Finding articulation to be a struggle?  That one sound just isn’t happening?  Check out Speech Tutor from Pocket SLP, an SLP Center favorite!

 

The app provides a “see-through” face, which you can switch to a side or frontal view.  You can then see exactly where the tongue goes within the mouth, relative to the palate (roof of the mouth) and the teeth.  You can also watch the shape that the lips make.  There’s also a nice visual that “shows” the air.

 

Sounds offered include /p/, /b/, /t/, /d/, /k/, /g/, /n/, /m/, “ing”, “th” (voiced and voiceless), /f/, /v/, /s/, /z/, “sh”, “ch” “j”, /l/, and /r/.

 

This app is a great one for kids who aren’t responding to auditory corrections or who are having trouble figuring out just where to put their tongue for specific sounds.  What better way to demystify articulation?
