CCC-SLP, It's All Language blog
Keyword Understanding is a comprehensive auditory processing and receptive language application. You can set levels, monitor data collection, and help your students with multiple listening challenges. I have already found success with it for some of my students with autism as well as language delays.

Every child I have used it with has been very engaged by the lovely, brightly-coloured pictures, and has quite happily kept on listening and following the instructions.
