Brainy Skills Idioms for iOS

By A Brainy Choice $0.99

Developer's Description

Brainy Skills Idioms game is designed to help children and young adults learn how and when to use common linguistic expressions during conversation. The interactive format creates a challenging yet fun atmosphere to learn how to decipher figurative and literal language, and when certain expressions are appropriate to use depending on the situation and context.

This app was created, developed, and written by a certified Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) along with the assistance of a former teacher, with many years of hands on experience in a variety of settings from daycares, schools, and preschools. While working with a large variety of both younger and older school age children, both typically developing as well as special needs children, and seeing the difficulties/struggles with answering a variety of questions, the great need for a unique, motivating, fun and exciting way to help improve these skills was obvious. There is a need to combine learning with fun in order to improve and increase motivation when grasping concepts such as commonly misspelled words. This app can also be used for practicing reading, and overall comprehension skills for middle and high school special needs students and those looking for remedial practice.

Adaptable as needed by parents, teachers, and therapists for a variety of skill levels, the sentences can be read aloud to the student if needed. Students can play on their own or with a caretaker, assistant, or therapist to guide them along and practice basic oral reading skills. First read sentences as they are written, then find the correct option from the multiple choice options, while working your way up the scoreboard for points. Its that easy! Motivate your child to beat their score each time they play and get to the highest score. There are also Brainy Bonuses that at times are tricky to teach and review the core material. The bonuses differ in complexity, and offer an opportunity to earn more points.

Great for:


Reading comprehension

Reading aloud/fluency practice



Social skills

Literal vs figurative language

This app is an excellent teaching tool for a variety of ages of children with Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, developmental delays, remedial review, and all language and speech delays.
