Recommendations for apps to help improve speech? My 3 year old boy has slight speech delay, and we are unable to start speech pathology for a couple of months. I have information sheets and strategies from the pathologist, but I was wondering if anyone could suggest any iPad apps that may assist his speech development? He enjoys the iPad time he gets so I thought it might be another way to help him?! Thanks in advance.
