Storybooks-apps -effective for child development
Main ideas (1)
Reading storybooks with pictures is good for vocabulary development
No time?
solution = digital storybooks

Why effective?

What does research say?
Two studies:
Background music and sounds interfere with new word learning for SLI children
Speech perception could be underlying factor of SLI
Severity more important than nature of the problem

Vocabulary and reading comprehension
Main ideas(2)
Reading comprehension involves different processes
Predictors - longitudinal study Muter and colleagues, 2004
learn more difficult words than from classical storybooks
zoom in
simultaneous presentation
language becomes concrete
extra features: clicking, music, sounds,
extra explanation: mouseclick/touch vs MC questions
SLI children profit from digital storybooks:
no background music
no sounds
Both of these articles concluded that electronic e-books
• can be beneficial for word learning for normal readers and (Smeets & Bus, 2012)
• are effective ways to increase SLI children’s expressive vocabulary, even when there is no adult support (Smeets , et al., 2012)

Findings from both articles provide valuable information for educators to expand the vocabulary of their students but also for speech-language pathologists for evaluating and designing interventions for SLI children
Why effective?
Dutch reports are in line with the research from the 2 studies.

However, not always objective e.g.:

"Ouders kunnen hun kinderen met een gerust hart laten voorlezen
door een prentenboek-app, in plaats van het zelf te doen."

"Parents can let their children read storybook apps with confidence
instead of reading out themselves. "
