Is your child working on saying V correctly? If 'yes,' we can help!
How This App Works:
Speech Therapy: V is a comprehensive app designed by a practicing, ASHA certified speech language pathologist. This app describes how to say V and then how to teach it to your child. You will learn how to systematically practice V with your child using research proven techniques in the comfort of your own home. All the needed materials are provided as well as game ideas for every level of practice. There is also a bonus section of photo flashcards that you can bring up on your device for a quick practice.
This app is VERY different than any other app on the market made for speech therapy practice at home.
I was tired of children with articulation needs NOT making progress! I took a good, long look at the materials available for parents. While shiny cards and fancy apps look fun, they are NOT what children need. Articulation practice should be natural, happen throughout the day, and occur with common words that your child frequently says.
So, I created this not so fancy app to help parents reach their goals!
In order for your child to make progress with articulation goals, he/she needs to be able to say the desired sounds within words and then practice that skill in a functional setting such as at home using words he/she actually says! For example, a child may say V correctly in the word "valley" while playing a game; however, he/she most likely won't say that word again for weeks or months. Not really functional.....
On the other hand, if a child practices V by saying "five" when doing math, carryover of progress is likely to happen!
This articulation app is created with this philosophy in mind. It will take a bit more work for parents, but it will pay off in the end!

What you can expect:
This app is a tutorial which includes explanations, teaching materials, functional games, and flashcards all wrapped up into one app! You can expect to do a bit of learning at first, and then, carving out a few minutes each day to practice with your child. It only takes a few minutes, seriously! It is basically a crash course on how to be a speech therapist in order to teach V to your child.
Who should use this app:
~Motivated parents whose children are having difficulty saying V
~Children who are already in speech therapy and need to work on carryover
~Children who have been working on V for a long time and haven't quite mastered it!
~Children who don't qualify for speech services even though they have trouble saying V
~Speech language pathologists who want word lists, teaching techniques, and flashcards at their fingertips
Who made this app:
This app was created by a practicing speech language pathologist who understands how much practice is needed for articulation (speech) therapy and knows how parents really have all the power to make the biggest difference. However, parents don't always have access to everything they need. Speech therapy can also be expensive and this is frustrating for everyone!! To reach more families, she made this app for a VERY affordable price so everyone can get learning today.
This app is a supplemental, home program. If you have concerns about your child, we recommend a consultation by a speech language pathologist before beginning any home program.
