An awesome speech therapy app! .Help your child learn to visualize and comprehend simple sentences!

From theimums.com: "I think the developer has done a great job with this app – it is engaging, simple to use, is very adjustable allowing it to be used by students with a range of abilities, and has the ability to track settings and data from multiple students. All this for $9.99 – a real bargain!! Highly recommended!"

“She is eating an apple under the tree.” What does that sentence really mean? What would it look like? Picture the Sentence is an exciting app designed to practice language and auditory processing tasks at the basic sentence level. This app offers three different levels of difficulty so the child can learn how to attend to important elements of a sentence and “picture it,” attaching meaning to the words and eventually forming mental pictures without visual support. It is also an excellent choice for anyone who is trying to learn and understand the English language. **Turn the voice commands off and the text feature on, and this game can also be a great way to practice basic reading comprehension skills too!

To watch a demonstration of this app and its features, please check our video on You Tube: http://youtu.be/gaiE7OQV-AQ on the HamaguchiApps channel.

We have incorporated a cute “Pick-a-Door” game, which can be selected at varying intervals so the user can take a break and have a little fun. The user opens each door until an animal comes out and says, "You found me!"

Options in the Settings Include:
• Choice of color drawing icons or stick figures
• Levels include: Easy (slow, with visual support staying on the screen) Intermediate (faster rate with pauses, with visual support flashing briefly on the screen) and Advanced (no pausing or visual support)
• Text on/Text off
• Choice of subjects: Pronouns (He/she/they) or nouns (boy/girl/children)
• Sandtimer (This delays the presentation of the picture choices so there is a greater challenge to the child’s working memory.) It is enabled in the "default" mode but can be easily turned off
• Sentence Types: Subject + verb, subject + verb + object, subject + verb + prepositional phrase, subject + verb + object + prepositional phrase

Another Home Run from Hamagachi!

This app is wonderful in its simplicity. There are complete, clear & concise instructions on how to use the app and how to adapt the app to the student/child. This app can be used with more than one student/child, the progress can be tracked then emailed. This app employs the use of pictures to help increase the expressive & receptive language skills and helping the student with their cognitive thinking processes, auditory processing skills and their visual skills. Children can take the concepts of the individual words as shown with the pictures and apply them to another picture that sums up the sentence. If the child chooses wrongly, there is no judgement associated with the incorrect choice, just another chance to choose again. When the correct picture is chosen the sentence is spoken again. Well thought out and very engaging. Highly recommend this app!

Wonderful cognitive and auditory learning game!

This App provides a wonderful opportunity for children to strengthen their auditory processing skills as well as cognition. The game encourages the user to "picture" the phrase, to think about what it really means, and what it would look like in picture form. For example, the phrase shown is "The boy is eating," the game then provides an option for a sand timer for thinking-time, and finally the user picks the picture that best matches the phrase previously shown. There is even a fun 'pick the door' activity that pops up after so many phrases are completed. Children's progress can be recorded and even sent through email. The App also has multiple user options.

Great for auditory processing and memory retention!

Picture the Sentence HD is another great speech language app from Hamaguchi! Because it is fully customizable and has scaffolds learning to increase competence, it will provide many different opportunities to work on auditory processing and memory retention skills. I highly recommend reviewing the Q&A to get the most out of the app. users will enjoy the door game as a break/reward or to work on turn taking. with an assortment of sentence types and data tracking, this program is very versatile. I highly recommend this app for parents, therapists or educators wanting to work on these skills.
