Speech-EZ Apraxia Picture Sound Cards (APSC ) Parent version
Speech-EZ Apraxia Picture Sound Cards Pro (APSC PRO)
This is the professional version of the Speech-EZ Apraxia app. This is a system especially designed for treating Childhood Apraxia of Speech(CAS) and severe phonological disorders. It has videos of the Speech-EZ hand cues. these are a vital part of the program and I have found they work really well with my daughter with Apraxia. It also includes over 775 picture sound cards, 45 phonogram cards and 10 number cards plus an IEP goal bank specific for CAS. You can select cards by CVC, CVCV, compound words, one, two, three or four syllable words. The professional version allows data tracking for multiple students, session by session data tracking and storage and email of results.
Auditory Figure Ground (AFG)
Auditory Rhyming (AR)
Hand Cue Sound Match (HCSM)
The Speech-EZ hand cues are a core part of the Speech-EZ Apraxia program. We have been using these hand cues with my daughter (who has Apraxia) for several months now and it has been amazing to see how using the cues really helps her get the correct sound. This app features still photographs of the hand cues and the child has to pick which of three phonogram’s (letters or groups of letters) this represents. In the instruction section of the app it also describes how to make each hand cue, so you can learn the hand cues even if you do not own the full Speech-EZ system.
Sound Matching (SM)
The Sound Matching App works on phonological awareness, auditory attention and sound order sequencing skills. You can choose to work on beginning sounds, ending sounds or a combination. There is a target picture card and the child has to pick which of 2 other picture cards have matching sounds eg “Hatch, tape, pouch which picture ends with the same sound as hatch ?” or” hoof, sap, hoop which picture starts with the same sound as hoof ?”
Target Sound ID (TS)
The target sound ID apps works on developing phonological awareness, sound order sequencing skills and auditory attention skills. You can choose to work on initial sounds, final sounds or a combination. The child is presented with a picture and a choice of 3 letter cards and asked to chose which sound is first (or last) in that word. Being able to break words into smaller parts and recognise individual sounds in words is an important step in early literacy development. This app contains over 350 picture cards.
