Burbank, CA, May 15, 2012 – Virtual Speech Center Inc., the provider of mobile applications for speech therapy, announced today the release of Multiple Meanings Library, an IPad application available for download on Apple’s ITunes App store.
The Multiple Meanings Library was created by a certified speech and language pathologist for students ages 5–15 who struggle with oral and written comprehension of words with multiple meanings.
Having knowledge of multiple meanings is critical for both oral and written communication and a successful education. Children are exposed to words that have multiple meanings on a daily basis at school and social settings. Students are expected to access their lexical dictionaries quickly enough to accurately respond to a teacher’s directions or questions; however, sometimes the teacher’s directions or explanations may contain words that have more than one meaning, making it very difficult for children with limited vocabulary knowledge to understand.
The Multiple Meanings Library can be used for students with:
- Receptive/expressive language disorders
- Word-finding problems
- Learning disorders
- Specific language -learning disorders, etc.
The Multiple Meanings Library allows students to practice multiple meanings in the following five different types of activities:
- Auditory bombardment
- Picture identification
- Make up sentences (with audio recording feature)
The Multiple Meanings Library is easy to navigate and allows users to employ several tools, enabling them to perform the following tasks:
- Enter multiple students
- Change settings
- Select multiple words
- Select multiple activity types
- Select auto-scoring
- Select alternate counts for multiple students
- Enable or disable written instruction
- Enable or disable feedback sounds
- Use audio recording feature when playing “Make up sentences”
- Track correct and incorrect responses
- E-mail results at the end of the game
