Four Apps for Articulation Practice by Erik X. Raj

Review by Nanette Cote, MA, CCC-SLP
Oh happy day! I am one, lucky speech pathologist because I have been testing out not one, but FOUR apps by the dynamic: Erik X. Raj. Both my school and private clients have been pretty fortunate too and many keep bugging me to break out my iPad. Like Erik’s other app: I Dare You Articulation, the four apps in this review target /s, z, r, l, sh, ch, th/. Let’s take a look at the new gems on my iPad.
First up is the recently released: Secret Mission Articulation, a favorite among many. The most entertaining aspect of this app is the robot-like voice that states your secret mission message. This game plays like hangman, except you have unlimited opportunities to guess the letters in the secret message answer, which incidentally includes the target sound in the word position that you establish. My trigger happy friends quickly learned that their guesses were limitless, so many just hit all the alphabet letters without spending any time trying to guess the answer. This did not bode well for me, so I made up a rule that only ten letters could be selected when trying to guess the answer, and they bought it! After all the letters in the word are revealed, an “enter” key appears, that when tapped will bring you to another screen where you can hear an audio of the answer and select the next message.
