Articulation Station App
In my last resource review, I reviewed the Webber Phonology cards for children with Phonological errors in Speech. This time I have chosen to review the Articulation Station Application. Many Speech Pathologists are familiar with this app, and I have had a number of parents enquiring about the app recently to help their child with articulation errors in speech. Unlike phonological errors where the sounds are replaced or dropped off, articulation errors tend to be a variation of the sound, produced differently due to difficulty putting the lips, tongue or palate in the right place, e.g. a lisp.
Some of the reasons why this app is useful include:
- Examples of every sound in the English language.
- Plenty of different examples of each sound in Initial position (at the start of words), Medial position (in the middle of the word) and Final position (at the end of the word).
- Examples of common sound clusters in English words such as ‘s’ sound clusters (i.e. st, sk, sl, sp, sm, sn), ‘r’ clusters (i.e. kr, tr, gr, pr, br) and ‘l’ clusters (i.e. kl, gl, pl, bl).
- Activities to work on each sound or sound cluster at word, sentence and story level.
- An accuracy calculator that lets you know how well your child is doing (as a percentage score) just by pressing the tick or cross for correct and incorrect sound productions.
- Option to record data such as percentage of accuracy over several weeks to help monitor your child’s progress.
- A voice recorder which allows your child to listen to their own voice and allows them to monitor their progress and listen to their own correct and incorrect sound productions.
The articulation station app is available to download at the apple store on all iOS devices.
