Product Description: 

Picture the Sentence is an early language development iPad app for children with special needs designed to practice language and auditory processing tasks at the basic sentence level.

Main Features: 

  • Designed for language and auditory processing, visualizing.
  • It offers three different levels of difficulty so the child can learn how to attend to important elements of a sentence and “picture it,” attaching meaning to the words and eventually forming mental pictures without visual support.
  • It is designed for anyone who is trying to learn and understand the English language.
  • Turn the voice commands off and the text feature on to use the game as a way to practice basic reading comprehension skills.
  • Includes the “Pick-a-Door” game, which can be selected at varying intervals so the user can take a break. The user opens each door until an animal comes out and says, "You found me!"
  • Choice of color drawing icons or stick figures.
  • Levels include Easy (slow, with visual support staying on the screen), Intermediate (faster rate with pauses, with visual support flashing briefly on the screen), and Advanced (no pausing or visual support).
  • Text on/Text off.
  • Choice of subjects: Pronouns (He/she/they) or nouns (boy/girl/children).
  • Sandtimer (This delays the presentation of the picture choices so there is a greater challenge to the child’s working memory.) It is enabled in the "default" mode but can be turned off.
  • Sentence Types: Subject + verb, subject + verb + object, subject + verb + prepositional phrase, subject + verb + object + prepositional phrase.
  • Progress/Data tracker that allows users to collect and save data, email it or print it.
  • Developmental ages 4-6.

Primary Specifications: 

  • Requires iOS 8.0 or later.
  • Compatible with iPad.
