Char Boshart MA,CCC-SLP has been kind enough to review my new app Junganew: A Herd of Sounds. Junganew is the first story based series app that creates an experience for the child to learn their sounds. I am honored to have received such wonderful words. The app is NOW AVAILABLE in the APP STORE for iPads only for the low price of $4.99.

The new speech-language therapy app, Junganew, a Herd of Sounds (for “S”), is a veritable visual and auditory wonderland.
You are transported into a fanciful and imaginative kids-world where frogs and butterflies talk and inspire participation. You are invited to go on a journey with Theo and friends. Along the way you’ll not only practice your s-sound in all positions of words via play-back mirror/video and audio, you’ll play auditory discrim tasks at the seashore, work on your final /s/ while learning rhyming words at the Fun House, practice saying your /z/ accompanied by the Vocal Chords Band, and mix-up your sound-blending on the magical Blender Express Train. And those are but a few of the venues!
It’s /s/ instruction and practice. It’s language-building. It’s story and sequence, applied at your own pace. It’s following directions, auditory memory tasks, and it’s cute as heck! Also, I’d say it’s primarily for younger kids up to and through early elementary age. The sound effects alone will blow you away. Have fun—one and all—with this very creative and beneficial app.
