A tool for speech therapists, teachers and parents. The teddy bear helps you and says what the cards represent. You can record the child’s speech directly in the app.

Make speech therapy fun with Fonemo. When you buy Fonemo you get the s-sound automatically. You can then buy the speech sounds f, g, k, l and r in the app.

"I really liked that the app is easy to setup and understand. I think this is a nice alternative to the standard speech practice sheets that are often sent home." says Amanda Blackburn, reviewer on the website iHeartThisApp.

Fonemo is a tool to help children with speech sound disorders. With Fonemo you can practice for instance the sound s in many ways. To make the training of speech sounds fun, Fonemo works as a game. Saying words out loud is part of the game. You can record the childs pronunciation and together you can listen to it.

If you have played the game memory you can play Fonemo. Pair cards with images that are alike. In Fonemo all the images contain words with the current speech sound. Whenever you wonder how a word is pronounced the teddy bear can help you. Poke the teddy in the belly and teddy will tell you what’s on the card. Then you can press the microphone that you will find on the game board, repeat the word and listen to it. The recorded sound will play automatically, but you can also press the speaker if you want to listen to it again.

Fonemo is easy to learn. The child does not have to be literate since the game is based on images. The cards contain words with the current speech sound in the beginning, the middle or in the end. You can also practice the speech sound adjacent to a vowel, a consonant or mulitple consonants.

Do you want to see something funny? Poke the teddy in the belly before you turn the first card!

How to play Fonemo

Turn a card by poking it. Turn a second card. If the two cards look the same, it's a pair. And you have won it! If you play as a single player, pair all cards on the board.

If you are two players keep pairing cards until there is a mismatch. Then the turn goes to the other player. A green light will help you keep track on who’s turn it is. When you have matched two cards and got a pair, it is the same players turn again, the green light will then flash to remind you.
