Love it & List it: Language Apps {LINKY PARTY}

Jenna, over at Speech Room News, is hosting her monthly linky party. This month SLPs are linking up to talk about their favorite language apps.

I've linked up and listed a few of my favorite language apps below. There were so many great ones to choose from - but these seem to be the ones I use the most.
1. Sentence Maker (by Grasshopper Apps) - There is a free version and a pro version. I happen to have the pro version, and I use it all the time! This app helps my students with limited verbal abilities expand their sentences, while using a mixture of sentence types. It also helps my students working on sentence structure generate complete sentences with correct word forms. The app offers a variety of settings (with pictures, without pictures, with verbal cues, without verbal cues, with written cues, etc...). I've included a few screenshots below.

2. One Step Two Step Following Directions (by Synapse Apps, LLC) - There is a lite version (FREE) and a professional version. Again, I purchased the pro version, and it's one of my go to apps for students working on one and two step directions. Again, I've included a few screenshots below.

3. Autism iHelp Wh-Questions (by John Talavera) - This is a free app, however you have the capability of purchasing more question choices within the app. I love this app for my students who are working on responding to basic wh-questions. The pictures are clear and simple, and the app provides a nice variety of questions. I've included some screen shots below.

Thanks for checking out some of my favorite apps! Click here and head back over to Speech Room News and find out what other SLPs are saying!


  1. Oh I need to check out, One Step, Two Step! Looks great! Thanks for linking up!

  2. I downloaded the free iHelp, but was a bit bummed that more questions required purchases! I agree with Jenna...One Step Two Step looks good!

    1. I think I must have downloaded it when it first came out. Most of my questions are filled in, I haven't purchased any yet...and I use it quite a bit. I do LOVE my One Step Two Step's a fun one for my little ones.
