Speech with Milo: Sequencing uses the same fun, playful mouse named Milo to engage children in learning valuable speech development techniques. This time Milo shows kids how to put actions into a sequence, which will ultimately help your child develop their own ability to construct language.
In the app, Milo meets with more adorable animal friends to perform a series of 35 different activities. Each activity is broken into three smaller actions that make up a beginning, middle and an end. Your child plays the game by arranging the pictures of each smaller action into the correct sequence to complete the activity. For example, Milo and his raccoon friend decide to bake a cake. Your child sees images of the two animals mixing the cake, pouring the batter, and putting the cake in the oven and moves each image until they are in the correct sequence to make a cake.
After your child has successfully ordered the series of images, the pictures of the cute animals come to life in a short animation featuring Milo and his friends actually performing the newly-activity from start to finish. The app also offers hints and verbal rewards along the way to encourage your child in the learning process.
All of the apps in the Speech with Milo family are highly regarded and widely used by Speech-Language Pathologists and Speech with Milo: Sequencing is no exception. Reviews on iTunes show that many speech therapists in elementary schools find the app a valuable resource for both their typically developed and special needs students. Parents of younger children also love the app because the energetic, lovable mouse Milo holds their children’s attention while offering an educational, informative experience.
In addition to praise from professional speech therapists and parents alike, Speech with Milo: Sequencing has garnered industry recognition as well. The app was selected by Babble.com as the 2nd Best Educational App for Kids, and ranked #8 on their list of Top 50 Apps for Kids.
The app combines vital speech therapy techniques with a fun and engaging interface to help your child develop crucial language development skills including time concepts, storytelling, and developing longer and more complex versions of their own sentences. In order to maximize these great benefits, Speech with Milo: Sequencing comes with a set of instructions written by a speech therapist to help parents guide their children’s Milo experience.
Milo and his friends continue to be a hit with young children of all ages, while the educational benefits of the app make it a go-to app for both speech therapists and parents. Speech with Milo: Sequencing is available for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Check out this dynamic learning tool for all the young ones in your family and watch as their language skills blossom with Milo and Co.
