The Target Sound ID app develops phonological awareness, sound order sequencing skills, and auditory attention skills. This app increases the ability to break words down into smaller parts and recognize smaller parts in words. Being able to break words into smaller parts and recognize sounds in words is an important skill that is necessary for early reading and spelling skills. Target sound identification promotes literacy development as well as sound identification 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 the sound in a specific position of the target word. This app was created by Pediatric Speech Language Pathologist Lynn Carahaly, M.A., CCC-SLP.
Requirements: Compatible with iPad. Requires iOS 4.3 or later.
Cost: AU$29.99 (169MB)
