Description

Say Bananas has been designed through collaboration between children, parents/carers, speech pathologists and a team of engineers and developers. It is designed to help children with speech sound disorders master their pronunciation skills. It cleverly integrates speech therapy exercises into a brightly-themed, engaging platforming game to keep children wanting more. It is the only app out there that is clinically validated and backed by 10+ years of academic research.


Say Bananas enables children to practice specific consonants, vowels, and consonant clusters they are having difficulty with. Children can practice their sounds at the word or sentence level. Both single- and poly-syllabic words are offered, and poly-syllabic words also vary by stress pattern (e.g. dinosaur, banana).


By entering the Settings menu, the user can select the words for practice and the amount of practice to be done each day. This lets the child and the speech pathologist know if they are getting the recommended amount of practice to accelerate progress.


Say Bananas uses a classic game format where children collect “banana coins” that they can trade in the game store for avatar upgrades and power-ups. The game features multiple levels to keep children engaged through different themed islands and provide them with challenges to overcome. By embedding speech practice into a classic game environment, most children find it easier to complete the high amount of practice recommended for accelerated learning.
