Designed to build short-term and working memory--the number of pieces of information your brain can take in and use.

Cognition Coach teaches the child the names of objects, animals, and instruments, as well as number and letter identification. It then targets different levels of processing, moving from a beginner’s level of one piece of information all the way up to six, which represents strong short-term and working memory.

Working memory is being called the “New IQ.” Decades of clinical experience has shown that processing helps drive the development of language, social interaction, behavior, and cognition, and establishes the foundation for academic success.

Not only is it never too early to start building these skills, you don’t want to discover that you may be too late to provide your child with the foundation they need for early success in school.

Features
- Made specifically with fun and vibrant illustrations for children who are neuro-developmentally functioning between approximately three to five years of age or higher.
- Choose from 6 levels of increasing difficulty.
- Choose from 10 categories such as animals, around the house, musical instruments, numbers, letters and colors.
- Track progress for each child as they progress through all 6 levels.
- Repeat a level until mastered.
- Encouraging reward sounds and animations.
- Includes helpful hints and tips for each level and specific instructions on how to use.

What SLPs have to say...

"“It held my preschooler’s interest for about 10 minutes. She exhibits final consonant deletion (sic) and she willingly imitated the words. She enjoyed tapping the picture, imitating the word and swiping. Overall, it is a valuable tool for the Speech Toolbox and highly recommended.”
- Ricki Block, MS, CCC-SLP. Speech Pathologist since 1976 and certified member of the ASLHA.

“The syllables are arranged in a hierarchical order, which is hugely important. Parents can use this app to practice at home what was taught in therapy."
- Tatyana Elleseff, MA CCC-SLP at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey

“NACD Home Speech Therapist offers a wonderful opportunity for organized and leveled speech production practice.”
- Jackie Bryla is a school-based SLPA in California.

Developed by the National Association for Child Development team, including a certified speech-language pathologist, the Apraxia app provides choices of different phonemes to target and moves through a progression of levels that challenge motor planning for speech. 

Working at the syllable level, it begins at the production of single syllables and progresses through increasingly difficult production sequences all the way to the production of sequences of random syllables.

** FEATURES **

• Choose from 8 different consonant groups (for a total of 19 consonant sounds) to target.
• For each group, choose from 8 levels to practice
• Detailed instructions explain how to choose an appropriate consonant group and practice level.

* NEW PROGRESS TRACKING OPTION REQUIRES IN APP PURCHASE. PROGRESS TRACKING IS NOT INCLUDED WITH BUNDLE OR INDIVIDUAL APP, IT HAS TO BE PURCHASED SEPARATELY*
• Track and save the progress for each user so that you can resume each consonant group and level from where you left off. Great for SLPs who wants to use this for multiple users.
• Sharing your progress via email directly from the app allows for communication between therapist and parent. For parents, practice at home and email your progress to therapist.
