As a parent (and an Apple geek) I’m always on the look out for fun (and free) educational iPhone / iPhone apps. I mean who isn’t!? That’s why I’m excited to giveaway 5 copies of a new learning app that isn’t just fun, but helps your child learn to talk and read as well. Talk about a double win!

The app (Play 2 Learn) was created by a speech therapist who was inspired to create the app while working with one of patients; a little girl who born with Neurofibromatosis-1 (NF1.) (How cool is that!?) I think the fact that this app was created (and is being used) by an actual speech therapist is especially important. It’s nice to know there’s actually research and development behind the app, and that it’s goal is to help your child learn!

Play 2 Learn will help your child learn to read and talk by making learning fun as it integrates technology, colorful images, and fun sounds.f It works on all iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches, and we’ve got 5 copies to give away!

I can’t wait to get this fun app into your hands!

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 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
