Whether you are a parent or SLP, the following apps are a must have if you are considering downloading educational language learning apps. These are some of my favorite apps to use during speech therapy that are available in a variety of languages. Check them out!
This is a bundle App that is available in both Spanish and English. This app comes with pictures A to Z with themes about actions, music, aquarium, farm, and bugs. This app is perfect for working on building vocabulary, answering questions about a picture scene or simply having your student expand his/her utterances by describing the pictures.
This is a great app to work on identifying and labeling common categories like shapes, colors, numbers, body parts, animals, transportation items, & food. This app allows you to choose from the following languages: English, Spanish, Chinese, & French. You can also utilize this app as a reinforcer during structured activities!
Learn Spanish allows you to choose between Chinese, English, Spanish, French, Russian and Vietnamese! This app is great for working on verbs. It provides visuals, a video for each verb and allows you to hear the verb in a sentence.
This app allows you to work on listening comprehension. You can also go over story elements such as main characters. It comes with one free story and then you have to pay for the rest. The stories included are the turtle & the hare, the lion & the mouse, the three little pigs, and Goldilocks and the three bears.
This app is also great for working on categories of common objects like farm animals, food, and transportation items. With this app, you can work on identifying and labeling the items.
This app is great for working on articulation in Spanish. It provides target words for each of the phonemes in the Spanish language. You can also choose to work on the target phoneme in words, phrases or sentences
This is another app that you can use to work on articulation of vowels. Just like Articulation Station, you can also choose to work on the target phoneme in words, phrases or sentences.
It's great to have options when working on articulation. Here is another app that I love using when working on articulation. It also provides several target words for each phoneme in the Spanish language and it also allows you to choose between working on the sound in the initial, medial and final position of words

With the holiday season approaching, you are probably wondering what to buy for your little bilingual, or perhaps you are looking to gift an educational toy to a little one on a bilingual journey. Well lucky for you, you are in the right spot! As a bilingual speech language pathologist and new bilingual mom, I am constantly on the search for toys that can provide English and Spanish output.

Who are we?
Bilingual Speechie LLC. is a small business dedicated to providing inclusive and engaging speech therapy resources and activities for bilingual children, parents, SLPs and educators.
Bilingual Speechie LLC promotes bilingualism and multilingualism by dispelling common myths, providing education on bilingual language development, and promoting heritage language maintenance amongst bilingual families.
About the Owner:
Liliana Diaz-Vazquez is a certified licensed bilingual speech language pathologist (SLP), currently practicing in Chicago, Illinois. She obtained her bachelor’s degree in communication disorders (2012) and her master’s degree in speech language pathology at Saint Xavier University (2014). She is a certified member of the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association (ASHA) since 2014, a member of the Illinois Speech and Hearing Association (ISHA) since 2014 and maintains licensure in the state of Illinois.
Liliana is a first-generation Mexican-American Latina, a small business owner, a full-time school-based SLP, & a bilingual parent, who takes pride in her roots, culture, & heritage language. She loves being able to share her experience as a Latina SLP, and a bilingual mom, as well as her culture & heritage language with the educator, SLP, and parent community.
Liliana Diaz-Vazquez has extensive experience working with the bilingual English and Spanish speaking population & multilingual population. She specializes in augmentative/alternative communication (AAC), bilingual language development and language delays/disorders in bilingual/multilingual children. She has also worked in the early intervention setting for several years where she gained vast experience working with interpreters and bilingual/multilingual families.
Liliana began creating digital bilingual resources and activities in 2014 out of need while working full-time in the school setting as a SLP. Liliana worked with many Spanish-speaking families and quickly realized that there were limited Spanish and bilingual speech therapy resources available for her students and their families. In addition, Liliana quickly became aware that there was a need for education about bilingualism and typical bilingual language development as many of the families she worked with had encountered misinformation about bilingualism. Liliana began developing resources and eventually started Bilingual Speechie LLC with the mission to provide education to SLPs and families about bilingualism, as well as provide inclusive and diverse materials for speech therapy in order to help bilingual families and SLPs gain access to appropriate bilingual materials for children with communication disorders.
Today Liliana currently works full-time in the Chicago public school setting as a lead bilingual SLP where she consults and collaborates with SLPs daily to help them understand how to assess and provide culturally and linguistically appropriate services for bilingual and/or multilingual students. She also runs her small business, Bilingual Speechie LLC, and is on a mission to expand and grow her business so that all SLPs, educators, and families can have access to inclusive, diverse, and bilingual resources in a variety of languages for speech therapy.
Liliana has vast experience as a speaker/presenter and has presented at several conferences over the years. You can view all previous conferences and topics that Liliana has presented on here. Liliana is available to present on topics such as best practices when working with multilingual populations, bilingual speech/language assessment and treatment, goal writing with multilingual populations and much more.
