Autism Language Learning

Autism Language Learning by TalkTime Pediatric Speech Academy is a wonderful app to show children/adults with Autism and other delays proper us of verbs/pronouns in video form. This app includes a play/record button so you can practice the sentences with your child along with the video. You have choices of verb + ing, singular pronouns + is + ing, plural pronouns + are + ing and mixed pronouns + is/are + ing. I really like how simple the app is. There is no distractions when working with a video in the app and the buttons are easily controlled at the bottom. You can have the modules on the side while the video is playing or you can hide the modules and have a full screen option. There is now an option for in-app purchase of custom modules that I have not tried out but seems like it could be p pretty neat feature for this app. I have used this app over at my child's school with the speech teacher a bit and they really liked the simplicity of the app and that there was little to no distractions within the app while working with the children. They used it by playing the video and then going back and muting the next one and having the child say the correct sentence on record. Over all I would recommend this app to SLP's and parents with children who need help in these areas and need little to no distractions within an app :)
