Apps for Speech Therapy have so many uses! Home programming and speech homework is just one of those benefits!

This set of parent handouts is developed for parents of children who are 2-6 years old. Please determine if the handouts meet your student’s needs and abilities before sending it home. The handouts focus on language skills but also include literacy and speech targets as well. It explains appropriate targets for each app and how to elicit those skills. The handouts encourage time spent on tablets to be interactive. Each handout explains 2-4 ideas for developing and expanding language skills specific to that app.

Time spend with technology is happening in EVERY child’s home. Use these handouts to help teach parents to make that time productive!

8 Apps for Early Communicators for Paid Apps Handouts

Each handout is included in both color and black and white.

The apps listed are ALL available for Apple products. Ten of the apps are also available on Android through the Google Play marketplace. The direct links included on the pages are all for iTunes, but if the app is available for android that is also noted at the top of the page.

All free apps included are currently ‘forever free’ apps meaning the developer has made them free and they are not just on sale. The paid apps recommended are all under $3 each in cost.

The cost of apps is subject to change at any time. Only app developers can control the prices. I cannot control app prices, sales, or changes. Please check out current prices before providing to families or making purchases.

Speech Room News does not own the copyright for any apps included. Please download the app and leave feedback for the developers about the benefits of the apps for speech and language therapy. I do not control any app content or problems. Please contact the developer for related issues.
