From Psyentific Mind:
Here is an exciting variant of the standard tile matching game, which will reinforce your childs learning of speech, images, and writing for 99 common nouns. This fun matching game is played like other matching games except you can control the features and the difficulty of the game in the Settings Screen. The Rewards allow stars to be shown for correct matches. Otherwise, a numeric score is given. The tile layout can be easy, medium, or hard. The easy version shows the actual image or word tile. The medium version layout shows what type of tile but not the actual tile. Finally, the hard tile layout doesnt display the type of tile.You can control the opening number of tile pairs. If your student completes a game, selecting the next level doubles the number of pairs. Otherwise, you can simply select a new game.The tile types allow you to select the types of tiles in the game. You can choose just one type or two or three types.The voice volume allows you to control when the tile should have speech when it is touched. You can turn off the volume for the text, for example, if you want your student to read the words without the aid of hearing them.The Baldi Settings bring up a new set of options.You can control the overall volume of the speech and decide whether you want a male or female avatar. The speaking rate can be controlled and whether the inside of the mouth should be displayed (this is valuable in new language learning). Finally, you can build in different emotions in the avatars.Baldi has been successful in tutoring deaf and hard of hearing children, serving as a language teacher for autistic kids, and instructing children and adults in learning how to speak new languages.Baldi Copyright 2012 Psyentific Mind.
