How to use Tap Roulette App in Therapy- A Guest Post from Speech Room News

Today, I have a guest post from Jenna Rayburn over at Speech Room News here today to share about how to use a FREE app she found to use in your therapy rooms.  I am always dabbling with my IPAD trying to find FREE apps that I can use with my kids, so I am excited to have Jenna sharing with us all.  I love her blog and all her creativity!
I’m so happy to be sharing a quick idea with you today! Writing guests post is always fun! You can find similar ideas over at Speech Room News if you enjoy what your read!
Tap Roulette is a great free app that we’ve been using for a variety of activities in my Speech Room! The free app works by allowing students to place one finger on the screen. It then randomly selects one person by turning the screen red around it.
As you can tell, this app will work for any speech or language goal.

Here are a few ways I have used it!

1. Decide who will go first during a game.

2. Articulation: Each child says a word from their card deck and then put their finger on Tap Roulette. The student who wins gets one point.

3. Language: Students answer questions and if they complete it correctly they earn a chance play Tap Roulette. The student who wins earns one point!
It’s a perfect app to use when you have an extra 5 minutes at the end of a session and is ideal for the busy SLP in the schools! Do you have any other ideas for Tap Roulette?

  1. Thanks, ladies!!! I use a very similar app called “Not it” by Fueled. It has the same concept. The only difference is it seems to support unlimited fingers (I tried it with 10 and it worked!). The Tap roulette app states it supports up to 5. I LOVE this kind of app because it curtails the “Can I go first?” battle that occurrs in my room at the start of every group – and sometimes in the hallway on the way to my office!
