Motivating app to teach Categorization skills

Categories with Spingo is an essential therapy and teaching tool from the authors of the successful Splingo series of Speech and Language Therapy apps.

Developed by experienced Speech & Language Pathologists/ Therapists (SLPs), Categories with Splingo uses bright, colourful images and motivating gameplay to encourage children to learn categorisation skills.

Speech and Language Pathologists frequently target categorisation as a key cognitive-linguistic skill in the development of language and vocabulary acquisition. Being able to successfully categorise supports the development of receptive language, expressive language, vocabulary and links between concepts.

Fun gameplay and reward game

This app is fun, motivating and highly engaging for children of all ages. Multiple categories are available to select from and simple but effective gameplay allows children to focus on sorting of key vocabulary. Select the categories you wish to sort then drag the pictures into the correct categories.

Audio reinforcement helps children to focus, and correct and incorrect responses support learning. The written word can be displayed if required to support reading comprehension. There is also an exciting and motivating Splingo! reward game to really hold children’s attention!
