Speech With Milo Nouns App Uses iPad Mirror as Children’s Learning Tool

Teaching kids language skills can be challenging and frustrating for parents, teachers, and speech therapists alike. But the latest entrant to a suite of entertaining and educational speech therapy apps created by Doonan Speech Therapy may hold the key to getting youngsters interested and engaged in learning language.

The Speech With Milo “nouns” app will launch in conjunction with this week's ASHA conference in Atlanta, Georgia, and will become the tenth app in the Speech With Milo platform, joining apps that help kids learn verbs, prepositions, and adjectives, as well as an articulation board game and interactive storybook. The Speech With Milo family of apps has more than 150,000 collective downloads.

The app also supports a first of its kind front-facing camera app, which allows children to see themselves in the “iPad Mirror.” This mirror technology will be utilized on iPads 2, 3, and 4, as well as on the iPad mini. The iPad 1 will feature images and audio only, allowing children to see pictures of Milo with the stated noun, as well as record their own voice. The technology for iPhone 5 is pending.

The Speech With Milo app suite was designed by Poorani Doonan, founder of Speech with Milo and a licensed speech-language pathologist based in San Ramon, California. She created the apps because she found that while children responded to the iPad, there was a real need for basic language building apps.

“As a therapist, the one thing I’ve learned is that kids love to see themselves,” explained Doonan. “A mirror is a great tool in therapy! Now, with this new camera app, children can see themselves as they learn. They are surrounded by the colorful world of Speech with Milo.”

“Specialized apps tend to be extremely expensive and not necessarily friendly to non-professionals,” Doonan added. “We wanted to make an app that any parent could pick up and build basic language skills with their children.”

One speech therapy professional who tested the app shared her impressions of it: “It is a lot easier to get kids to say ‘chicken’ when they look like they are in a chicken suit. You can record a video of children saying each and every word on camera—then play it back with them or share it with friends and parents.”

The app will officially make its debut at the 2012 ASHA Conference in Atlanta on November 15th, giving thousands of speech pathologists the ability to receive an in-depth demo from the Doonan Speech Therapy founders.

About Speech With Milo Nouns App

Developed by speech-language pathologist Poorani Doonan of Doonan Speech Therapy, Speech With Milo “nouns” is an interactive iPad, iPhone, and iTouch app that can help children stay more focused, attentive, and entertained while learning about noun usage and building their language skills. Unlike other speech therapy apps, Speech With Milo “nouns” features an original front-facing camera app, which is the first of its kind. The technology allows children to see themselves in the “iPad Mirror,” facilitating their learning experience. Speech With Milo “nouns” is part of an educational platform of 10 Speech With Milo apps that provide parents, teachers, and speech-language pathologists with engaging, fun, and affordable tools to help children develop basic language building skills.
