Make speech therapy fun with Fonemixo Pro. "I really liked that the app is easy to setup and understand. I think this is a nice alternative to the standard speech practice sheets that are often sent home." Amanda Blackburn, reviewer on the website iHeartThisApp. Said about Fonemo (predecessor of Fonemixo).
Fonemixo Pro is a tool to help children who need to practice speech sounds. Saying the words out loud is part of the game. With the help of a microphone you can record the child's pronunciation.
Practice speech sounds with memory and free play. The cards in Fonemixo Pro depict words containing different speech sounds, for example sun, sandal and stone. The app has two games. One is a classic game of memory where you pair cards while saying the words out loud. In the other came you can play freely with the cards an create your own stories or make up funny words.
Fonemixo can be used by children from the age of three years and older. There are three levels of difficulty which makes Fonemixo challenging for older children. Fonemixo is easy to learn. The child does not have to be literate since the game is based on images.
- Record and listen -
With the help of a microphone you can record the child's pronunciation and together you can listen to how it sounds. The recorded sound will play automatically, but you can also press the speaker if you want to listen to it again.
- The speech sounds -
You can practice with different speech sounds, one sound at a time or multiple sounds. You can also choose the position of the speech sound in the word, in the beginning, in the middle, the end or mixed. All speech sounds do not have all positions. On the easy level the speech sound is adjacent to vowels.
Speech sounds in the game: f, g, k, l, r, s
- Memory -
In the game of memory you can play as a single player or as two players sitting next to each other or opposite. Saying words out loud is part of the game. Whenever you wonder how a word is pronounced the teddy bear will help you. Poke the teddy in the belly and teddy will tell you what’s on the card. You can also turn on a setting to hear the word each time a card is turned. Do you want to see something funny? Poke the teddy in the belly before you turn the first card.
- Play as you like and create stories -
In the second game you can move the cards as you like. With the help of the images you can make up a story with words beginning with an s or create funny words like "goat helmet". You will get different number of cards depending on the difficulty level. If you want new cards press refresh. In some cases the selection of cards is limited, for instance if you play with only one speech sound on the easy level. Then you might not get new cards.
