Outdoor Fun is an iPad application, designed by a certified speech pathologist with an idea of providing speech pathologists and parents with a fun and flexible tool to practice expressive and receptive language skills. Outdoor Fun consists of three colorful and animated scenes with kids having fun at the beach, park and mountains. Each scene can be operated in two ways making the total of 6 scene scenarios. One version of the scene is called “clickable” when the child or SLP clicks on objects or kids in the scene and animation is played. Another version of the scene is called “arrange” when the child can add and arrange object or kids in the scene. In addition each scene is accompanied by background sound ,e.g. sound of the ocean, to make the scene more realistic and also to help children practice their listening skills in the presence of environmental distracters.
