Best apps for kids!

Friday brings very exciting news…..I am so excited to say that the app I developed with my good friend Melissa will be available on Apple’s itunes store in about five days!!! First I would like to thank my good friend Catherine Morena‘s father Jay Morena for the amazing pictures and sounds he developed for us. Jay is incredibly talented and was sure that every detail was just perfect! So than…k you Jay.

Play 2 Learn-What Sound? Addresses your little one’s ability to discriminate one sound from another. With 9 pictures on each board..your little one presses the play button and then has to match the corresponding picture..simple and fun.

Some of the sounds are similiar..and some you really need to listen to…why…that is because the app is teaching your little one to be a “careful listener”…to learn to discriminate the subtle sounds she hears….just as she needs to do when listening to language…and hearing the subtle differences in speech production. So be sure to look for Play 2 Learn-What Sound? in the next week on the Apple iTunes store! With many more apps to follow.

 

About Kim

My name is Kim Marino and I have been practicing as a licensed speech and language pathologist since 1993. I work on Long Island providing diagnostic evaluations and services to children from birth to age 21. My experience is vast and am proud to say that I work with children that may present with articulation and phonological concerns, oral motor feeding concerns, Down Syndrome feeding, cognitive rehabilitation, auditory processing delays, receptive language delays, cleft palate feeding and sound development and expressive language delays. Most importantly, I am the mother of four amazing children and am happily married to my childhood sweetheart. I feel blessed to have my four children and so lucky to share this journey in life with my husband. I always had it somewhere in my head that I wanted to develop a blog or a website of some sort so that I could provide families with an additional resource....so that parents could help their little ones become a better communicator. And as I was developing this blog....I realized that I also needed to share the stories about my life and my children....and the funny things along the way that help to keep me smiling. Whether you are a working mother or not...finding balance between home, children and life can be a challenge....I hope that my blog helps to bring a smile to your face..and also some tools to help you help your little or big one. I hope you enjoy! Kim
