Excellent Artic App

I use this app on almost a daily basis! I especially love the videos that show my students how their articulators should move to make the target sound. It’s helpful that you can switch between front and side views as well as slow down and speed up the videos. I also really like that you can record videos of your students and share with parents. I haven’t used the create your own deck feature yet because I just don’t have time right now, but I am so happy that this is an option and look forward to using it in the future. The theme selection is amazing! I mostly work with middle and high school kids, so the “clean” theme is perfect because it doesn’t look “little kid-ish.” It is truly an app you can use with any age - very versatile! I appreciate that there are game options, but I haven’t used them as my students prefer physical board/card games. I do wish there were more minimal pair decks (although I’m happy I have the option to create my own). Overall, this is a wonderful app and I look forward to using it for many years!

Great for Teletherapy Visuals

I am an SLP working in the public schools. This app is great for teaching tongue shape and placement for students in-person and on Zoom, particularly for sounds whose placement is not readily visible. I love that you can pull the videos up while working on practice cards for a quick review. My students love to watch the videos forwards and backwards! Being able to use the slider to move through the video is also super helpful to combat the lag that sometimes happens with Zoom. I wish there was the ability to annotate on a paused video or use a laser pointer (to, for example, highlight points of contact). As for now, it works to take a screen shot of the video, then switch to the photo app and annotate there.

Great app for SLPs to target speech sounds

I am a pediatric SLP working in private practice. I enjoy using this app with all of my speech sound clients. I love that I can edit sounds based on each client and have those sounds saved. I appreciate the different themes, including being able to use no themes for my older clients. Some of the navigation isn’t intuitive, and some of the games are a little challenging for kids to play, like the story maker. But overall, I love the app and love all of the updates! My favorite feature is the videos showing the speech sounds. This has been a game-changer for my kids who are visual learners. The app is well worth the cost!
