This inaugural app has been designed for children with expressive language delays, more specifically word retrieval difficulties. The app which can be used on both smartphones and tablets, uses games to encourage the development of specific strategies in children who find it difficult to access the wide range of vocabulary they have stored in their little heads. This language development difficulty can impact on fluency, confidence and academic skills, but Let’s Expand ….Vocabulary is here to help!
We have a wide range of features to offer you
The Music can be switched onto mute and Finn the Bird explains all the games.
Your child will be rewarded with a fun game after 5 answers are gained.
You can choose between: American, Northern Irish, British or the Voice of a Child
Intelligent Technology makes it easy for children to have accessible strategies at their fingertips, and in the forefront of their minds , to retrieve a word they get stuck with
With Let's Expand...vocabulary parents will be able to control the activities by difficulty and add downloadable packs as their child progresses. Through this you the parents are able to feel engaged in your child's development as well as being able to monitor the progress being made.
There is a choice of 4 key activities produced to assist word retrieval abilities:
- Odd One Out
- Matching Pairs
- Add Another One
10 Main Categories
- Animals (Farm v Zoo; No Legs v 2 Legs v 4 Legs)
- Body Parts (Upper Body v Lower Body; Head v Body v Legs)
- Clothing (Day v Night; Summer v Winter)
- Colours (Dark v Light; Primary v Non Primary)
- Food (Fruit v Vegetable; Breakfast v Lunch v Dinner v Snack)

second sub-category per main category at the hardest level.

I would highly recommend the purchase of this app, it’s so appealing to children of all ages and abilities! My 4 year old child loves this app, it engages her with bright pictures, music and colourful graphics! I also use this app in the classroom with children who experience language and communication difficulties. They are fully engaged and respond positively to the activities. Love that you can also adjust the levels on this app to suit all abilities! Excellent resource worth the money!
I bought this app for my five year old as a fun eductional game and it certainly meets that criteria! He absolutely loved it and I watched him really thinking through his word choices - it got his brain working! The educational games (odd one out, matching pairs with a twist, catergorisation, another one) have really helped him build stronger word knowledge. There are so many practise opportunities which ensures that it delivers on expanding vocabulary! I loved how easy to use this app was and that we will be able to adapt the difficulty level as his vocabulary expands. The characters are adorable and the reward games are very motivating for children! I am delighted with my purchase - excellent value for money too!
What a great app! As a Speech and Language Therapist who works abroad a lot, physical resources are often not practical to take with me and so I often use iPad apps in my sessions; however I've found that so many of the speech therapy apps on the market are poorly designed and don't properly target the skills they claim to. Let's Expand is quite different though; well thought-out, engaging for kids, and properly addresses vocabulary development. It's customisable too so you can alter the difficulty based on the level you're working at. Great stuff, highly recommended, and my kiddos who've used it so far love it!

The Let's Expand Communication App is a great tool for targeting vocabulary. The categories and vocabulary used range from easy to hard, and you can change the difficulty level if needed for each section. While only the Northern Ireland English version is currently available, Ruth does plan to add both UK English and American English soon. Northern Ireland English is a bit different from American English, but the difference is minimal and can be worked around. I especially like the "reward games" offered after each vocabulary task.
Our Team are working hard on creating a video presentation to outline Let's Expand
