As noted by therapists who have piloted it, you can’t go wrong with Real Vocabulary, the latest speech therapy app released by Virtual Speech Center, Inc. Developed by Jennifer Rogers, M.A., CCC-SLP, Real Vocabulary made its debut in February. It’s available for download on the App Store for $29.99.

The app provides a comprehensive and flexible language program for students from kindergarten through fifth grade, targeting the Common Core Standards for vocabulary acquisition and use. It includes more than 1,500 pictures and 5,000 pre-recorded audio clips. In its Pro version and ALL words in app program, it allows users to add their own words, pictures and audio recordings.

“This app has so much to offer!” according to specialists from The Speech Bubble. “With the ability to customize and control settings and words for students, targets for key vocabulary areas, fun games and awesome data collection, you can’t go wrong.”

Fun and Learning

Built around a fun retro restaurant theme, Real Vocabulary motivates students to practice via a built-in reward system. They accumulate starts for each correct response to vocabulary questions and when they have enough, they can play one of three games: Wobbly Waiter, Sling Challenge or Catch the Dish.

A total of 300 receptive and expressive tasks are offered in each of the following categories:

  • Antonyms
  • Synonyms
  • Definitions
  • Multiple meanings
  • Idioms

While performing receptive tasks, students are shown pictures with word stimuli. They then match one of four words with the pictures. In expressive tasks, students state their responses verbally.

Useful Tools for Users

Real Vocabulary is easy to navigate and provides users with the tools to:

  • Enter multiple students.
  • Change settings.
  • Store selected targets for the next session.
  • Enable and disable written descriptions and special effect sounds.
  • Track correct and incorrect responses.
