My under-18 caseload has been significantly limited the past few months, so I haven’t been reviewing many children’s apps. However, I did use this app to assess several kids, and I wanted to share my thoughts!

“Talk Like a Pirate Day” Apps

Ahoy, mateys! I be writin’ a blog message fer ye ’bout apps to use on Speak Like a Scurvy Pirate Day! (Translation: Oh boy, who the heck convinced me to do this?!) Kookoo bananas Bill Binko ‘o LessonPix shanghai’d a few ‘o us bloggers to do pirate-themed posts to celebrate ’tis “holiday,” so here’s me best spin on it.

If you’re one of those scoundrel SLPs that loves to get kids hyped up then send them on their way, this post (and holiday in general) is for you!

Enjoy, and let me know if you have any questions or other pirate-themed ideas!

While this app is based on an animal hospital, the game’s set-up is quite similar to Toca Doctor. Here are my thoughts on it:

What It Is: An app for “playing vet” and healing hurt/sick animals by TribePlay.
