Articulation Station Pro is an articulation app created by Little Bee Speech. The app is created for use by therapists, parents and teachers to target articulation impairments at a variety of difficulty levels. While there are a variety of apps targeting articulation, Articulation Station Pro is the app I open most on my iPad for articulation treatment. I’ve seen a variety of comparative lists that talk about the differences in speech apps. You can compare number of pictures, difficulty levels, and drawn pictures versus real pictures. All that information is great but sometimes you just want to know a person’s personal preference! This is my ‘go-to’ articulation app. It’s easy for me to quickly use and my kids love it! The app targets articulation sounds (p,b,m,d,n,t,k,g,f,v,ch,j,z,sh,th) in initial, medial and final position of words, sentences and stories. Blends are targeted in (l,r,s). Each word has 60 target words and all together Articulation Station Pro has over 1,000 target words. The photo above demonstrates the interface for single words in the flashcard mode. SLP’s can choose the target sound and position within the word. Select the green or red button to keep data. The record button allows you to record a child’s answer and play it back for self monitoring. The other option for single word level practice is a matching game. It’s what my students ask for the most! The sentence level allows the SLP to pick two levels of difficulty. The student can select to rotate a single word within a sentence, as seen in the picture above. You can also select novel sentences. The story level includes short stories that include picture prompts. The stories are loaded with target words. At end of each story, a short comprehension check in included. Another great way to work on carryover and generalization during reading. The scoring function provides data tracking for multiple students. Up to 6 students at one time may be targeted for group sessions. An update was released 7/24/12 that includes the ability to select and save word lists. Check out a video tutorial here. Making lists is a big improvement for children with multiple articulation impairments. It allows therapist to remove words with other conflicting errors. In future updates I would love to see the ability to ‘repeat’ a word list! For example if I am working on initial /k/ with a student in single word flashcards, after the great ‘You did it!’ award at the end – I’d love to select ‘repeat! Overall, I don’t think I can give a better recommendation than to say that of all my articulation apps, this is the one I use most. It’s user friendly and what I recommend most to parents. Parents can buy the regular version of Articulation Station and select only the sounds they need to practice. Little Bee Speech is being very generous and giving me two copies of Articulation Station Pro to giveaway! Enter via rafflecopter below! a Rafflecopter giveaway **Edit: I forgot to mention, you can try out Articulation Station by downloading it here. It comes with the sound /p/. A great way to test it out and determine if it will fit your needs! On the iTunes store you will see both Articulation Station and Articulation Station Pro. The Pro version includes all the phonemes included. The regular version allows you to buy sounds individually.

I love this app! My only comment is that I wish they would give up options for the sounds for correct/incorrect. I need to leave the sounds on so I am sure I gave the student credit but some of my kids get discouraged when hearing the “incorrect” sound. Other than that it is just about perfect!
Kristin Cummings, M.S., CCC/SLP says
I love this app. I have only bought a few sounds but my students and I love using it during therapy. Highly recommend this app to anyone!
Christi Sheroky says
I want this app so bad!!!! It looks amazing and my kids would love it!!!!!!!
Currently I use Articulate it quite a bit. I have the free version of Articulation station and like it.
Brandon Wigboldy says
I’ve heard nothing but good things about this app.
I was at a speech conference last week and the presenter talked about this app. I would love to have it and try it out with my kiddos.
Wow this app looks awesome!
Carrie Manchester says
I have a few of the sounds of this app, and a few other article apps. This one is great, and i’d love to have all the sounds!
Mommy Square says
I have been wanting to get this app to use with my son who is apraxic. 🙂 Thanks for the opportunity! Glad I found your blog, too.
i currently use articulate it by smarty ears!
I use ArticPix but have been jealous of my SLP friends with Articulation Station!
I don’t have any articulation apps for the ipad yet. Articulation Station looks like a great app to have. Thanks for the opportunity to win.
Looks great! Can’t wait to try it!
I do not have any articulation apps at the moment, but would love to make this one my first to use with the kiddos once school starts back up!
I love the free version of this app and would LOVE LOVE the full version so I can use it more with my kiddos!
I’ve tried this app and loved it! Would be great to add it to my artic toolkit!
I have the free trial of this app, and would LOVE the full version so I can have more than one sound!! I love the stories and carrier sentences. Too bad none of the students who are working on /p/ can read! Right now I use ArticPix.
I don’t have any articulation apps yet…would love to get one!
Melissa Allen says
I have used Artic Pix and one other app that I can’t think of the name of off the top of my head…my kids loved it last year but were getting bored with the words/pictures so something new would be welcomed I’m sure!
Amanda Villosio says
Thank you so much for the opportunity to add a great tool into my bag of tricks!!!!!
McGuire Momma says
This a fantastic app. I love using the free version with younger and older kids as well. I would LOOOOVE to use the entire app!

All I hear is great things about this app! Would love to use it with the kids!
Betty Rich says
I love the lite version for /p/ that I have on my ipad, but oh how I would love the new full version. My artic kids need to use the ipad occasionally to motivate them, so the ‘language kids’ don’t get to have ALL the fun!! lol.

