Working on Auditory Processing/Following directions as a part of your IEP? This is the app for you.

Fun with Directions is a ground-breaking app, designed to provide a fun and engaging way to practice listening, following directions, colors, spatial concepts, auditory memory and auditory processing. From the simplest of directions (“Touch the cat”) to the more complex (“With your orange crayon, color the large one that is a furry pet and likes to chase mice”) your child can grow and learn with this game over time. Colorful, vivid art and animations against a white background combine to create a complete game experience without visual clutter. Sound effects and surprises keep the game engaging! This app is a great choice for a toddler/preschooler, or any young child who would like to practice listening to or reading directions!

Fun with Directions: We are very pleased to see a leading Speech & Language Pathology practitioner like Patti Hamaguchi developing apps.  She put her years of practical experience working with kids with auditory processing issues and created these awesome apps.  Of course, we don’t expect anything less from Patti.  We have known her for over 7 years and she did an outstanding job with these app.  If you have kid with  Auditory Processing issues and ‘Following directions’ is in your IEP, this is the app for you. There is a lite version of this app available if you want to try.

Before developing these apps, Patti wrote couple of books about Auditory processing. It’s Time to Listen: A Metacognitive Program for Treating Auditory Processing Disorders in the Classroom. (Pro-Ed, Inc, revised edition 2001) Another book, A Metacognitive Program for Treating Auditory Processing Disorders, was published by Pro-Ed, Inc. in 2002. In 2007, Mrs. Hamaguchi authored two chapters in the text, “Auditory Processing Disorders” (Plural Publishing).

    I just received a new Ipad for our classroom. I am trying to explore new apps. This is wonderful. All my kid’s speech testing show that following directions was one of there biggest struggles. This app would be a great way to practice this skill.

  2. Richard Stott says:

    I have a few of the Hearbuilder programs for PC but don’t have any similar apps- I’m glad somebody is starting to develop these for SLPs :)

  3. Caren Sue Evans says:

    I am a parent with two boys with autism…fairly new to apps, I don’t have one like this one. This looks awesome!! Very excited for the chance to win!! Thanks for the opportunity!! God Bless Patti and Technology in Education!! caren_evans@yahoo.com

  4. Kathryn Mikronis says:

    I would love this app! I currently have See, Touch, Learn but I need an advancing app to help with auditory processing. My son needs help with multiple step directions, I hope this app will help him!

  5. Tricia Kenny says:

    I would love to win this – I work with lots of kiddos who have trouble following directions, especially as they get a little longer and more involved.

  6. Kris R says:

    I have a son that so needs help with auditory processing. This would be a blessing to have for him. Thank you so much for offering this.

  7. Sheila N. says:

    we don’t have anything like this app! Following directions and listening are skills that are so important…would love this app! Thanks

  8. Jacy Gerhardt says:

    I don’t currently have any apps specifically for following directions, and I have students who need to work on this. It looks great. Going to look into the app developer and see if she has more apps. :)

  9. Karen Boros says:

    I do not currently have this specific app yet but from what I have heard and read it seems like it will be a nice addition to my I practice verbs and preposition remix apps!

  10. Kelley Metzger says:

    My son has been working on this since he was diagnosed with autism in 2007. He loves our iPads and the ones at school. I’ll be sending a link of this to his resource teacher.

  11. Mary Costello says:

    Been too busy to check out many apps lately but this certainly caught my eye. I can use this app to work on compliance so I’m not having to think of directions. Every time my son follows a direction, he’ll get a step up the ladder to his next reward. Chocolate is quite the motivator-for us both.

  12. cassie vander meulen says:

    This app looks similar to the Language Comprehension apps, where you have to listen to the question and choose the right answer…and i LOVE anything that helps re-enforce the auditory processing my daughter really struggles with!!!

  13. LaJean Bonestroo says:

    We don’t have an ipad, but try collecting as much info as we can for our granddaughter, and this looks like a great app!

  14. Janine m says:

    This app looks great to help a little girls at my school. Currently use see touch learn and a variety of other apps. Well done.

  15. Christa Jennette says:

    My daughter has bilateral CI’s and we are really working on aud memory! Our other directions app has a strange British accent! This looks great!

  16. Frances A. says:

    I am very excited about this give away because I just wrote IEP’s with speech and language goals even though I am a classroom teacher, speech doesn’t end at the end of the speech lesson, students must have every opportunity to learn how to communicate more effectively.

  17. Amy Vinson Taylor says:

    I have the lite versions of Hamaguchi apps and they are wonderful for working with my young students on and off of the spectrum. This would be super to have in my speech therapy tool bag!

  18. Ann Doran says:

    Am a SLT in the school system in SC. I have many apps(Easy Concepts, See. Touch. Learn. Pro to name a few) but nothing that is as unique as Fun with Directions. My caseload consists of children with ASD. Would love this app to meet the needs of my students. The screenshots are awesome. Just like Easy Concepts, you have found a way to develop an app that is not like any other app. Thanks for this opportunity:)

  19. Tea says:

    I currently don’t have any apps that target this specifically. I have a few apps though that I use in a similar fashion. My playhome is one; I sit with my child and ask him to do specific things; like put the toothpaste on the toothbrush, etc.

  20. Veronika says:

    I currently have the lite version of Hamaguchi Apps. I also have the More Fun with Directions app and would really like just Fun with Directions. Thank you

  21. elaine says:

    Hi, We have the lite version of Fun with Directions and Picture the sentence and find them a great help and lovely to use.

  22. dina says:

    What other apps Similar Apps you have? I dont have anything close so this would be a great addition to help aiden in speech

  23. Mellisa says:

    Splingo is a good auditory comprehension/direction following app but the voice/accent it uses can be difficult for kids to understand at times (also British vocabulary for some items).

  24. Alison says:

    I don’t have anything like this. I usually turn regular apps into activities for following directions, myself. Eg- Toca Hair Salon: color his hair green, then shave his beard. I’d love to use this this app with my students in speech therapy!

  25. Deanne says:

    I don’t currently have any apps that target this area specifically and its an area that both of my sons need support with. Thanks for the giveaway.

  26. Lisa says:

    My daughter rushes through many apps, not taking the time to listen (Splingo). She needs to learn to slow down and respond to instructions rather than hitting random options until the correct answer is obtained. Thanks for the opportunity to obtain this app. It sounds great!

  27. Erin says:

    I have the lite version of see.touch.learn. Otherwise I use regular apps (just got felt board for this reason) or traditional non-app therapy activities. This app (as well as more fun with directions) is definitely on my wish list.

    This looks like a great app with such a depth of flexibility built in! Can’t wait to try the lite version!

  30. carol says:

    I would love to gift this app to the parent of a child I use it with at school. I know of no other app similar to this (other than More Fun with Directions by the same developer), but do wish there were more available.

  31. Jennifer Halahurich says:

    My son is non verbal and we are working so hard on his receptive language and this would be a great app for him.

  32. Helen Wagner says:

    HI! I don’t have any other similar apps. I do have a cd from Super Duper on Listening and Following Directions. That’s all I have.

  33. Melissa says:

    I love the lite version and would love the full…thanks so much for doing the giveaway! I have a 10 yr old with severe autism and do a workshop called, “Apps with Autism”….

  34. Beth says:
