5 Star review from AppyMall
The reviewers said if they could give it a 10 out of 5 they would have :)
Thank you for making products for our field that make a difference!! Hearing lots of language & seeing lots of smiles while my pediatric clients use the Comprehension Builder app. Such an honor to share this app in our February subscription boxes & with our THS family. Please, share how you use Comprehension Builder in your sessions.
I would recommend Comprehension Builder to any teacher, therapist, or parent working on “WH” questions with children. I highly recommend this app for young children, and specifically for those with special needs.
Comprehension Builder is a unique educational app that teaches construction of simple sentences in color-coded parts, with subject, verb, object and preposition components while asking “Wh” questions – (Who? What? Where?) to build comprehension. This bottom-up approach is presented in five different sections of sentences types, from simple to complex sentence forms, all presented in present tense. Three levels are also included:
Level 1 – color-coded sentence parts with color-coded matching areas to drag sentence parts in making sentences.
Level 2 - color-coded sentence parts without the color-coding to match for sentence building.
Level 3 – Each word is presented separately, without color-coding, for the highest level of difficulty in constructing a sentence.
This application is appropriate for multiple populations, from children to adults, regular education and special education, with disorders such as autism as well. Parents, educators, and speech pathologists will love the simplicity and teaching tools within this app, while users will enjoy the picture content and reward screen after number of correct responses.
For regular education learning, young children are beginning to form simple sentences and to learn how words in a sentence need to be organized. For special education, basic language skills are very difficult and must be taught in a structured way. Interpretation of questions is an area of difficulty that is addressed in this app, explicitly teaching the components of Who? What doing? What? and Where?
