Ratings and Reviews
Best feature- the ability to record, use & type of pictures to elicit a complete sentence, a variety of student centered themes to choose
What could be better - data collection, emailing results & tape recordings, eliminate signing in after each sentence
I really enjoy using these cards. They’re great for teaching a variety of actions and pronouns. However, they would be more inclusive if there were a wider variety of ethnicities represented among the pictures.
Using it ine elementary speech thereapy sessions for kids with autism
Language Builder is a highly effective app designed to help students increase their expressive language skills; but it can be used for much more! The app houses pictured scenes that users are asked to create sentences about. This isn’t a written language task; the user formulates the sentence in their mind and then says it aloud while recording it. This voice record feature is highly motivating for our students! They love hearing themselves say the sentences that they have formulated about the pictures and enjoy playing with their voices in their recordings! The pictured scenes are appropriate for users of all ages and serve as a great teaching tool for a variety of skills. WH-Questions can be asked about the pictures, complex stories can be created by linking the pictures together to tackle creative writing skills. One of my favorite ways to use this app is as a self-monitoring tool for speech production targets (e.g., articulation, fluency and voice). Students can listen to their recordings and judge if they used their best /s/ sound, or if they used their best ‘smooth speech’.
