Welcome to the Syllable Counting app! Syllable counting promotes literacy development as well as syllable inclusion during speech production tasks. Memory also plays a small part in this task, as the child must internally hold onto the word in their mind while analyzing how many syllables they heard in the target word. Pediatric Speech-Language Pathologist Lynn Carahaly, M.A., CCC-SLP, developed this Syllable Counting app.

The Syllable Counting app includes over 250 colorful and engaging picture cards: one syllable words with consonant blends, two syllable words, three syllable words, and four syllable words. The child hears a target word and must determine the number of syllables in the word.

Excellent app

This is an excellent app for working on counting syllables. I have used it with a couple of the kids I work with and so far they have all done really well with it. One of my kids did well just looking at the picture, one needed to look at the picture and the word and one needed to use tokens as an extra visual to count out the syllables. Most importantly they were all very attentive to this app and I think they will do very well as we continue to use this app. In each session we looked at roughly 15-20 picture cards and I think we maybe saw one 4 syllable word. How many are in the app? I wish more would show up quicker so that I don't have to skip ahead to find some. I like that the app is very easy to use and even my kids picked up quickly on how to use it and asked if they could move to the next picture or push the button to hear the word again. For the price of the app, I think it would be nice if the app kept data that you could see at the end of the session. It could show a basic percentage or how many correct on the first, second or third try. Not a deal breaker just a suggestion. Also, I think it would be great if, when looking at the written word, you could tap each syllable and it would glow blue or something. It would be a great visual cue to add to an already great app. Overall, I highly recommend this app and I appreciate your hard work putting out great apps that really help a lot of children.
