More About This Product

Overview

This application is recommended for ages 0-4.

The NACD Home Speech Therapist App for NOOK 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

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.

About NACD
The National Association for Child Development is a unique organization with a unique approach to brain growth and development. Founded in 1979 by Bob Doman, NACD has helped parents enhance the development and function of their children for over 30 years. In its work with tens of thousands of clients, NACD has developed an approach to human development, the achievement of human potential, and the remediation of developmental, educational, and neurological problems that is based upon the gestalt of the individual. The efficacy of NACD's Targeted Developmental Intervention has been demonstrated with individuals from infant to geriatric, whose function has ranged from comatose to gifted. It is from this background and experience that the NACD team of neurodevelopmentalists and therapists, including speech/language pathologists, has created the NACD Home Speech Therapist line of speech apps.

    speechlady

    Love this app! As a speech pathologist, this is extremely useful when I'm working with kids (or adults!) with either motor planning problems or just articulation. Looking forward to trying your next one as well!

    My little girl has a problem with speech and i thought this looked like a fun game that would help. I was wrong and waste of money.
