Speech Cards {Review}

Hate not finding flash cards that target specific phonemes or concepts? The Speech Cards Pro app offers a solution. Users are able create their own flash cards as well as utilize the preloaded selection (4 decks with 10 images each).

Home screen with 4 preloaded decks containing 10 images each

Tapping on the image allows users to hear the name of the item on the card. Users are able to make their own recording and compare it to the already recorded target.

Users are able to be given no/full/partial credit

Some things I found useful:
  • Users are able to select their own images (24 decks with 20 images per deck)
  • Users are able to create their own recordings
  • Users are able to create their own text to go along with the image
  • Instead of just a "correct" or "incorrect" response, users are able to be given partial credit for their response
  • Accumulated data can be emailed to parents/teachers
  • If you decide to keep student data over a course of sessions, their performance will be summarized with percentages (Session Summary Reports)
You can choose to discard or keep student/session performance

Users are able to make their own deck with their own images.

I would like to see Speech Cards support more than 12 users (for data collection purposes) as I have way more than that on my caseload.
This app would be great to use to create theme related decks (curriculum, holiday, concepts etc.), sound specific card decks for articulation therapy, reading/sight words/literacy, social stories decks, etc. There are a variety of ways to use Speech Cards, how have you or do you plan on using it?

App Compatibility:

Compatible with the iPad. Requires iOS 5.0 or later.

  1. You may want to check out Pocket SLP - it is just a card deck but it has neat features and I haven't run into an issue with how many clients/students can be tracked
