As a result of COVID-19, many students are out of school, learning from home. Parents are wondering if there is a way to work on their child’s speech and language goals during this time. The answer is yes!
In addition to reading together and using everyday experiences to target language use and vocabulary, there are several phone and tablet apps that are educational and aid in speech and language development. Here is a list of some of our therapists’ favorite speech and language apps:
Pick the sound your child is working on and you’ll find flash cards, stories, and matching games with the targeted sound.
Using an interactive dollhouse, you can work with your child on vocabulary, action words, and following directions.
Work with your child on understanding spatial concepts (i.e. in front of, behind, under, and on top).
This is an app for learning how to make letters, numbers, and shapes. It can also be used for language development! Practice early reading skills by writing out short words and labeling items.
