From the Developer

Educator favorite Buddy Bear teaches grammar to children with language delays.

Although the information on the left states that this app is available in all languages, it is only presented in English.

Buddy Bear products have a huge following among speech-language pathologists and early interventionists for the proven techniques they use to improve communication skills in children with autism spectrum disorders. Use Buddy Bear to practice grammar skills and develop joint attention, reciprocity, and early language.

The app has five stories. Each story features one of these grammar forms:
•Present progressive verbs—e.g., kicking, riding, and more
•Regular past tense verbs—e.g., climbed, jumped, and more
•Regular plural nouns—e.g., flowers, candles, and more
•Personal pronouns—e.g., he, she, they
•Negation—e.g., is not

The successful learning format includes:
•simple, predictable language
•uncluttered illustrations
•reassuring audio narration
•open-ended responses
•engaging animation and sound effects

The answer format is multiple-choice with an easy one-tap or click-and-drag response. Correct responses are reinforced with lively animation and sound effects, and an audio narration of the proper grammar form.
