Navigate from the menu screen to start playing. You may review the student's fish tank or their performance statistics by clicking the "book" button.
Select your players
Cards will show up providing visual prompts for the targets you are practicing. For word and syllable level practice, audio cues will play as well. No audio cues will play for custom targets. Don’t be alarmed if you do not hear any additional sounds other than the audio cues coming from the game!
Select your exercises and level
Select what exercises you would like the participant to practice. Choose from /r/, /l/, or “ch” at isolation, syllable, or word level. Or, create a custom practice session to work on any target you’d like. For example, you could work on /p/ and /b/ in isolation, or grammatical morphemes like regular past tense endings. Use the app as your data tracking tool and reinforcement for any activity you’re planning. Click on the
“shuffle” icon to randomly present any selected targets.
Start your practice
To begin playing the game, select the number of players
you would like to play during this session. If it doesn’t already
exist, create a profile for the participant using only their first
name. If you have more than one participant with the same name,
use a number to differentiate them. Do not enter any additional identifying information such as a last name. Then select what
character you would like to play with.
Utilize the features
Use the green and red buttons to reinforce or not
reinforce the student’s production. If the shuffle feature has been selected, prompts from each exercise will appear at random. If the shuffle feature is not selected, the exercises will be presented in order. The game will present all cues
available for that exercise before moving to the next exercise in the list for that player. If you would like to hear an audio cue again, click the prompt card to replay the audio.

are ready to end the session press the “Menu” button
