Parents will find “Critters” to be a fun way to teach children new vocabulary, ask and answer questions, and practice great articulation. Learn about animals from many different habitats: house, farm, forest, ocean, jungle, grasslands, arctic, and more!
Listen to the word by tapping on the Word button or on the picture, then use the record button to record your voice. The Parentese button will provide a model that a parent might use with a very young child. For a longer model the child can tap on the descriptive buttons–Phrase, Sentence, or Functional Sentence.
SLPs will like the scoring options. A clear speech model is presented for the child to imitate and they can record and play back their own speech. The clinician can choose from three scoring methods. 1. Score each response as correct, distorted or incorrect. 2. Score responses as correct, distorted, substituted, or omitted. 3. Score productions based on whether they are spontaneously correct/incorrect or imitatively correct/incorrect. Great for early language development or children with speech-language disorders with target language age between 2-8 years.
This app is based on the Wild, Woolly, Wonderful Critters game from LocuTour’s Basic Words for Children CD.
