Jump down to speech therapy apps reviews now! or Read why jumping on the Ipad bandwagon is a good idea...in moderation!
I still have reservations about using an Ipad for every therapy session as it takes away from natural conversational skills; however, there are some WONDERFUL benefits including:
This Super Duper Data Tracker app is fantastic for so many reasons. One, you can't beat the price, $1.99. Two, it keeps track of all your data over multiple sessions for all your students in one spot. Click here to read my full review: speech therapy apps: Data Tracker.
Make your work life easier with this articulation screener. I am finally more organized with my artic screenings and I can complete them in a shorter amount of time. The results are easily understood by non-speechies as well!
There are many "game apps" out there that work on specific skills. While I think these apps are good to use once in a while as a treat, I am not ready to use them daily during sessions.
I don't want my children to get really good at an app and not carry over their progress to the classroom and/or daily life.
HOWEVER, I LOVE data tracking apps that can measure and graph progress. They make my life so much easier. I will also be reviewing "game" apps that are worth the purchase and hopefully find some free apps along the way.
