So you may have heard about this guy named Erik X. Raj. He's an awesome SLP and blogger. Not to mention, he has also dabbled in (and mastered!) the art of app creation. Currently, Erik has 3 really great articulation apps that my students love! If you have you ever watched one of Erik's videos, you can tell he is a very enthusiastic and passionate therapist. His energy comes out in his apps making them fun and engaging.
Check them out...
First up, Multiple Choice Articulation. This app targets the S, Z, R, L, SH, CH, and TH sounds in a "would you rather" game type fashion. This app allows your kids working on these targets to practice using their good speech in more of a conversational context. It really gets the kids thinking and using great language. The screen shot is a sample from the medial L questions. I sure know which animal I would rather clean up after!
Next, I Dare You Articulation! This app targets S, Z, R, L, SH, CH, and TH sounds as well and gets your kiddos up and moving. This is a great app to use with kids that need some movement built into their therapy sessions. Erik has silly dares for each articulation target. The screen shot below is one of the initial TH dares!
Last but not least, Erik's newest edition to the app family, Open Ended Articulation! This app includes over 500 open ended questions that target the S, Z, R, L, SH, CH and TH sounds. This app is amazing for targeting expressive language goals while working on articulation skills.
I love using these apps in therapy. They really help break up the "skill and drill" type therapy sessions. I also like using these apps to see if my kids are starting to carryover their speech sounds to conversational speech. Want to know what makes Erik even cooler than you are already thought he was? He is giving one lucky winner a copy of all 3 apps!
In true Erik fashion... YO! YO! Enter below!
