Sentence Builder for Special Needs Children is designed to help those with special needs learn to build sentences, work on basic punctuation, capitalization, and more. In the app, the child is shown a graphic, and a sentence is spoken. Then, the child needs to drag the words into the correct order to make them into a sentence. There are three difficulty levels in the app and quite a bit of content. At level one, sentences are simple and only the words the child needs are shown. By level three, additional punctuation is shown and extraneous words are added to the mix. Sentence Builder for Special Needs allows for the addition of custom data and sharing by way of Drop Box. Also, this app supports data tracking multiple users and customization for each user within the app! Download on the Apple Store- http://apple.co/1kYDXC6
Multisyllabic with words, phrases and sentences for speech therapy and special need education is specifically designed to help children learn to articulate two to five-syllable words. The app uses visual, tactile, and auditory cues to help children break down longer words into each syllable, which as you know, can be difficult for children with Apraxia of Speech, Autism and various speech disorders. In the first level, there is a large graphic showing a word, and the child must tap it three times, if it has three syllables, for example. Syllables are spoken as they are tapped, and the word is spoken after the child drags the syllables into their correct positions. In phrases, the child will hear phrases with a visual cue, in the form of a picture. When the picture is tapped, the word is shown and spoken. In record mode, the user records each phrase. Sentences add in more length in a full sentence, more punctuation, and again the option to record. There are many word lists in the app, including animals, people, geography, transportation, food, an U.S. states, but teachers and S.L.P.s can also chose to sort words by phonemes and their position in the word (initial , medial, and final). This app also allows for customization, including turning on or off the bonus award, the sound upon tapping an image, correction answer reinforcement, and audio instructions to make a word. Multiple users are supported, as is data tracking.
