Moscow, July 11: If your child is unable to communicate effectively, then engaging him or her to tablet-based games is likely to act as a speech therapy and boost the kid’s motivation and satisfaction, according to a study. According to researchers, games can also be used both in hospitals and in outpatient activities. “Gadgets can be really helpful, and not merely entertainment devices. In speech therapy, more and more practical activities have been based on computer games lately. Kids can solve crosswords and puzzles, pronounce words that are difficult for them,” said Andreja Istenic Starcic from Kazan Federal University in Russia.
Previous studies comparing tablet-based and traditional math programmes showed that kids can become more involved in gamified tasks on tablets than in traditional textbook tasks. (IANS)
