As you know, I like to occasionally feature great products or new ideas to help SLP’s deliver the best services possible to improve the speech and language of our clients. Below is a guest blog by the team at Speech Blubs introducing their new app:
Speech Blubs we get it.
Your child isn’t speaking on the same level as his/her peers.
The Speech Blubs app is interactive, educational, and fun tool that helps pre-school kids jump start their speaking. This SLP-approved app is based on the science of mirror neurons and video modeling to get kids speaking.
Parents also like because it offers quality smart screen time. Speech Therapists (SLPs) recommend it because parents can: engage with their child, let him/her be in charge, practice with them on a regular basis, role play like there’s no tomorrow, take lots of pictures, and bribe their child with digital candy!
Speech Blubs has 25 sections with over 1,500 activities (including new words weekly, building sentences, numbers, colors, songs, etc.), and most importantly, it includes children in the videos.
SLP’s say “The student is more engaged using this for speech activities than if I was to model the sounds myself,” and “The use of children in it to model sound and oral motor sounds is much more engaging for a young student.”
The practical ways parents use it include: drawing the words with your kid; singing songs; finding the words in your toy box, in the kitchen, in the playground, etc.; using it on the go; and even creating a before-going-to-school routine.
You’ll see, kids become very engaged! Speech Blubs will help turn your child’s vocalizations into babble (we call them “blubs”J), and then into words!
