Works well with some of my autistic clients also. They love taking pictures with the goggles, etc on their face and love the reinforcers that pop up! Great job!” ***** “It's such a simple concept, yet my child absolutely loves it. He loves imitating the other children which surprises me with his developmental delay. Very cool app. It's worth the purchase.” ***** He loves to see the “reward” clips at the end of each lesson. That alone keeps him working. ***** My clients LOVE this app! I started using this with my clients that are not imitating or interested in clinician directed activities. ***** My son loves using this app. I could never get him to make these sounds or move his mouth. ***** "Thank you for this wonderful app, we haven’t found a more fitting one for our Daniel (Down syndrome). Speech Therapist had introduced us to it, and our little Daniel is working with it very well. He wants to use it every day. He is mimicking the sounds all day long, even before bed, he repeats everything that he saw and heard in that day." - @Mihaela

    I really wasn't planning on purchasing the app especially when I saw it's a monthly fee. However I tried the free sample with my two-year-old daughter with a speech delay and after seeing how she kept imitating the fish sounds and doing the tongue movement exercises on her own after only ONE TIME of playing with the application, I was convinced... this app makes it so much fun for them to work on functional speech goals it's really the most effective, funnest and simplest thing you can do for your children to promote speech production. Great job app developers!!

    It seems like the developers worked hard on this app, but I am an SLP and this app doesn't seem to follow any therapy practices that I have seen, used, or studied. The reward system is great and the app would help with imitation, but I'm unsure how this would truly help with a language delay, articulation delay, phonological process errors, etc. The first words do not follow researched based core vocabulary that is functional, there are no way to choose specific sounds for error remediation, and so on. I see reviews where parents are saying that this is cheaper than therapy, but I would use this app on your own with caution. I would consult a licensed SLP first, which the app does say to do. I wouldn't say the practices are harmful, but I'm not sure how helpful they are, especially for the price.

    My son is only 14 months and he can follow along with a few of the practices, I can't wait to see how better he gets as he ages.

    As an SLP I love, love, love the new content (I'm a former Blubs Blubs user). The only thing I would change is to make it a fair, competitive one time purchase rather than a subscription! That would make it a 5-star app in my book.

    My child loves this app! We have bought the monthly subscription but yesterday when I will let you open it it asked if I wanted to purchase the subscription which I already have done. I clicked restore purchases and entered in my password and I was informed that it did not recognize my account and that I didn't have any purchases when it had just taken out the $9.99 out of my account a week ago

    I just became a member. I am a Speech-Language Pathologist. Everything on this site I do in therapy. What is nice are the examples and feedback from the stickers. Not sure how you can set up groups.
  • Poor service

    There's no way to test out the app without subscribing. Well you get a "free trial". After a few days I realized it's not the app for us and spent the remainder of our trial attempting to unsubscribe from being charged for the product. There's no option to unsubscribe from a free trial, you have to be charged first. Developer blames Apple, apple blames developer, meanwhile I'm trying to prevent my account from being charged $10. Use at your own risk. Still unresolved.

    This is a good supplement to my daughter's weekly speech therapy. It helps her practice her sounds. Her development is coming along quite nicely.
