Bla Bla Bla

App Name/Publisher: Bla Bla Bla/Lorenzo Bravi

Description: Bla Bla Bla is an app which allows you to choose a black and white design that will then react to sounds entering the microphone.  According to the Creative Applications Network, Bla Bla Bla  was "created by the students at the design department of IUAV of Venice and later at the ISIA of Urbino. This app is a little selection of an exercise called “Parametric Mask” with aim to introduce students to “Procedures of Basic Design” and the basics of programming." How interesting that an app developed in this manner could be useful to SLPs! (see below).  Thank you to OT Beth Lloyd for pointing out this app to me.

Therapy Use: Bla Bla Bla is like a VisiPitch, but without the quantitative information (and frankly it is more fun).  We all have students that have difficulty moderating the volume of their voices, whether they be kiddos heading for vocal nodules or those with autism spectrum disorders or related issues. Bla Bla Bla can provide good visual feedback to help kids develop a sense of voice volume, as the SLP works on related processes like breath control or perhaps in conjunction with an Incredible 5 Point Scale of volume.  The app could also be used to encourage nonverbal children to vocalize.

The kitty responding to my phonating at a normal volume.

The kitty looks a bit surprised by my increased volume.
App Benefits/Likes: Fun visual interface, many choices of designs to keep the activity novel.

Cautions: Some children may find the designs scary, or not be able to leave the "experimentation" phase with the app and be reinforced by what happens when they shout! Use your judgment. Also, beware that there is another app called Bla Bla Bla in the app store which "automatically generates political or business speeches) and costs $.99. That's not the one I am reviewing here.
