App of the Week – My PlayHome

App Name: 2 – 6 years oldspeech therapy

Ages: 2 – 6 years old

Cost: Free on Itunes for Ipad (Full Version $3.99)

Description: An interactive home that allows the user to manipulate the people and things inside the various rooms. For example, it allows the user to open the fridge, make mom sit on the chair, make baby eat an apple, etc.

This app is great for:

  • functional vocabulary building (items around the house)
  • verbs (make people sit, sleep, eat, drink, jump, etc.)
  • pronouns (he is sleeping, she is eating, they are jumping)
  • working on following directions (put Mom on the bed)

Why We Love it? 

This is a very functional app for building vocabulary with young children in a fun way. Kids love the app because they are able to manipulate different things in all the rooms, including the people. Advanced communicators can use the app to work on action words, pronouns, prepositions and much more. It is also a great tool for getting children to follow directions and can be also be used to teach various routines such as bath time, bed time, dinner time, etc.
