Apraxia - 2 Syllable Words

The NACD Home Speech Therapist app for iPad is a convenient and effective tool for:
  • children with Childhood Apraxia of Speech/dyspraxia
  • adults with apraxia
  • use by anyone working with individuals with apraxia, either therapists or parents
  • can also be used for traditional articulation practice

Targeting specific patterns of articulation within 2-syllable words, this app is a fun way to practice basic speech sounds and motor planning. Because the emphasis is on the individual's production, the parent or therapist should be an active participant, providing the user with feedback, reinforcement, and additional modeling. This app is not intended for independent use by the child/student.

Speech Therapy for Apraxia - 2 Syllable Words is intended to be the next step in a progression after the one-syllable words of our previous app, Speech Therapy for Apraxia – Words has been mastered.
