I love house of learning =)
For the little guys I really like Milo’s verbs, and the ABA flashcards are good too, although some of them address a lot more receptive than expressive language.
Currently, Rainbow Sentences and First Phrases are the two I’m using the most.
I love the speech with Milo apps (esp. the interactive story board) & Kindergarten.com apps
Really like the sequencing with Milo app
Courtney Decker says
I am using Rainbow Sentences a lot, but I also use House of Learning, Fun & Functional, and Categories Center. I love how motivated the students are with the iPad!
Shannon Giles says
I have House of Learning and like it because you can do so much with it and to address to many different objectives.
For my preschool kiddos-I like PlayHome and Click Me Stick Me to work on following directions, spatial concepts, etc. The ABA flashcards are great too–the kids like it so much more on the iPad. For animals Zoola lite is very cute. Injini Lite is a great motivator (I really want to get the full version!) For my older kids, I really enjoy Conversation Builder, Language Builder, AbiTalk Sentence builder, Opposite Day, Articulate It.
There are so many apps to choose from!
I love Fun with Directions for some of my little kiddos because it targets basic concepts and has different levels of complexity.
I just tried out a new one called “Splingo”. Great for following 1-3 step instructions containing concepts. Only drawback is that the martian speaks in an English accent, not SAE. I think my kids still understand it though! It’s very motivating.
I really like using the ABA flashcard apps for the preschoolers I work with. And I like to use playhome to work on following directions and concepts. I am still searching for good apps that address higher level language!
I enjoy using the Story Builder app for all ages and My Suitcase for my younger students.
My favorite app to target language goals are Tapeiko where I can add my own pictures, Milo apps, and rainbow sentences!
I use kg.com apps all the time in therapy and question it.
I love Custom Boards. You can make game boards to go with just about any language goal (describing, social skills, spatial concepts, antonyms/synonyms, wh questions, etc, etc).
I like the Speech with Milo apps. I also really like the Toca apps.
My favorite app to address language goals is probably The Social Express or any of the apps from Super Duper (i.e. following directions, categories, etc.). I also like the Category Carousel from Pocket SLP.
Let’s Talk SLP
I love all the kindergarten.com apps
Since I use all of these apps with my ESL students..I may be headed in a different direction, but I love Montessori Crossword for it’s phonics and spelling practice ideas.
Can’t narrow it down to just one, but anything from Mobile Education, especially Language Builder and Rainbow Sentences. Oh, Prepsition Builder too.
I like many of the new apps I have. I love the Milo apps-very good for the little ones. I just purchased the go-together app from Smarty Ears. I love it because it helps students give reasons why two items go together. It helps them frame the sentence structure needed to do it also.
Kris Ann Clark says
I also love the kindegarten.com apps! I use them all the time.
As of now I use All the Milo apps for language. I have yet to find a good language app for my older kiddos. I’m looking forward to trying this one.
I am loving preposition builder right now :-).
Betty Rich says
I use a ton of the Kindergarten.com apps, as well as ProLoQuo to go. I would love a full version of either of these apps. Most that I have gotten recently are just the free lite versions. Thanks for your blog, Jenna.
I like the playhome app.
Social Express is great for pragmatics and Play Home for some language goals 🙂
I love Storyrobe, Sparklefish, Toca Boca, Articulate it, speech with milo, The Social Express.
I love the Toca Boca apps as well as My Play Home or My Scene.
I recently downloaded comparative adjectives. It has some flaws, but works well for targeting comparatives, superlatives, and basic concepts.
I really enjoy the Toca Boca apps to use when targeting language objectives!
My Play Chef Lite
I love “what’s whacky” card app. It gets the kids talking, laughing, and motivated.
I usually use the interactive storybooks to target language with the younger kiddos. All of my kiddos love the Social Express for pragmatics.
I just got my iPad. I can’t wait to add some of these apps!
Lauren H says
I love to use the interactive storybooks with lots of my kids!
Hamaguchi apps have been in use lately. Need this for d’s teacher to use in class.
I like Fun with Directions; the students enjoy the opportunities to record themselves and improve upon their original attempts at repeating the model.
Hmmm, favorite language apps…Doodle Cast Kids, Clicky Sticky, More Fun with Directions, Draw and Tell.
Kindergarten.com apps, especially the ABA flashcards
The Kirby Family says
I haven’t found an app that I really like, this one sounds interesting though!
The Jones Family says
I’ve been using the ABA flashcards with one of my students in particular and it has been great–he loves it! He loves to swipe to the next picture!
I enjoy the clicky sticky apps.
This looks like a really great app. I would love to add it to my repertoire.
I love Playhome, all Tocas, Milo, Show Me, Fun With Directions…and I am dying for this new app!!!
“Fun with Directions” is great! There are a ton of repetitions to make sure that a kiddo has a concept down solid.
Love your site!! My students are loving all the new exciting activities we have been exploring!! I like the mini mod apps for the higher level kiddos 🙂
I love the Mobile Education apps!
My younger student really love Noodle Words for vocab skills.
I just barely got an iPad, so I am a newbie with apps. On recommendation from someone I got the Sequencing with Milo app and it’s worked pretty well with some of my little ones.
Beth B. says
I just got Custom Boards and am loving it so far!
right now I am loving Rainbow Sentences
Language Forest is a good one to work on a variety of language skills.
SO many I like – Mobile Education store and kindergarten.com apps are high on my list. I see some I don’t have in the comments here, and now I have to try Language Adventures. Aargh – I’m doing a conference presentation in 10 days on apps to use with English Language Learners, and at this rate my presentation is going to have to be twice as long and I won’t be done preparing it until seconds before I start!!
