I gave a ‘Lightning Talk’ at Therapy Ideas Live in London last week and I’ve promised to put a list of the apps recommended on this blog. In my allocated 5 minutes, I discussed an app for a few different areas of language target that you could work on in therapy sessions – thinking mainly about social and functional uses of language e.g. telling stories and telling jokes.
You can see a video of the talk here.
Suggested apps were as follows:
Introducing Ourselves. Scene and Heard Lite (free)
Making Choices. Choiceboard Creator (free)
Expressing Opinions. Talking Mats (lite version = free)
Giving Instructions. Cake Doodle (£0.79)
Sharing Experiences. Photo Grid (free)
Telling Stories. Puppet Pals (free, £1.99 for adding your own photos), Story Time Sounds (free)
Telling Jokes. Knock Knock Numbers (£2.29)
Hosting Others. Toca Tea Party (£2.49)
Asking Questions. Guess the Person (free)
Problem Solving. Faces iMake (£2.29)
Initiating a Game. Air Hockey (free)
