For the one in ten children in the UK who enter school with a speech, language or communication need, early intervention can have a huge impact on literacy and attainment. MyChoicePad is a free iPad app (with an Android version coming soon) that lets users build their own grid of photos, symbols, signs, and voice recordings, to increase language development, vocabulary and confidence, including for under-fives and those with special educational needs. The only app in the UK that uses Makaton symbols, it is backed by speech and language therapists, and is used by thousands as a teaching aid in schools.
