{App Review + Giveaway} Boo Articulation Helper

.

{App Review + Giveaway} Boo Articulation Helper is a fun new addition to my collection of apps geared towards early speech skills! The Boo character is cute & fun to imitate as he models consonants, vowels or CV combinations. The recent update added the option for American English so the vowels are now appropriate for my patients. I have three iOS app codes to giveaway so keep reading…. giveaway details are at the end of this post 😃.

More about the app: Boo is designed to entice spontaneous repetition of individual speech sounds and simple syllables. At the same time, he phonological awareness, by showing what actions happen in the mouth during articulation.

In the app, you put one or two sound cards in corresponding fields, building a sound or a simple consonant-vowel syllable. Then, Boo articulates the sound or syllable, clearly showing mouth and tongue movements during articulation. This may be enticing for the child to imitate and recognize how the sound syllables are made by tongue and lips. You can record and playback your own sound production for comparison. You can also make Boo go slow, repeat successively, or articulate sound noiselessly. Behind a parental lock you can disable or enable sounds as well as read instructions and tips.

Includes consonants P B T D K G S Z SH CH F V M N L W and vowels EE AH OO as well as British English AW ER and American English EH ER. The very first time you start the app you get to choose between British and American English — after that you can switch between dialects in the settings.
