The developer of the only clinically-validated language therapy application MITA that was downloaded by nearly 3 million families, brings you a series of Speech Therapy apps:
Speech Therapy Step 1 – Preverbal exercises
Speech Therapy Step 2 – Learn to sequence sounds
Speech Therapy Step 3 – Learn to say 500+ words
Speech Therapy Step 4 – Learn articulation of complex sounds
Speech Therapy Step 5 – Record your own model words and exercise articulation
Speech Therapy Step 1 is for toddlers and preverbal or nonverbal children. Children use their voice to interact with characters on the screen: animals, lights, stars, and other objects.
TYPICAL TODDLERS AND INFANTS
Encouraging your toddler vocalizations may help him develop better control of his speech apparatus and improve word pronunciation.
SPEECH THERAPY FOR NONVERBAL CHILDREN WITH LANGUAGE DELAY AND AUTISM
Why is your child not speaking? He sits alone in a dark and safe space. He doesn’t want to leave this safe shelter. He flinches when called upon. He trembles when looked at. The sounds are too harsh. The light is too bright and scary. People are too unpredictable. Because of his fear, the baby never wanted to talk to anyone and did not dare to meet anyone's eyes.
Speech Therapy Step 1 has been developed to help your child control his voice. As he sits in his usual shelter, he will hear a calm, quiet, and affectionate voice calling on him to respond. On the screen, everything is calm, safe, and predictable. He raises his voice to affect movement: to fly the balloon, to blow off leaves, interact with animated characters and so on. Controlling objects on the screen makes him more confident using his voice. Once confidence has been built, we can move to more complex exercises like Speech Therapy Step 2+ to learn words and shape his articulate speech and Language Therapy (Mental Imagery Therapy for Autism or MITA) to train his language and cognition.
