/narration, two different levels of play, and an expanding video library, this application is a dream come true! If your speech and language caseload is anything like mine and you have a significant number children on your caseload who are working on verb tenses (for me it is irregular past tense verbs), then this application is a must-have! While other applications that work on tenses have static images that have students determine the verb tense, Tense Builder uses animations to assist in teaching the difference between present, past, and future tense verbs. To find out more about Tense Builder and how to use it in therapy, continue reading!

Visual Attention TherAppy Review

Visual Attention TherAppy app icon

Back when I was in graduate school, I worked at an outpatient therapy clinic that specialized in traumatic brain injury (TBI). At this clinic, we focused a lot on attention skills. We used cards, worksheets with symbols/letters, the radio, and more to work on various attention activities. Now, instead of carrying around the decks of cards, worksheets, and radio, you can bring your iPad to therapy! Tactus Therapy Solutions has done it again with their newest application - Visual Attention TherAppy! Continue reading to learn more about their latest application.
