Speech Therapy for Apraxia-1

Blue Whale Apps Inc
The NACD Home Speech Therapist iPad app is a convenient, effective tool for children with Childhood Apraxia of Speech/dyspraxia. It can also be used for:

• adults with apraxia
• speech therapists working with individuals with apraxia
• parents working with children with apraxia
• traditional articulation practice


"A useful tool for teaching CV phonemes to independent learners. It can be used by a speech-language pathologist in a school or clinical setting. It can also be used by parents to practice with their children at home."

What SLPs have to say...

"“It held my preschooler’s interest for about 10 minutes. She exhibits final consonant deletion (sic) and she willingly imitated the words. She enjoyed tapping the picture, imitating the word and swiping. Overall, it is a valuable tool for the Speech Toolbox and highly recommended.”
- Ricki Block, MS, CCC-SLP. Speech Pathologist since 1976 and certified member of the ASLHA.

“The syllables are arranged in a hierarchical order, which is hugely important. Parents can use this app to practice at home what was taught in therapy."
- Tatyana Elleseff, MA CCC-SLP at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey

“NACD Home Speech Therapist offers a wonderful opportunity for organized and leveled speech production practice.”
- Jackie Bryla is a school-based SLPA in California.

Developed by the National Association for Child Development team, including a certified speech-language pathologist, the Apraxia app provides choices of different phonemes to target and moves through a progression of levels that challenge motor planning for speech. 

Working at the syllable level, it begins at the production of single syllables and progresses through increasingly difficult production sequences all the way to the production of sequences of random syllables.

** FEATURES **

• Choose from 8 different consonant groups (for a total of 19 consonant sounds) to target.
• For each group, choose from 8 levels to practice
• Detailed instructions explain how to choose an appropriate consonant group and practice level.
• Move through a logical progression of 8 different levels for motor planning for speech.
• Illustrations and audio provided for each syllable.
• Option to repeat levels, reset, or move to next level.
• Can also be used for straight articulation drill for particular phonemes.

* NEW PROGRESS TRACKING OPTION REQUIRES IN APP PURCHASE. PROGRESS TRACKING IS NOT INCLUDED WITH BUNDLE OR INDIVIDUAL APP, IT HAS TO BE PURCHASED SEPARATELY*
• Track and save the progress for each user so that you can resume each consonant group and level from where you left off. Great for SLPs who wants to use this for multiple users.
• Sharing your progress via email directly from the app allows for communication between therapist and parent. For parents, practice at home and email your progress to therapist.
