A Professional Quality Speech Therapy Tool

If you're looking for a little help with your child's speech skills but you don't want to shell out hundreds of dollars, here's an app that may be able to help. The Speech with Milo app takes a look at all kinds of action words and how to properly use them. This isn't just a dull learning tool though instead it's presented in an entertaining and engaging way for kids. They will head off on an adventure with Milo the mouse who always seems to be busy with a variety of actions such as "play," "count," and "bounce."

The best iPad apps for teachers

The app itself is priced reasonably but where this one falls a little short is the fact it hasn't been updated in a few years. It would be great to see more content added, even if that is available as in-app purchases, so that the app continues to be useful to parents and kids as they learn. The app has four out of five stars from users and parents have left plenty of positive comments but a few have mentioned it would be nice to see the entire offering (graphics and content) improved upon.

An Inviting Environment

The Speech with Milo app offers kids an inviting environment where they can learn and have fun. The app is ideal for toddlers and up to the age of seven. While all kids can benefit from the app it is also idea for those with special needs such as Down Syndrome, Asperger Syndrome, Autism, cognitive delays, developmental delays, language delays, and speech delays. The way the app works is that the verb is spoken to the kids and then Milo the mouse does that action so that kids fully understand. If you'd rather you can turn this option off and just have the verb display as a written word on the screen.
