London, UK (PRWEB) November 02, 2011
Award winning app development company, TBoxApps this month launched two new apps catering to speech and language therapists/pathologists. With a rapidly growing use of iDevices in classrooms and therapy clinics, clinicians and teachers are looking to iTunes to find tools to replace or support their traditional therapy resources.
Minimal Pair Pack is a flexible app for the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch which therapists or teachers may use to work on speech sound discrimination and production. Designed for children and adults with phonological difficulties, this app is easy to use, with flash card style tasks that can be set up quickly. It may be used by therapists or teachers with a range of clients including adults and adolescents with dysphasia, dyslexia or dysgraphia; by teachers of adult literacy; therapists working with children who have language and literacy needs or those working with people for whom English is a second language. The program targets sounds in the initial position of words, with over 700 words in the pack.
Odd One Out Pack is designed to work on semantic reasoning skills. With a choice of either three or six cards therapists, teachers or parents can set the level of difficulty of the task. Clients using the app choose which item displayed is the odd one out, and are encouraged to discuss the reasoning in making a decision.
Both apps use the engaging Widgit symbols and allow for adjusting the nature of the task by choosing whether the content issymbols + words, words only or symbols only. The apps both chart progress within a task and the summary table can be emailed from the app.
To celebrate the launch of the apps, both will be half price for two weeks from 2 – 16 November 2011.
Usually $29.99 (US) each, during the promotional period, the apps will be priced at $14.99 (US) each. In the UK, the apps will be £10.49 during the promotional period, down from £20.99. In Australia, the apps will be $15.99 (AUD) during the promotional period, down from $31.99 (AUD).
