Description

This is a video demonstration of our app, "You're the Storyteller: The Surprise," which is already available in the iTunes/app store for the iPad. Check it out! In this beautifully animated, wordless story, the child watches each scene and can then record and/or write their very own narration! Find out more out all our apps at www.hamaguchiapps.com or the Apple itunes/App store: http://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/hamaguchi-apps-for-speech/id460288922 This app is available only on an iPad in a Pro version (up to 30 users, $9.99) or a Home version ($5.99). In this delightful story, a boy brings home a stray dog and attempts to hide it from his mother. Using body language, facial expressions, and carefully selected sound effects, watch the story unfold and find out why it is called "The Surprise!" There are 8 chapters in this story. Each chapter's animation clips runs an average of 15 seconds, allowing the child to describe and retell the story in small increments. The user may replay the entire narrated story from beginning to end via the Table of Contents. You can also watch the original story with or without music accompaniment, email your story including the voice file, or print it out! There are "Challenge Words" provided for each chapter. These are optional and for more advanced language learners who want to try and put them into their narration. The "Questions" bone provides 3 questions for each chapter. Answers and suggestions for both of these are available in the Information page. Aside from being just plain FUN, this app lends itself well to a host of educational and therapeutic possibilities: practice with articulation, fluency, syntax development, social cognitive skills including perspective-taking and body language/facial expression interpretation, and much more!
