Everyday vocabulary for developmentally younger children

Early Words with Splingo is an innovative app designed to teach everyday vocabulary to developmentally younger children

Early Words with Splingo was inspired by one of the young people that we work with in our clinical practice. Samuel was playing our original app – Splingo’s Language Universe – and, although Samuel loved the reward game, his cognitive ability and language comprehension levels meant he found the vocabulary and language structures too complex.

It struck us that we needed an app that contained very common everyday vocabulary and directions that were developmentally appropriate for younger children and those with more significant developmental needs. We also knew the app had to have a reward game with immediate feedback to keep children motivated.

We spoke to other SLTs/SLPs who agreed that there was a gap for such an app and so Early words with Splingo was born!

Fully customisable for therapy or teaching

Like all our other apps, Early Words with Splingo is fully customisable, enabling you to select specific vocabulary to target in therapy and teaching. The app also has the option to select between US voice and UK voice and also has a Voice Record function that encourages children to practice using their own expressive language.

“The children all love Splingo…especially the encouraging words (yep,yep,yep, ooh whoo etc!)
and the rocket! The pace is great for speech/language delayed children.”
