Syllable counting promotes literacy development as well as syllable inclusion during speech production tasks. Memory also plays a small part in this task, as the child must internally hold onto the word in their mind while analyzing how many syllables they heard in the target word. Pediatric Speech-Language Pathologist Lynn Carahaly, M.A., CCC-SLP, developed this Syllable Counting app.
The Syllable Counting app includes over 250 colorful and engaging picture cards: one syllable words with consonant blends, two syllable words, three syllable words, and four syllable words. The child hears a target word and must determine the number of syllables in the word.
Requirements: Compatible with iPad. Requires iOS 4.3 or later.
Cost: AU$29.99 (120MB)
