There are many apps available for speech-language therapy…particularly for the younger student. However, it’s not just younger students who need speech-language therapy. Then what do we do?
There are a few developers that offer activities for older students – Tactus Therapy offers TherAppy apps for adults that could be used for teens…Smarty-Ears offers apps for older elementary that could be used for teens (particularly Language Adventures, Social Quest) and soon to be released Language Empires….But until now there hasn’t been one designed for to help teens with conversation skills (at least not that I know of).

As you most likely know by now, I don’t work with adults. But, every once in a while an app comes along that is just too good not to talk about.

So, when I was approached by the President of the Mobile-Education Store, to review their newest release Tense Builder, I couldn’t help but accept. When I saw all it could do, I nearly wept for joy.
No…not Peanut Butter…the Other PB.

Yes, you heard me…I have not one, but two codes for Preposition Builder to give away. Oh, you’re not familiar with Preposition Builder? Okay…Let me review it first – and then I’ll give you the details for the give away. This one will be fun!
I’m always on the lookout for something that helps with comprehension…any kind of comprehension. Or Fluency… When I find an app that I can use for both, I’m ecstatic. Granted, that doesn’t happen very often.
Recently I downloaded a new app called Story Pals. I’ll be honest and say, I was a bit skeptical at first. Heck, if I’m totally honest, Continue reading