I want this app!!!! Thank you so much for the opportunity to win a copy! I really appreciate when developers and colleagues offer these promo codes. I was able to use the lite version with a student this last year and he liked it…so did I. I currently have Artic Pix and Articulate It.
I have been using the phonological processes app. But would love to have this one too.
This would be great for my little guy!
Shannon Giles says
I currently us articulate it from smarty ears.
I’ve only used articulate by smarty ears. I don’t LOVE it, and wouldn’t call it my favorite. Maybe this one will be though! *fingers crossed*
Jen K says
I’ve used Articulate it! by Smarty Ears, but would love another artic app!
I haven’t used my ipad yet in therapy – I’m spending this summer collecting apps!
My favorite artic app is Articulation Station but I only have a few of the sounds. I also like Articulate It.
Just loaded this app over the weekend. Getting ready for school to start!
I would love to win the update! Thx!
I have used artic pix, but don’t have the full version. Having this app would be fantastic!
They seem to be so dull. We have Articulate It.
I’ve used the free version of Articulation Station and I absolutely LOVE it!
I have Pocket SLP and it’s okay but I spent so much on it I have been hesitant to buy another artic app, I have been looking at this one and really want it!
Kimberly Laster Blunt says
This is so exciting! This give away could not have come at a better time! Fingers crossed! 🙂
Nikki Heyman says
I am a SLT in South Africa. The cost of buying this app when converting to Rands is more than I can afford. I am the only SLT in the country (that I know of) that is blogging, tweeting and I am about to start reviewing apps. I would love Articulation Station to be one of the first apps I review!
The Furman Family says
My daughter has severe aphasia and we would love to have this full app – thanks for the opportunity to try and win!

I am just entering the world of apps and always look for the comments from consistent users in the field. This is info I can pass along to the students I teach/supervise.
Thank you for this giveaway. This app is on the top of my wish list for my son.
I have two daughters with ASD and they think this app is SO much fun! I’d be delighted to get the Pro version. Thanks so much for the offer 🙂
I only have the free edition of this app and is it my favorite! I am dying to have a copy of the pro version so I can use it more frequently with articulation kids.

We have ArticPix which we like 🙂 I would love to win this for my daughter’s SLP
Rachel Smith says
I have yet to find the “perfect” articulation app…BUT I’ve heard that the app you’re giving away is THE BEST!! Fingers crossed!
I actually don’t have a favorite articulation app yet. I’ve had my eye on this one since it first came out. I’m planning to request it at my school as soon as we get back. Wouldn’t it be nice to gift me a free copy so I can be all ready to go come September??? Please pick me!!
Kim Kidder says
My two favorite and most used artic apps are Pocket Artic and ArtikPix. I would LOVE to get my hands on Articulation Station Pro though and could definitely see adding it to the top of my favorites list 🙂
The Ards says
I have been researching this app and have found it to be the one that looks the best. I am starting a new job in pediatric home health and would be SOOOO excited to win this!
This would be wonderful for my son!
What an amazing app! I don’t have any favorites as of yet, but I hope to have some soon! 🙂
I love Articulation Station. I have seen it and I want it so much. It is such an awesome app.

Not yet, but I hope to soon!
I love Articulation Station!!
Megan Scholtka says
Haven’t used a ton of arctic apps yet – but this one looks pretty good! I’m excited to download the demo version and try it out! any other “staple” apps for a brand new therapist? Starting my first real SLP job in a couple weeks here (been working as a SLPA)… so excited!!!
This looks great! We tried out the p tonight. I look forward to talking with my son’s slp to see how we can best use this!
I really like Pocket Artic as well!
Andrea Schneider says
Would love to win this and I know my students would too! I use several articulation apps to change it up!
I like Match2Say, the kids love to record their voice and listen to their speech
The Jones Family says
I don’t! I’m just starting to look into apps. My refurbished iPad is on it’s way and I want to be ready for the start of school in September!
This would be a wonderful addition to my iPad as I’ve tried everything under the sun to elicit sounds with my kiddos using other apps. Can’t wait to bring it into my school!
I’d love to have Articulation Station to encourage me to use my iPad!
I like ArticPix but I would love a copy of Articulation Station for my iPad!

I would love to win this… It would help my students greatly! Thank you for the chance! Also I like VAST apps and Smarty Ears Speech apps to help articulation.
Frank C. says
We don’t own an articulation app yet (full one), but I can already say this would be our favorite app. We have the free version and my son absolutely loves it. I can see his articulation improve dramatically just by using it with him daily.
What a great app give away! I like that it has all of the things we would need without carrying it all around! Thanks for all of your good ideas!
I would love to use this app. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

Jacqueline Whitney says
I have been wanting this app for sooo long! I have the free version, and my finger has lingered over the ‘buy app’ so many times in the app store! I would LOVE to have this app before the start of the new school year. I have trialed the free version and I know that this is an app that I would use frequently with my artic and phonology kids. Pick me! 🙂

I have downloaded a few free articulation apps including the free version of Articulation Station app. I am new to this ipad therapy thing and I would love to be able to use this with my students this fall! It is great that it allows groups of up to 6!
Sounds great! Can’t wait to try it!
I have used the free version and really like it. The kids like the red spin button.
Would love to have the complete app!!!
Mary Martin says
No favorites yet– still in school. I kinda like the hands-on stuff as opposed to the apps, but I’m coming around!
I’d LOVE this complete app..I love all of your activities and I use and abuse your TPT store for my kids all the time..they LOVE your activities!
Thumb Not Fumb says
This would be a nice alternative to the other articulation apps I use. Looks like there are so many more options! I would live this for my iPad!

I have purchased a few of the phonemes to use in Articulation Station and think it’s great!

My SLP just introduced us to Articulation Station and I was thoroughly impressed with how attentive my son was doing a matching activity. I would have to say, based on my sons reaction, that would be our new favorite
