SpeechPrompts™ provides speech therapy exercises to help those with autism practice rate, rhythm, stress and loudness of speech (prosody). The U.S. Department of Education’s IES SBIR program funds research and development of SpeechPrompts, a collaborative project with the Yale Child Study Center.

SpeechPrompts is a new app from HandHold Adaptive®, makers of iPrompts®, StoryMaker™ and other leading tools serving those with special needs and their caregivers. It is designed for use with individuals exhibiting abnormal prosody, such as those with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs), Down syndrome and stroke victims. Prosody refers to the musical aspects of speech, including rate, rhythm, volume, phrasing and intonation.

Pippa Davies @PippaDavies ‘s insight:

The price of this app is $19.99 but you can get group discounts.  This looks like a useful tool for students with Autism spectrum disorders.
