From theimums.com: "I think the developer has done a great job with this app – it is engaging, simple to use, is very adjustable allowing it to be used by students with a range of abilities, and has the ability to track settings and data from multiple students. All this for $9.99 – a real bargain!! Highly recommended!"

“She is eating an apple under the tree.” What does that sentence really mean? What would it look like? Picture the Sentence is an exciting app designed to practice language and auditory processing tasks at the basic sentence level. This app offers three different levels of difficulty so the child can learn how to attend to important elements of a sentence and “picture it,” attaching meaning to the words and eventually forming mental pictures without visual support. It is also an excellent choice for anyone who is trying to learn and understand the English language. **Turn the voice commands off and the text feature on, and this game can also be a great way to practice basic reading comprehension skills too!

To watch a demonstration of this app and its features, please check our video on You Tube: http://youtu.be/gaiE7OQV-AQ on the HamaguchiApps channel.

We have incorporated a cute “Pick-a-Door” game, which can be selected at varying intervals so the user can take a break and have a little fun. The user opens each door until an animal comes out and says, "You found me!"

Options in the Settings Include:
• Choice of color drawing icons or stick figures
• Levels include: Easy (slow, with visual support staying on the screen) Intermediate (faster rate with pauses, with visual support flashing briefly on the screen) and Advanced (no pausing or visual support)
• Text on/Text off
• Choice of subjects: Pronouns (He/she/they) or nouns (boy/girl/children)
• Sandtimer (This delays the presentation of the picture choices so there is a greater challenge to the child’s working memory.) It is enabled in the "default" mode but can be easily turned off
• Sentence Types: Subject + verb, subject + verb + object, subject + verb + prepositional phrase, subject + verb + object + prepositional phrase
*Progress/Data tracker that allows you to collect and save data, email it or print it

I'm in love...

I have a new favorite educational App. This App is wonderful for people learning how to make a sentence. What elements you need etc. It is particularly great if the user doesn't get that words together make a sentence, as the pictures help them make the sentence. There is visual/text/and spoken support...Meaning it is an App that can be used even if you can't read. Great work, and look forward to more great Apps from this Developer.

This is an amazing app and very useful in helping understanding and comprehension in ASD children and those with severe speech issues. I have previously used physical props to illustrate sentences in this way but this app is so appealing and gives me another wonderful tool in bridging the communication gap with these special little people!!! Thank you very much... well worth the $$$$

We love your apps Patti!

Picture the Sentence HD is a simple and effective tool to use with my child who has speech difficulties. I LOVE that I can generate a report to send to his SLP so she can see what we've been working on and track his progress. This is a brilliant app!
