At "GeekSLP.com," blogger Barbara Fernandes presents five apps published in the past year—one of them her own—that may be useful in treatment for apraxia.
"Several apps have been published in the last year, which can serve as tools for the intensive motor speech drill shown to be effective in helping children learn consistent sound production. One approach that has been shown to be effective is the initial use of words with less complex syllable structures such as CV [consonant-vowel] and CV to words with multi-syllables ... .
All the apps ... reflect a structure that is in line with this approach. Last year I became very interested in developing a new app for apraxia, which has pushed me to learn and research the subject more than ever."
In a companion podcast, Fernandes provides a demo for each of the five apps.
