The R App

Synapse Apps, LLC
[ This app may no longer be available for download ]

From the makers of "Pocket SLP - Articulation," a wildly popular application among speech therapists, comes a state of the art speech therapy tool specifically designed for parents to help their children with the pronunciation of those notorious Rs.

R is a complex sound that has a reputation for being one of the most difficult to address without consistent direction and practice. With the R sound in particular, "practice makes perfect!" With the R App for Parents, now families can practice in the comfort of their home or on the go.

This application provides easy to understand tips provided by practicing speech pathologists and highly detailed diagrams for the tricky tongue positioning that R requires.

The R App for Parents provides stimulus cards that allow R practice at the beginning, middle, and end of words. Because R is often difficult to achieve, this application also offers practice with R in a number of different combinations (er, ar, ir, or air, ire, or rl). Once your child is making progress with the R words, then parents can choose to include the words within sentences with our sentence flashcards. With over 600 images, there is plenty of practicing to be done!

Best of all though is "The R App for Parents" allows parents to enter the names of their children and track their progress! Parents can "score" their child's responses by selecting "correct, incorrect, or close" buttons. This app will save each practice session and even allows for the results to be emailed to other family members or speech therapists.
Our verdict: Meh!
  • The R App is a poorly rated app (2.5-star).
