Abstract

This paper presents three mobile application systems which have been designed and developed at the Department of Fundamental and Applied Linguistics of Novosibirsk State University, Russian Federation. These mobile applications are "Logoball", "Developing Speech", and "PictInteraction". The diagnostic system "Logoball" aims at detecting speech defects in children having different language problems. The programme "Developing Speech" is intended to be used for the development of impressive speech in children with the specific language impairment. The mobile application "PictInteraction" deals with the development of coherent speech in children with speech disturbances. It also serves as a means of alternative communication for such children. The mobile applications are described in some detail. The paper briefly discusses the strengths and weaknesses of the applications as well as the opportunities they provide to the children with language problems, to their parents, and to the speech and language therapists who work with the children having language problems.
