Children with Down syndrome, autism, cerebral palsy, and others that have motor speech disorders can benefit from this app.
Welcome to the Apraxia Picture Sound Cards app (parent version)! This app was created for individuals with childhood apraxia of speech (CAS) and severe phonological disorders. It is the very first app specifically created for the unique needs of the child with CAS. Pediatric Speech-Language Pathologist and apraxia specialist Lynn Carahaly, M.A., CCC-SLP, developed the Apraxia Picture Sound Cards app. Children with Down syndrome, autism, cerebral palsy, etc., that may also have a motor speech disorders can benefit from this app.
This app includes over 775 colorful and engaging picture cards, 45 phonogram cards & 10 number cards, and the Speech-EZ® Hand Cues in video format. This app allows you the ability to customize your therapy session by creating specific stimulus sets based on the child’s performance and ability level.
Children with CAS must undergo a different treatment method than a child with an articulation disorder. Therefore, an articulation approach is not recommended for a child with CAS. Unlike traditional “articulation” therapy cards, the Apraxia Picture Sound Cards app provides you with the necessary flexibility to select specific sound sequences to target in a given session such as CVC (consonant_vowel_consonant) words (i.e. “bed”), CVCV words (i.e. “baby”), compound words (i.e. “cupcake”), one syllable words with blends (i.e. “cloud”), two syllable words (i.e. “apple”), three syllable words (i.e. “banana”), and four syllable words (i.e. “helicopter”). You may also select specific words to practice various movement sequences by place of articulation: bilabial-to-bilabial, alveolar-to-velar, etc. Essentially, you are in more control when selecting appropriate targeted speech motor plans.
The Apraxia Picture Sound Cards app provides you with convenience, organization, and session-by-session data collection for a single user. You are able to track and store your child's session-by-session data allowing you to easily see your child's measurable progress. Session data can be stored and easily retrieved. This parent version allows you to store data and track progress for a single user.
The Apraxia Picture Sound Cards app is a therapy tool for The Speech-EZ® Apraxia Program. It should be understood that the Apraxia Picture Sound Cards app is not The Speech-EZ® Apraxia Program, nor is it a substitute for speech therapy with a certified Speech-Language Pathologist.
