This inaugural app has been designed for children with expressive language delays, more specifically word retrieval difficulties. The app which can be used on both smartphones and tablets, uses games to encourage the development of specific strategies in children who find it difficult to access the wide range of vocabulary they have stored in their little heads. This language development difficulty can impact on fluency, confidence and academic skills, but Let’s Expand ….Vocabulary is here to help!
