Mack the Dog is an animated story about a loveable dog who gets into all sorts of mischief, while hunting for his teddy bear! Hidden within the animated story, are 65+ first developing nouns for your child to identify and label.

This application was written and developed by Australian Speech Pathologist, Alana Noakes, to fill a gap within the iPad application market for comprehensive and research-based early language development applications.

This application supports vocabulary and comprehension development, by utilising a research-based approach to language learning, in a series of fun, interactive and engaging activities.

Included with the animated story book, your child has 7 different learning levels to complete including;
Level 1. Matching 65+ nouns

Level 2. Identifying 65+ nouns
(i.e. touching the target picture when asked 'Find the clock'.)

Level 3. Labelling 65+ nouns
(i.e. Answering the questions, 'What's that?' or 'Who's that?')

Level 4. Identifying functions
(i.e. 'Find something that drives' or 'Find something that takes photos')

Level 5. Identifying categories
(i.e. 'Find a farm animal' or 'Find a item of clothing')

Level 6. Identifying parts of an object or animal
(i.e. 'Find something that has wings' or 'Find something that has wheels.')

Level 7. Following two-step instructions
(i.e. 'Touch the butterfly and then the bucket').
