What others say about Inference Pics

When working with older children or adults, Inference Pics is a fantastic solution that offers flexibility and ease of use. While there are many options for apps out there, this one stands out to help clients with important inferencing skills.

Dan Fitch, CCC-SLP, It’s All Language

I was impressed with the app. I love the real photos, the range of sections and scenarios. I think the price is great and I would happily recommend the app.

Elizabeth Gunner, SLT, Speech Blog UK

Inference Pics is an easy-to-use app to practice inference skills along with Wh questions, pragmatic language, turn-taking and vocabulary skills. It uses real life photos not cartoons which help with carryover skills. It takes data which saves time for busy SLPs and it has built in scaffolding and answer choices.

How to Use Inference Pics

Inference Pics has seven activities: What has happened?, Jobs, Places, Seasons, Feelings, Thoughts, Conversations. While there are multiple choice options available, the app is designed to be interactive with a family member or therapist helping the child or adult user. 

Each activity has two questions. The first question asks the user to make an inference e.g. What has happened? How are they feeling? etc. The second question in each activity is “How do you know?”. This is to promote verbal expression and the person’s ability to find the clues in the picture (e.g. body language, facial expression) and make an appropriate social inference.


Choose one of the seven categories in Inference Pics


Ask the child or adult the question displayed on top or play the question


Display the multiple choice options if they have difficulty answering


Support the person to find the clues in the picture e.g. body language, facial expression and to make an appropriate inference


Help the person to form well-shaped answers