I’ve just recently gained access to an ipad for therapy use so I haven’t enough experience to select a favorite yet but would love to try the smarty ears apps
I love lots of different ones – Mobile Education and Milo apps are favorites!
Love the glow draw app to spice up boring worksheets as well as all the apps Super Duper has put out. I saw the Geek SLP in person this past weekend as well as the authors of this app. I would LOVE to win!
I really like vocabulary builder and all of the ABA apps 🙂
Right now I’m loving Puppet Pals to work on different language goals!
I haven’t found a favorite app to address language skills yet…
Nate, Monique and Haven says
This list alone is a gift! I don’t have any language apps and I’m so grateful for all these fantastic ideas!!
mummy grace X 4 says
I use Picture the Sentence and Rainbow Sentences a lot.
I am still searching for my favorite language app. I am still new to the iPad.
I just got a new ipad. I’m still trying to figure out the apps.
My younger kiddos love Milo’s prepositions
I like Language Builder, Sentence Builder, and Question Builder. The kids like the graphics taht appear when you get questions right.
Itsy Bitsy Spider and Wheels on the Bus for preschool children.
Looks like Smarty Ears produced another home run! The kids will love to play any game in this format!
Love Rainbow Sentences and Splingo!
I work with preschoolers. The Toca Tea Party App always gets them talking!
Miss Cheryl says
I don’t necessarily have a favorite app to address language, but I am loving the pictures from PediaStaff on Pinterest to address language goals.
I like using the WhQuestions app, Toca apps, PlayHome, and Splingo. There are just so many choices out there for addressing language! Hard to find that one favorite – a lot of my little kiddos enjoy the puzzle apps also!
The Toca Boca apps (shopping and tea party) are GREAT. I have a lot of kids with social communication goals, and these apps are so motivating for them to take turns and converse with peers. I usually pre-teach the language/themes through books/games and then they get to use the iPad app as a special treat at the end of the week!
I enjoy the Milo apps a lot!
All of these apps sound great. I haven’t used my ipad in therapy yet, but I am going to start checking them out! Thanks all.
I don’t have my own iPad for therapy yet. I know! I am able to use one of the sped teacher’s iPad so I put a few free apps on there (kindergarten.com). I can’t wait for the day I have my own and can really explore the amazing things I can do in therapy.
I had to laugh at your comment about going crazy when the dice goes off the table. I am the same way!
This looks amazing! It meets my 6th grade language standards. I use my personal ipad at my elem. and middle school and I also hate the falling dice. What I did to help the pawn problem was add color-coded stickers to spots at my table. You get the color pawn that matches your sticker. You also lose a turn to move (but still have to answer questions) if you lose the dice.
Thanks for all your advice!
I love all the ABA/Kindergarten.com apps that help with vocabulary.
Memre Culwell says
I use Puppet Pals and Lakeshore Letter of the Day
I use a lot of Language Builder and Sentence Builder for sentence formulation, plurals, etc.!
Talk It Up says
The Owens says
I use some of the Milo Apps…and thanks to SRN, love using AFV app too!
I love the Milo apps!
I love all of the Mobile Education Apps; especially, Language Builder, Story Builder, Question Builder, Rainbow Sentences. I also love SPLINGO! for concepts and following directions.
Heard In Speech says
Cool! I haven’t gotten too into apps yet because I do not have an iPad or iPod, but I will keep this one in mind for the future!
Jaxon's Action says
I use the kindergarten.com apps a lot
I love the Grasshopper Apps books and just downloaded all of the Hallmark book for free. We use them a lot to describe pictures or work on pronouns…just about anything!
I just got an ipad today! I don’t have any apps as of yet, but this app looks really interesting!
My favorite apps to use with my adult clients with developmental disabilities are Language Builder and Story Builder.
My younger kids love Splingo!
I like Language Builder a lot! Also, My Playhome, Cookie Doodle, Draw and Tell by Duck Duck Moose!
I’ve used the Wh- Questions app, but my kids really liked the Easter apps you had posted (especially the spot the difference one). The two weeks before Easter were awesome with those apps. :]
My Playhome is my favorite therapy app
Carrie Manchester says
My Play Home is great for my younger students…Scribble Press is awesome (and free) for older (grade 1+)
Speech with Milo
I love Rainbow Sentences, Same Meaning Magic and Toca Boca apps. The Kindergarten.com apps are great too.
Speech with Milo. The sequence one.
I like the Toca Boca apps right now!
For my older students needing reading comprehension and vocab work, I love an app called “Reading for Details”. It has a short passage, then a multiple choice question. If you’re correct, you get to fill in a space on a bingo board. If you’re incorrect, you get another chance to read the passage and try again.
The Sherokys says
Using rainbow passages a lot right now.
Christi Sheroky says
I love Splingo for concepts and following directions.
I used Kindergarten actions and my preschooler loved it! I just purchased a new Ipad 2 for my speech room so I would love to have a new language app!
Shared on FB! I use a lot of storybooks, and Playhome. I really need something like this!
Julie V says
I like the …Builder apps (i.e. Language Builder, Questions Builder, Conversation Builder, etc)
Splingo is a great language app!
Why, Language Adventures, of course!
The Super Duper fun decks.
Just Jen says
rainbow sentences is the only one I have right now!
Would love to try this out!
I don’t have a favorite yet… maybe this can be my favorite 🙂
Sentence Builder Teen; looking forward to adding apps!
Rebecca Jacobs says
I love the looks of this!! I really like see touch learn pro.
I love Story Builder, Language Builder, and Sentence Builder! I use it for grammar & artic carryover!
We have been promised iPads in our district, so I used my budget money to get an iTunes giftcard, and am impatiently waiting to hear about our orders!
