Literacy apps

We partnered with Oxford University Press to develop a set of eight apps featuring Biff, Chip and Kipper - who feature in the readers and phonics resources used in over 80% of schools. This set of home learning apps focusses on key phonics skills - from rhyming to spelling; and has a powerful dictionary app for early writers. We have also designed and developed a set of apps focussing on minimal pair discrimination and semantic awareness, featuring Dubdub the dinosaur!

Dubdub apps

Dubdub, the cute and friendly yellow dinosaur guides children through fun and engaging games.


Odd One Out

Odd One Out is a fun and engaging game for children to work on categorisation/semantic reasoning skills. Working with Dubdub, simply choose the object which doesn't belong from the items presented on the screen. This app helps children work on important skills to understand how words are related to each other, how words have meaning and to think about the differences between the meaning of words. Using vibrant symbols and clear visual and auditory feedback, this app is great for carrying over therapy goals at home.


Minimal Pairs

Minimal Pairs is a fun and engaging application for working on speech sound discrimination and production. The app is designed for children whose speech is still developing, but it can be useful for a number of different people. Minimal pairs exercises are used by people with with dysphasia, dyslexia or dysgraphia; teachers of adult literacy; therapists working with children who have language and literacy needs or those working with people for whom English is a second language. The app can be set up by parents, teachers and speech pathologists and can be used in both listening and practising for speaking modes, using phrase completion tasks.


Sort this out

Sort This Out is a fun and educational game based on sorting items into 2 categories. The aim of the game is to load a train so it can leave the station. The playful animation and sounds are great for pre-school and early primary school children.


Articulation forest

Articulation Forest is designed for children who are struggling with the physical aspects of speaking. This includes but is not limited to issues with sound errors, slow speech and slurred words. It is developed to be used in consultation with a speech therapist.

By playing fun games children can easily see how accurate their speech is. It is the only app available that provides this helpful real-time feedback. It also enables your speech therapist to track progress and adjust targets while your child practices at home.
