Visual and Auditory Reinforcement
ADJECTIVE REMIX AND RESPONSE TO INTERVENTION
Adjective Remix is an ideal component for Response to Intervention (RTI) as well. The app, with teacher direction, allows for an intensive teaching of the material, expansion of vocabulary, and application of the skills learned. The data collection that occurs for each player allows individual progress monitoring to occur. Exporting into and out of the Therapy Report Center ensures progress monitoring is maintained easily.
ADJECTIVE REMIX AND THE COMMON CORE
With the wealth of data available Adjective Remix is the perfect companion to help students meet common core requirements in English Language Arts. Answering “WH” questions, Producing and expanding complete sentences in shared language activities, and sorting common objects into categories is a requirement of the Common Core State Standards required in most grades (CCSSI, 2014).

– Ability to use the app for screening or teaching
– Data Collection over time for each student

“This is a great app for addressing adjectives with practical pictures and flexible settings. I will have fun supplementing my therapy with this nicely designed app—and my kiddos will be happy to have another great reason to use the ipad!!”
“I love that you can target multiple categories of adjectives during a given game. The photos all include real objects, making them highly contextual for clients requiring the real-deal (rather than line drawings or clip art depictions of an object).
“I’d say this app is great. It’s a wonderful addition to my therapy tool box and I look forward to using it with my students.”
“This is another great tool for your iPad if you are a speech pathologist, teacher, or parent!”
“This has been great to use with elementary students for learning adjectives. It’s rewarding to the students to use the iPad and they love the characters on the app.”
