This is the app you’ve been waiting for! Listening Power Preschool HD provides nearly 1200 listening practice questions on an iPad! (Lite version is available for single user, with limited content for 99 cents) Designed by Patti Hamaguchi, a licensed speech-language pathologist and developer of the popular Fun with Directions app, it is perfect for children at a language age of 3 ½ through 6. Listening Power Preschool was designed for children with delayed language comprehension, AD/HD, weak listening or auditory processing, autism, and English language learners but ANY child can enjoy these fun activities to strengthen listening!
By turning on the “text on” feature, it can also be used for reading decoding/comprehension as well!
This app should ideally be played with an adult who can teach and cue the child when appropriate during the activities. As with all screen time, app play should be limited. We recommend short sessions of approximately five-ten minutes for most children at this level.
There are 5 activities in the app: Listening for Descriptions: Adjectives such as colors, big/little, happy/sad, clean/dirty, hold/cold, stripes, spots, soft/hard, round, square and more!
Listening for Directions: Concepts such as on, in, out, on, out, up, down, behind, line up, sit down, stop, underline, cross out, underline, and more!
Listening for Grammar & Meaning: plurals, verb tenses, pronouns, preposition concepts, and negation!
Listening for Stories with Pictures: A story is read with accompanying pictures and sound effects, followed by questions about the story such as who, what, and where questions.
Listening for Stories without Pictures: This activity is essentially the same as above, except the child is not shown pictures during the story. The child must stay focused and imagine the story, then answer simple questions about the story. An animation after the story shows some aspect of the story.
Features include: Easy, Intermediate and Advanced levels within each activity. Auto Advance/Drop makes the questions easier or more challenging, depending on your child’s choices; Bubble game included for a fun break; data collection, pop-up reward animations, individual and group play for up to 75 users; text on/off feature available to work on reading decoding and comprehension, options for 2, 3 or 4 choices to be shown.
