Three apps for remediating unintelligible speech.
This bundle has three Phonology titles for auditory practice. They are all based on remediating unintelligible speech by repetition of target patterns.
In Phonology a clear speech model is presented for the child to imitate. The child listens to and repeats target sounds at the sound, syllable, phrase, and sentence levels. After listening carefully, they record and play back their own speech and score the result.
Minimal Pairs helps children discriminate between words that differ in pronunciation by one sound. They learn to hear the difference between words like “stop - top” and “rake - wake”.
Phonology Match Ups! is a challenging way to practice your good speech. Say the words as you turn over the cards to make matches. We often use it as a reward at the end of a session.

Speech Therapy for children with unintelligible speech!
Auditory practice at the sound, syllable, phrase, and sentence levels is the basis for phonology therapy. This app uses speech models that separate the target sound from the rest of the word. In this way, the error sound can be eliminated from the habitual motor sequence.
Tap on the sound buttons to listen to the target sound as it is provided in a word, with the target sound separated from the rest of the word, and an exaggerated target sound in the word context. Then listen to the target word used in a phrase, and sentence.
Use the microphone to record and play back the child’s speech.

An auditory discrimination activity.
This app helps children discriminate between words that differ in pronunciation by one sound. They learn to hear the difference between words like “stop - top” and “rake - wake”. They are prompted to “Show Me” the target word by tapping on the colorful pictures and listening for the sounds in the target word and a foil.

A challenging way to practice your good speech.
Match Ups! is one of our favorite games of all time. The first version of Match Ups! was added to our Attention and Memory:Volume I CD in 1996 and we’ve been enhancing it ever since. This version uses the words and pictures from our Phonology and Minimal Pairs apps.
The game starts out with you against the computer. At first the computer plays randomly, but you can make the game more challenging by increasing the computer’s skill level to Beginner, Good, or Expert. When playing in the expert level, the computer rarely makes a mistake—it is very hard to beat. You can also play with a friend. Just type their name in the second box and away you go. If you want to play by yourself, you can do that too.
You can play with 4, 6, 16, 24, or 36 cards on the screen. The cards organized into four groups: Final Consonants, Initial Consonants, Initial S Clusters, and Initial L and R clusters. You can choose simple blue, green, purple, or red card backs or spice things up and choose fun backs.
