Match2Say is the matching game for children that have difficulties producing some sounds. While they play they say the words and improve their articulation skills at the same time. Children will learn their sounds while playing!

Engaging Artic Memory App
As an Elementary SLP, I am constantly looking for new ways to work on articulation. This app is a nice addition to my artic toolbox. Works like a basic game of memory, but with specific sounds for students to practice. Students choose their sound and then pick from a variety of levels (number of cards), as well as modes (word, phrase, sentence). The kids enjoy it and ask for it in therapy. Good real life up to date pictures, however there are occasional odd/unexpected pictures.
My students ask for this game over and over! Kids can practice at the word or phrase/sentence levels. When multiple players are playing, different sounds can be chosen, but they cannot be customized for a particular student, so sometimes students get words that do not contain their own target sound. When this happens, sometimes I have the other student say the word or sentence as well. Also, only one word position can be selected at a time for all of the sounds chosen for the game. The names indicating whose turn it is change before the second card has completely flipped, which has been confusing for some of my younger students. They want to see the star awarded on their name if they make a match, but they can't see it until their next turn. I would still recommend this app, though, because it is motivating and moves more quickly than when using regular Artic cards!
Matching Artic Game
I originally did not think I'd be overly impressed with this app. I must tell you, though, that my students who are on the autism spectrum love it.... and that is a most important endorsement!!! It is a simple matching game with three levels of play within which you can target specific phonemes in different positions within words. You can also target more than one sound or placement within the same game and can select one player or multiplayer. I like the straight forwardness of the app but more importantly the students enjoy it!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
