SmallTalk App Spotlight: Common Phrases

Jul 11, 2017 | by Michael Boeri

This is a series of blogs that will feature our free SmallTalk apps available for the iPad®, iPhone®, and iPod touch® on the App Store®.

This month, we explore SmallTalk Common Phrases.

When someone suffers from aphasia or another type of communication disorder, it makes communicating even the simplest things difficult, such as saying "hello" or "I love you." At Lingraphica, we understand how frustrating this can be, so we developed our SmallTalk Common Phrases app to help people communicate what they want or need to say.

The SmallTalk Common Phrases app provides a series of speech-exercise videos, each illustrating the tongue and lip movements necessary to produce common phrases. 

The mouth-position videos for each icon are helpful for practicing phrases and strengthening communication skills. 

The app contains three phrase categories: aphasia, conversation, and greeting. In total, there are 34 different phrases to choose from. Some examples of phrases are listed below:

  • Thank you!
  • I'm happy to see you
  • It's hard to talk
  • Speak slowly
