Free and Affordable Articulation Apps – Interactive Infographic
I’ve seen a dramatic increase in the number of folks looking for apps in the midst of the pandemic with services often being provided via distance learning / teletherapy. So much so that I’ve decided to go through the process of writing an updated blog post of apps for SLPs listed by goal areas (https://omazingkidsllc.com/2016/12/31/the-ipad-the-slp-in-2017-app-list-for-slps-sorted-by-goal-area/). That will take quite a while to complete due to the number of apps, verifying availability, removing those no longer available and adding new ones.
Since one of the most frequent requests is from SLPs asking for free and affordable articulation apps (either for themselves or to recommend to families for carryover), I am posting this section first. Think of this as a preview of a much larger post. The more expensive robust full-featured articulation apps will all be included in that larger post as well as a separate post with a review/comparison of my top 5 faves… so be watching for that.
Today’s post is just focused on free and affordable articulation apps (priced $9.99 or less). This is a curated list that only includes iOS apps that I have personally used and view as being helpful in therapy or to parents of kids with special needs.
If an app is also available for Android or Amazon Kindle Fire, I have also included those links since I frequently see posts asking for apps on those platforms. Just be aware that I do not own any Android devices so I can’t comment on how well they work on those platforms or whether or not they have the same features as the iOS version.

- This PDF is meant to be an “interactive infographic” and is not formatted to be printable.
- Due to the number of links in this PDF and it being on one long page, it is best viewed within the iBooks (also known as Books) app on your iPad or iPhone where you can zoom in, scroll and tap on links to head directly to those apps. It should work in the same way on Google PDF Viewer for those wanting to view it on an Android tablet or phone.
- The links provided are directly from those app stores and will be the quickest way to find the apps (links are provided to be helpful… these are NOT affiliate links). For those who want to search themselves, it’s best to do that from an iPad since iPad-only apps will not show up when searching the App Store from your iPhone.
How To Mirror Your iPad for Teletherapy:
Want to suggest free and affordable iOS articulation apps to be added to this post? The best way to reach me is via Facebook messaging over on my OMazing Kids page.
If it’s a free app, please send the link from the USA App Store so I can download and try it out. If it’s a reasonably priced paid app ($9.99 or less) and you are the app developer, please send the link from the USA App Store so I can look at the info before you send a promo code. I want to make sure that one of my iPads or iPhone is compatible in order to try it out.
It took quite a bit of time to compile this list so please mention OMazing Kids when sharing it on social media and do not copy/paste it onto other blogs or documents or upload the post or PDF to servers. I have it available here on my blog and plan on keeping my blog up for the foreseeable future.
