Questions2Learn By Speech Pups LLC
By Helen Wagner
Kids love dogs, and the use of therapy dogs as a reinforcer is a great idea! My kids loved them! This is a nicely done app that will be very beneficial in speech therapy class! I would definitely recommend it to others. I would rate it 4.5.

Questions2Learn is an app designed to practice Who, What, Where and When questions! Whether you are working individually or with a group of up to 4 students, this is a great way to work on Wh- questions. Included in the program are 262 functional questions for everyday situations, plus, you have the awesome ability to easily customize your very own Wh- questions to meet your students needs! Make your own comprehension questions from your own lessons! With plenty of customization settings and data tracking, this is a very well-rounded app.
How to Play: You are required to do a little quick set-up before you begin, to tailor the program to fit your needs. Select a student or a group of up to four students. Select your level (three, four, five, or no picture choices). Select whether you want visual prompting and auditory feedback, and your reinforcement type ( auditory, visual) and schedule (intermittent, continuous). Choose Wh- question types desired and question categories (Community, Food/Drinks, Health, Home, Leisure/Recreational, School). Select if you want to use a spoken voice and visuals for trials. Now, push the GO button and you are ready to begin answering your questions! At the completion of a set of questions, the user can go to the data collection chart to see specific data collection information for all tasks attempted. Results can be printed or emailed.
- Consider a training section/auditory bombardment for the wh questions. It would be great to tell the students about each type of question.
- Ability for children to record their answers would be nice!
- Ability to stretch /enlarge the pictures would be nice, as they are small and sometimes
- difficult to see! They could be bigger on the page.
- I would like to be able to use with a group of up to six students.

*** We found a minor bug (when uploading images from iPad photo library). We are in the process of getting it fixed. ***
Questions2Learn helps students understand and learn how to answer functional who, what, where, and when questions. The Speech Pups, Moca and Dakota, will reinforce your students while they answer questions! Choose a category that you want to answer questions from: school, home, food & drinks, health, community, and leisure/recreational.
Questions2Learn was created by Leanne Pool, a certified speech language pathologist. Many of Leanne’s students have difficulty using their verbal abilities and/or have significant cognitive weaknesses. These students benefited from using Questions2Learn during therapy sessions.
Questions2Learn will save you time when creating activities that target answering questions. Customize your own categories of questions by typing questions that are specific for the activities you are planning. This customized feature allows you to upload images from your photo library, take pictures using the camera, and record your voice.
Another great feature of Questions2Learn is the option to modify the picture choices for each pre-programmed question. If the pre-programmed pictures are not what you would choose, you have the ability to modify them. You can either upload a picture from your photo library, take a picture, or choose a different picture from the pre-programmed picture library.
Questions2Learn allows you to adjust each student’s settings so you can work on their individual needs that change often. The data collection feature will save you time and make collecting data much easier.
