Speech Sound for Kids is an app that can provide many hours of speech therapy and early literacy programming.
Generally speaking, it’s for children aged approximately 4 years – 7 years, however younger and older children may find it useful depending on their individual needs.
The app helps children produce and explore the 22 consonant sounds of English using a multi-sensory approach.
It also allows for the users’ results to be recorded and sent to a their therapist or teacher. It’s perfect for home practice!
Each of the sounds is represented by a friendly little character called a Sound Buddy (like Tapping Tessa and Painting Pony in the videos below). With the help of the Sound Buddies, children learn to identify, discriminate and produce each sound – and they start to learn letter-links too!
In time, children become familiar with more and more Sound Buddies, thus increasing in their phonemic awareness (speech sound awareness) and understanding of correct speech sound production. Listening and production tasks are provided for both single sounds and also for each of the sounds in words. There are over 300 fun pictures to help with word practice!
Several sounds can be combined in fun games after they have been “studied” individually, allowing children to develop a strong awareness of the similarities and differences between sounds.
