Listening for Descriptions: Adjectives such as colors, big/little, happy/sad, clean/dirty, hold/cold, stripes, spots, soft/hard, round, square and more!
Listening for Directions: Concepts such as on, in, out, on, out, up, down, behind, line up, sit down, stop, underline, cross out, underline, and more!
Listening for Grammar & Meaning: plurals, verb tenses, pronouns, preposition concepts, and negation!
Listening for Stories with Pictures: A story is read with accompanying pictures and sound effects, followed by questions about the story such as who, what, and where questions.
Listening for Stories without Pictures: This activity is essentially the same as above, except the child is not shown pictures during the story. The child must stay focused and imagine the story, then answer simple questions about the story. An animation after the story shows some aspect of the story.
Features include: Easy, Intermediate and Advanced levels within each activity. Auto Advance/Drop makes the questions easier or more challenging, depending on your child’s choices; Bubble game included for a fun break; data collection, pop-up reward animations, individual and group play for up to 75 users; text on/off feature available to work on reading decoding and comprehension, options for 2, 3 or 4 choices to be shown.
Pros: Group data collection makes it easy to work with multiple students. The app uses a big variety of receptive tasks so SLPs can target adjectives, basic concepts, I really appreciate the ability to increase difficulty for each student (beginner, intermediate, advanced and 2-4 picture choices) within the app.
Cons: In future updates I would love to be able to make more selections within each skill. For example, in the Listening for Grammar section I would love to be able to select certain skills (like pronouns, verb tense, etc.) and exclude others.
Look for the app in the iTunes store if you’re interested.
