Research shows that children learn to categorize objects in their environment in order to extend their knowledge and make sense of their experiences (Gelman 1999). Categorization skills also guide children in their rapid acquisition of conceptual and linguistic knowledge (Waxman & Kosowski 1990).
ToonWare Categories for Speech and Language Therapy app is designed and developed by a certified Bilingual Speech Language Pathologist to assist children ages 3 to 7 years increase their communication skills. It helps children in the six areas crucial to literacy development – categorization of everyday objects/animals, phonics, vocabulary, fluency, comprehension and expression. The Categories app has three levels, making it challenging and fun at the same time. Throughout the three different levels the child has to be able to understand the relationship between the pictures shown and find the category to which they belong.
- Level One (Easy), A picture of an item is shown and the child has to identify the category that it belongs to among 5 selections.
- Level Two (Medium), Three pictures are shown and the child has to be able to understand the relationship
between the objects and identify the category to which they belong.
- Level Three (Hard), The child has to find the pictures that belong to the given category.
Parents, speech language pathologist, special educators, and preschool teachers can use the Category app.
