Speech Builder lets speech and language professionals, assistants, teachers, parents and children create and work with therapy worksheets, cards, stickers, activities and games.
Speech Builder has been designed both as an accessible tool for the therapist and a means to engage children in the creation of materials and help them focus on therapy.
Speech Builder includes the complete library of 700 images from NDP3. It also includes a full set of 43 Jolly Phonics phoneme illustrations. We plan to add further resources as they are developed.
Speech Builder was created to support the strategies and therapy techniques of NDP3 in dealing with severe speech disorders, but can equally be used at other levels to provide independent planned and ad-hoc treatment all the way through to connected speech.
The software includes the complete set of NDP3 sequencing, transition, grid and cards templates. And the entire database of images, for example, can be searched by title, key sounds, phonetics and word or phrase type, so it’s easy find exactly the right words and images.
Images and templates can be coloured in on the screen using a very simple paintbrush – just click a colour and click the image. Images can be freely moved around, enlarged, shrunk, distorted, rotated and duplicated.
