Best apps for kids!

When searching for Play 2 Learn on Apple’s Itunes store…be sure to search under iPod apps or iPhone apps (not under iPad apps).  If you have and IPad..you can still download the iPod or iPhone version on your IPad….I had a few people send me FB messages saying that they could not find it…and that was the reason why.

I also wanted to say…when playing with Play 2 Learn…it is also fun to see if your little one can guess what she hears without looking at the screen.  This makes the game more challenging, however, does stimulate lots of language between you and your little one.  Remember the game’s inspiration comes from a young woman I work with, Lauren Cummins.  She is blind in both eyes…and last year when working with her I felt frustrated that there were no apps for her……now even though she can not see the pictures….she LOVES listening to the sounds…and trying to guess what she hears.  Lauren also presents with word retrieval concerns….so playing this game also addresses her ability to retrieve words and to define words.

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
