Speech Therapy For Apraxia

The NACD Home Speech Therapist app for iPad, Kindle, Nook and Google Play 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

Developed by the National Association for Child Development team, including a certified speech-language pathologist, the Speech Therapay for 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.

Postive Reviews

“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 homes." - TUAW.com

“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."

"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
