Finding interesting and engaging social inferencing photos and scenarios is surprisingly hard even for speech language pathologists / speech and language therapists. Think of this social inferencing app as your helper, taking the pressure out of finding suitable social inferencing photos and scenarios for use in speech therapy sessions.


Inference Pics has 7 social inferencing activities: What has happened?, Jobs, Places, Seasons, Feelings, Conversations and Thoughts.

CHOOSE A SOCIAL INFERENCING ACTIVITY. Tailor your client’s experience by choosing an activity that matches their level. For example, Jobs, Places and Seasons are easier social inferencing activities while Thoughts and Conversations are more complex.

ASK THE FIRST QUESTION. The first question will vary depending on the chosen activity. It asks the user to make a social inference e.g. What has happened? How are they feeling? etc. For example, in the Conversations activity, the first question is always “What are they saying?” Help the child or adult user to form well-shaped answers.

ASK THE SECOND QUESTION. The second question in each social inferencing activity is “How can you tell?”. Encourage the user to find all the clues in the picture and provide verbal explanations when needed.

Scam! Only 70 photos!

Description says over 300 photos. Expensive, but thought I would get a lot of content. Only 70 photos! What a scam!

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your review. I don't understand why you think the app only has 70 photos. I can assure you that Inference Pics does have over 300 photos. If you use the app more you will find lots of activities and a large variety of photos. Please send any other feedback you might have to us by emailing Many thanks
