This tool is a fun and unique way to get kids struggling with speech to find their voice. When kids are learning to talk, they need to hear environmental sounds and words repeatedly before they'll begin to imitate gestures and sounds. While for some this is a natural part of their development, many children struggle with learning to communicate, and as a result are unable to build their vocabulary to use to get their wants and needs met throughout the day without frustration. Speech Blubs is an excellent tool to expose young kids to vocabulary words and sounds in a fun way that they'll want to use. Kids love to interact with photo filters, and this option alone will have many kids coming back repeatedly for fun. While $99.99 is certainly a significant upfront cost for forever use of the app, during the free trial, parents receive full access to the entire app for the first seven days in order to make an informed decision about purchasing for their family. Also, speech language pathologists may find this to be an invaluable resource when working with children of different ages and skill levels. While Speech Blubs is not a replacement for a speech language pathologist or professional assistance, it provides a substantial amount of learning opportunities for kids who need practice and repetition in order to build confidence and skills for communication.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
