iPad Apps For Speech Therapy

Tech Tuesday

Today is Tech Tuesday (I apologize for completely missing last week) and I thought I would talk about our iPad again.

Do you have an iPad or other mobile device? Do you use it with your children?

Yesterday I spoke about needing to help Malachi with his speech in order to help him learn to read. We have an iPad and I knew that there must be resources we could use for speech therapy on there.

Here are some of the Apps that we already have that could be used to help with speech therapy:

I also went on an Internet hunt for iPad Apps to research and investigate further. I found a couple of individual apps that were reviewed by Apps for Homeschooling (awesome site, by the way) and some other great apps.

Individual Apps:

Did you know that Starfall now has an app?  We have long been fans of Starfall, so I was very excited to see them moving into the app world. 

I was excited to find a few great list of apps specific for Speech and Language that I want to explore.

Lists Of Speech Therapy Apps:

What apps do you use for helping your child with their speech?
