best speech therapy apps for adults

Creating the best speech therapy apps for adults is our passion. We’ve been making & using speech therapy apps since 2011, and in that time we’ve seen a LOT of apps and have plenty of experience with what works and what doesn’t work.

All the apps on this free list have been used in a clinical setting, vouched for by a practicing clinician, and/or recommended by a client who found success using it. For every app on this list, there were two that were downloaded & discarded for one reason or another. Maybe they crashed, had errors, or showed too many ads. Perhaps the others just overlapped with apps that did more or did the same thing but better. Often speech therapy apps are aimed at children with cartoon graphics and can be demeaning towards adults with communication problems. Those didn’t make this list.

What will I find in the list?
You’ll find 170 apps for:

Language (Aphasia)
Speech (Apraxia, Dysarthria)
AAC (Augmentative & Alternative Communication)
Swallowing (Dysphagia)
Each app has an icon, description, price, and up to 4 links:

Link to a paid app on the App Store for iPad/iPhone
Link to a free app or trial version on the App Store
Link to a paid app on the Google Play Store for Android users
Link to a free app or trial version on the Google Play Store
Speech Therapy Apps are Always Changing
The prices and availability can change at any time, so please double-check on your device’s App Store or Google Play Store. Some apps may be slightly different on Android and Apple devices, or even created by different developers. Developers can update their apps with new features at any point, either adding or removing functionality, so watch for updates that may affect therapeutic use.

Prices are listed in US dollars. If you are outside the US, check the price on your device for your local currency. The prices are not straight-up currency conversions – they are set in tiers. Many prices outside the US include sales tax (VAT/GST), so they may appear higher than they are.

Titles and icons can also change, so we’ve included links to take you straight to the App Store or Google Play Store. That’s why it’s best that you share this list electronically instead of printing it. Also, if you notice an app that is no longer available, isn’t as advertised, or a great app is missing, please let us know!

How should I use the list?
Here’s what to do next:

Open the list on the mobile device that you’ll be using for therapy.

Go straight down the Free/Lite column and click the links to download every free app that sparks your interest.

Set aside some time to explore the apps to see if they meet your needs. Keep in mind that many “free” apps still have in-app purchases or subscriptions. Delete the ones you don’t like or want to upgrade.

Look carefully at the apps that are paid, and purchase the ones you want. Spending a few dollars, or even a few hundred dollars, on apps can make your life so much easier than just using the free ones.

Invest in the tools you need, because as with most things in life, quality and convenience are worth paying for.
