A little while ago I reviewed “Speech Therapy for Apraxia-WORDS” by Blue Whale Apps. You can Find this post HERE. Similarly to Speech Therapy for Apraxia, the Words version is designed for working on motor planning with children and adults presenting with developmental or acquired apraxia of speech. However, this app focuses on the child producing monosyllabic words vs. individual syllables.
There are 9 different word groups to chose from and the words are categorized according to place of articulation of the phonemes and pattern of articulation within the word. Similar to the Speech Therapy for Apraxia app, the goal of WORDS is to gradually increase the levels of difficulty to improve motor planning for speech.
To recap from the previous post what I like about this app:
- The word groups are arranged in a hierarchical order of complexitywhich is hugely important.
- Great for drills of CVC monosyllabic words with very involved children.
- Great for introducing new words into the child’s repertoire.
- Pictures are provided (great for teaching vocabulary)
- Audio models are provided, which is great for all clients but particularly for very young children.
- This app is perfect for drills so you can use it in the initial stages of working with children with a variety of speech sound deficits including articulation and phonological disorders.
- Parents can use this app to practice at home what was taught in therapy.
Please note that the app works on iPad, Android devices and the Nook
The app developer was kind enough to provide me with 3 copies of this app AGAIN to give away to a few lucky contestants so enter my Rafflecopter giveaway for a chance to check out this awesome app for yourself for free.

I have several students who are working on multisyllabic this app seems like it’d be great for them!
I have three students right now with Apraxia. This app would be a great tool to use with them!
I have several students with Apraxia and would love to use this with them!
This looks great 🙂 I love that it is arranged in order of complexity, perfect for drills and parents can be involved!
Always looking for a good apraxia program. This looks very organized.
This looks like a great program.
Would love to use this with several of the student that I work with. The school I work at has very limited materials (especially apraxia materials). This looks like a great app.
This app looks fun and I could use it for kiddos I suspect have Apraxia or artriculation issues or even phonological awareness deficits. I’m pretty sure I could adapt this app to my needs! I don’t have an iPad (only android tablet) but I know this app has an android version as well. If your giveaway is only iPad apps, then please disregard my entry! Sorry for the confusion. I tried to figure out if it was only iPad version and I see one of the entries is to like an iPad page so I am assuming it’s all iPad compatable but thought I’d enter just in case! 🙂 Thanks
No problem 🙂

Looks like a great program for my population… hearing impaired children… many of the kiddos on my caseload have apraxia in addition to deafness being their primary disability. they are extremely motivated by iPad since technology is a huge part of their world.
It looks like an excellent app.
I have two students this year who have motor planning difficulties. They are highly motivated by the iPad so this app sound perfect for them!
This looks like an app that that could be beneficial for children I work with.
This looks like a great app. I have several students with severe intelligibility problems, and this would give me another tool for practicing!
This app looks fantastic! I am working with a young girl with apraxia and have been looking for a great app that is compatible with an android device.
