Ratings and Reviews
Love this app
I absolutely love this app. It works for so many of my auditory comprehension and auditory processing students! The 4 groups provide up to 12 level activities in each area and more than one student can work on the app during the same session. This app has the ability to add background noise with a sliding volume lever! Each prompt requires the student to wait to respond until the complete prompt is given which helps with impulsive students. My students enjoy the basketball reward offered at short intervals which is very motivating. I am so happy with this app that I often recommend it to my co-workers.
It Has It All & Is Research Based!
I love that this application works on multiple goals and you can use it with multiple clients at a time with data collection. Sometimes, with all that it features, it can get a bit overwhelming. That can be a blessing or a curse depending on how much time you spend prior to a session setting it up. I always spend a lot of time researching and trialing an application prior to using it with a client, so it gets easier the more you use it. What I love about this application is that it works on following different types of directions and gets progressively more difficult by adding additional concepts. In addition, you can add background noise.
One thing I really like that changed from the last version is that there are now two different reward games that a user can play! I would probably play either game with older or younger students. There are also more settings, but I still am not sure why there is an option to enable/disable audio since this is an auditory-specific application.
Go To App for Auditory Processing
As an SLP I keep a folder containing Language Processing apps and this is one of my 'Go To' apps for both younger students (one step direction with location concepts) and even upper elementary autistic students. Use it to teach retrieval strategies, e.g.self-repeat key elements in direction, chunking, etc. I like the fact that 'before/after' concepts are placed in different parts of the directions. Definitely recommend this to SLPs.
