Getting Started with the Speech Kingdom App
Initial Screen — Interactive Tour
This is the first screen you will see after starting the app, either after downloading from the App Store, Google Play or using the Launch Desktop App from this site. You will also see this screen when you are not logged in.
Student and Parent (adult) Avatar
A good place to start is with the Interactive Tour. Here, you will create your student's avatars, find out about Speech Kingdom's offerings and even see some samples from a social story called Personal Space.
Click the Interactive Tour button to begin your tour of Speech Kingdom, including:
Student and Parent Avatar Creation
First, you will create an avatar to represent your student and another avatar to represent that student's parent or other supervising adult.
Your student and adult will appear throughout Speech Kingdom's stories and some games.
We put your student in Speech Kingdom's content to encourage him or her to more readily engage. Experts have found that doing so makes students far more successful and receptive to learning while increasing engagement.
Fundamental Skills Mini Stories
After you create your avatars, you will see a brief description of Speech Kingdom's Fundamental Skills Mini-Stories. Each mini-story focuses on a single safety, executive function, life skill or social skill and includes a downloadable PDF workbook.
Workbooks include coloring pages and writing practice, both of which reinforces their respective skills.
Each social story is presented in three levels:
Intermediate Level (10-12 screens) and Proficient Level (15-17 screens) stories include end-of-scene as well as end-of-story comprehension questions. Downloadable PDF worksheets with fill-in-the-blanks comprehension lessons are also included for each.
Personal Space — A Sample Social Story
Your student will see themselves in our sample screens from a story about Personal Space. He or she will learn an important lesson from the teacher, Miss Jackson, along with friends, Joey, Jane, Mark, Maddie and more.
Students learn about Theory of Mind as characters glow with a yellow halo. Just make sure your audio is on, click the glowing character and they will speak out whatever they are thinking.
In the end, Miss Jackson will help your student understand the importance of personal space and how to avoid invading someone else's "body bubble."
Rewards and Reinforcers
Speech Kingdom's reinforcers are beautiful animations that are customized with your student's avatar. Your student will watch themself do a cannonball into a swimming pool, dance in a squirrel suit, swing a light saber, jump on a mountain top and more.
Our large library of reinforcers also includes gymnastics, soccer, your student as a superhero and more. Watch your student dance and dab and perform in many other fun scenes.
Click on any of the samples to see your student in action!!
Speech Kingdom Games
Speech Kingdom's growing library of games are designed to improve cognition, language and social skills.
As new games are added, each is included as part of your Speech Kingdom subscription and will automatically appear on your devices when you use the app. Speech Kingdom does NOT require in-app purchases.
Each game offers a variety of levels and hundreds of customization combinations. Games include a robust database of content to increase their effectiveness and to ensure that students do not quickly complete or tire of individual games.
At any point during the Interactive Tour, you can exit and sign up for a Speech Kingdom membership to join our growing family of Speech Kingdom students.
