SpeakColorsHD is a speech therapy app designed to help teach young children improve their communication skills using colors and photos of objects. The app focuses on simple phrases or sentences using an adjective (color) and noun. For example, "red apple", "The car is blue". When a color or object is pressed, the app speaks the word. A record button allows the child to practice speaking the words himself. This app is geared toward toddlers with speech and language delays, autism, Down syndrome and other developmental disorders.

May is Better Hearing and Speech Month (http://www.asha.org/bhsm/). For this event, SpeakColorsHD 1.2 is on sale for $0.99 USD (or equivalent in your country) until version 2.0 is released.

SpeakColorsHD 1.2 is available for the iPad in the App Store:

The upcoming SpeakColorsHD version 2.0 is planned for release next week. We have made a lot of improvements, including the voice, more types of sentences and the ability to import your own photos. For a preview of SpeakColorsHD 2.0, please see our videos on YouTube:
