Purpose of App: Speech Sound for Kids is an iPad app for promoting phonemic awareness, auditory discrimination and speech sound production using a multi-sensory approach. (From iTunes)
Strengths: Comprehensive coverage of subject, detailed user manual, supports multiple profiles as well as data collection and sharing. The many activities available are engaging and hold the attention of the youngest users.
Weaknesses: Requires adult assistance — not designed for kids to explore independently. Poor voice recording quality. While the app does support multiple profiles, these are not useful for group sessions. Not interactive. Amount of detail in user manual is a bit overwhelming.
Suggested Audience: It is recommended for children aged approximately 4 years to 7 years; however, younger and older children may find it useful depending on their individual needs. (From iTunes)
