My First Words-Flashcards app for Speech Language Therapy

Are you inundated with iPad apps? With so many apps out there it is hard to know which are worth your time and money. Chicago Speech and More recommends My First Words-Flaschards by Alligator Apps  for helping to improve your child’s expressive vocabulary skills. This app can be a great addition to speech language therapy sessions.

My First Words-Flashcards is available on both the iPad and the iPhone and is a great tool for parents and speech pathologists. The app provides over 200 interactive and colorful flashcards to engage and motivate toddlers. My First Words-Flashcards is split up into a variety of functional, early developing language categories. You can choose to target specific categories such as: accessories, actions, animals, baby things, body, clothing, feelings, food, mommy’s purse, on wheels, shapes and toys.  Where you start depends on your child or client’s language needs.  There are 8 fun and exciting game modes to play. Oh, and just one small thing. It’s Free.

My First Words-Flaschards is a multi-sensory learning tool that can boost any speech language therapy session. In addition to the colorful and engaging graphics, the words are written and spoken with each flashcard. As your child begins to master the various levels, the sound can be switched off to encourage independent language production.  Don’t like something- don’t worry. This app is fully customizable. Don’t like the font? The size of the font? The case of the letters? Change it! You can even delete or add cards within a category.

I have incorporated this app into my speech language therapy sessions and it’s great. Not only do I find this app to be extremely successful, my clients LOVE it.  The little ones enjoy tapping the pictures to see the next flashcard.  With so many categories, my clients never get bored.  I have seen great progress when this app is used as part of a speech language therapy program.  Chicago Speech and More highly recommends My First Words-Flashcards.

What makes My First Words-Flashcards so great is that with just one app, you have hundreds of picture cards spanning a ton of categories at your fingertips.  Say good-bye to lugging (and buying) twenty packs of vocabulary cards and hello to the future of speech therapy.
