Articulate It Pro {app review}

Do your speech only kids get bored easily? Mine definitely do!  I'm constantly looking for ways to change up therapy and keep them engaged.  I have a series of apps that I rotate through (on top of the normal drill and drill play activities), but I'm always looking to add more.   I was recently introduced to Articulate It Pro from Smarty Ears, and I have to tell you it will be added to that rotation.

Check out this video overview of the app:

To begin, select your players and then select the activity.  There are four activity choices: FlashCards, Matching, Stories, and Guess What.

You can also select your targets for each child: phonemes, phonological processes, manner of articulation, and number of syllables.

Everyone phoneme is listed as a choice to target:

You can also preview the wordlist and deselect words that you would rather not target.

One of my clients' favorites is the matching game.  They always ask to play it!

As with most Smarty Ears apps, Articulate It Pro collects data for you.  It is specific by phoneme, position, and process.  It gives you data for correct productions, approximate productions, and incorrect productions.

Another feature I really like is the certificate option.  When a child masters a sound or a sound in a given position, you can print off a certificate for them.  My clients love this because it affirms them and makes them feel proud!

Articulate It Pro is a great app for busy SLPs.  It makes planning and implementing articulation therapy so easy.  The multi-player function makes it perfect for group sessions while still targeting each child's individual goals.   I really like that I can choose between phonemes, phonological processes, manner of articulation, and number of syllables when setting up the targets for my clients.  The games are engaging, and my clients keep coming back for more. 

If you're visual like me, you can check out the video tutorial below:
