Funny Directions: App Review & Giveaway

Every year I have quite a few students with goals for following directions. I was really excited when Speecharoo, a new app developer, contacted me to review their new app Funny Directions. 




This app is adorable and so much fun. It targets 1,2,3 step directions, basic vocabulary, attention, and memory. 





When you open the app you are greeted by an adorable kangaroo named Kit who takes you to the home screen. On the home screen you have 4 different scenes (classroom, bedroom, beach, and park) to choose from and each scene has 3 different levels. The scenes are perfect since they are familiar environments for our students. 

Here is a look at the different scenes:





Within each level there are 10 directions that must be completed. After the child completes a direction correctly, they are given reinforcement from that particular character. For incorrect responses, the directions are repeated for the child on the first attempt. If they respond incorrectly on their second attempt, it will provide visual and verbal prompts. Visual directions are provided at the top of the screen. Directions can be repeated as many time as needed within each scene. You can also turn the verbal commands and text off and on by going to settings. The arrow in the bottom right corner allows you to skip to the next direction. The house icon in the top right corner allows you to return to the home screen at any time. The app also collects data which can be emailed at the end of each game. 


Once all 10 of the directions are complete Kit the kangaroo appears with balloons for your student(s) to pop.

This app is a must-have for students working on following directions. 


But before you run go purchase the app, the awesome creators at Speecharoo are giving away one for free! Woohoo!
