* SpeechStickers by Seriously Sticky LLC, $14.99, https://appsto.re/us/9aM_z.i (although the app is designed to target production of specific vowels or early developing consonants, I’ve also used it to reinforce any vocalization.

* Talking Carl & Gugl by Tayasui, $2.99, https://appsto.re/us/Cj36z.i (for a great deal, take a look at the bundle of 5 apps for $3.99 or you may be able to “complete my bundle” for less if you already purchased one of the apps)

UPDATE: Added these two on 2/2/17

  • Talking Shamrock – St. Patrick’s Day Talking 4 Leaf Clover by Emoticon LLC, https://appsto.re/us/U8h4W.i
  • Talking Valentine by Emoticon LLC, https://appsto.re/us/z7x9V.i
    (rare exceptions of apps with ads that I recommend. These are fun to pair with that holiday theme. Turn off the ads by using your iPad in “airplane” mode and block access to the button leading to the App Store via Guided Access)
