From the makers of "Pocket SLP - Articulation," an application wildly popular with speech therapists, comes a state of the art speech therapy tool specifically designed for parents to help their children with the pronunciation of those notorious Rs.
R is a complex sound that has a reputation for being one of the most difficult to address without consistent direction and practice. Home practice significantly improves the speed and accuracy of progress.
Parents can begin by reading easy to understand tips provided by practicing speech pathologists and viewing highly detailed diagrams for the tricky tongue positioning that R requires.
Then parents can begin using the stimulus cards that allow R practice at the beginning, middle, and end of words. Once your child is making progress with the R words, then parents can choose to include the words within sentences. With over 600 images, there is plenty of practicing to be done!
Best of all though is "The R App for Parents" allows parents to enter the names of their children and track their progress! Parents can "score" their child's responses by selecting "correct, incorrect, or close" buttons. This app will save each practice session and even allows for the results to be emailed to other family members or speech therapists.
The application for children, Animal Babies, will show you the sounded animals and their cubs (today there are 20 animals, 60 pictures and 40 sounds).
ANIMAL BABIES SOUND is optimized under all PDA screens,
transfer on the SD card is possible.
Sounds and photos of animals:
Cow and Calf
Goat and Kid
Cat and Kitten
Horse and Foal
Sheep and Lamb
Dog and Puppy
Duck and Duckling
and also Chickens, Raccoon, Monkey, Crocodile, Lion, Pigs, Tiger, Panda, Bear, Elk, Penguin, Camel and Wolves.
Installation will require from 12 megabytes of free space.

This app contains over 120 colorful pictures/words in initial, medial, and final positions of words between the two phonemes. Each picture also contains a silly sentence using words with the same phoneme for extra practice at the sentence level. Audio is provided to name each picture allowing for more independent practice for students and auditory bombardment.
Each app provides the opportunity for data collection during therapy. The therapist can email the data at the end of the session to save in student records.
This app is a great way to practice sounds in therapy or at home with family and friends.
to hear back the user's own voice through headphones after a specific delay in seconds.
The voice is echoed back automatically, while standard audio recorders
would require multiple button clicks to duplicate this process.
The tool has a wide range of applications and can be used effectively in training
for accent reduction, foreign language pronunciation, diction, articulation,
singing, public speaking, and interview practice.
Please visit the EchoHacks website to learn how to use the tool effectively
for your speech training.
EchoHacks Speech Trainer was created by the inventor who wanted to reduce his
foreign accent, and improve his public speaking skills. He developed the app
after realizing that no tools were available that would assist him to focus on
deliberate practice (focused high repetition drills) in speech training.
* The app will only function with a phone headset.
* The app is a speech training tool and does not record audio.
* The app will run in the background.
*** TROUBLESHOOTING: Device is not recognizing the headset connection ***
There are some devices that do not auto-detect a headset connection, so the
the app won't run. In this case, you can use the SoundAbout app to overwrite
the default headset setting. Click on the Media Audio section and select Wired Headset.
In most cases, this will solve this issue.
If you encounter any problems, please leave a message on the website forums
