What you should know:
Concerned that kids can quickly outgrow articulation apps? That won’t happen with Articulation Station—an app with six different skills settings for each level of speech production.
Initially, the app helps kids master the letter sound within a single word, using flashcards and matching games to encourage sound production at either the start, middle or end of the word. Once children can consistently produce the sound in isolated words, the app progresses to sentences where the word is either isolated or rotating. The rotating feature is truly fun, resembling an arcade game where kids spin the wheel to see the next target word they should incorporate into the sentence. Good graphics and satisfying spin sounds will keep kids pressing for more practice. Finally, the story section of the app has two different levels allowing kids to test the target letter within the context of an engaging story. Bright pictures reinforce the target word, and you can tap the picture anytime to hear the sound modeled correctly.
Just like the other levels of the app, the ability to choose the specific sound production to practice means you can customize the story to kids’ individual needs. This intuitive app is simple to set up and start, but you’ll need to work in tandem with your child’s speech therapist to decide which sounds to work on, and in what order.
