A child friendly online app for listening and spoken language
Rehabilitation support for children is on the go with the Cochlear HOPE Words app for the iPad!
Children and parents love this app and so will you! This version of the HOPE Words app features the full alphabet for easy learning of the different sounds in the English language. Your child will simply touch on the word or image, and the image will enlarge with a voice narration from one of the world’s leading auditory verbal therapists, Nancy Caleffe-Schenck, M.Ed., CCC-A, LSLS Cert. AVT. Also, the HOPE Words app features parent and professional tips on how to use the app to improve listening and spoken language with children.
