PocketSLP Minimal Pairs, a new app that I helped to develop, just became available on the App Store. It already has a 5-star review, so it must be good.
“Minimal pairs” is a type of speech therapy that helps with phonological processes. If you don’t know what that is, then you probably don’t need this app. But at half the price of traditional card decks, it’s a no-brainer for speech therapists.
At heart, this is a flashcards app. For each pair of words, students have to guess the correct word (in “receptive” mode) or say the correct word (in “expressive” mode). The app has a clever algorithm that encourages students to repeat the words they already know often, which in turn will help them improve the words they don’t know well yet.
The app keeps extensive track of the session results and lets therapists create different types of reports (spreadsheet, report card, or color-coded line graph). These reports can be emailed from within the app and, on OS 4.2 or newer, you can even print the reports directly from the app.
