App Description

Articulation Games is a comprehensive, flexible, and fun speech-therapy, iPad app that was created by a certified speech and language pathologist for children to practice the pronunciation of over forty English phonemes, organized according to placement of articulation. It includes thousands of real-life flashcards, accompanied by professional audio recordings and capability of audio recording.

Articulation Games takes drilling with flashcards to the next level by incorporating gaming components and a reward system. Children will have fun practicing phonemes by playing four different and flexible games:

1. Flashcards
2. Memory game
3. Sweet Spinner: Children will spin the colorful spinner to get a flashcard or a surprise animated candy that actually pours down from the spinner tube.
4. Artic Wheel: Children will spin the wheel to get a flashcard or a reward (an animated pet).
5. Articulation Games allows children to practice different phonemes in all positions of words, and at all levels of difficulty (word, short phrase, and sentence level) in ALL of the games.
