Articulate It! an App review

I haven’t done an app review in a while and it’s time. Now one of my all-time-favorite apps has been recently updated, and I think it’s time to share the love.

Articulate it! is easily the first app that I think of when I consider articulation drill (and that’s saying something since I authored the phono learning center app for phono therapy!).

Vowels, vowels, who has the vowels…

Also known as HOW can I get a good /r/ out of this kid? teamwork

I’m fairly sure /r/ is one of the most hated sounds to have to work on, simply because it can be so tricky and there are SO many variations.

TRC Contest Winners

Thank you all for the great comments on various Smarty Ears apps!

There were 24 total comments (but 4 were mine and don’t count). I used a random number generator to choose the two winners.

I have emailed the winners Hallie and Annie and given them their codes.

I have heard recently that a new Smarty Ears app will be out soon. The Reading Comprehension app looks like it will be absolutely amazing! I can’t wait to see it and use it in my therapy.

What type of app would you like best to see Smarty Ears develop? Anything in particular? Drop me a line!

Until then…Adventure on!

Adventures with TRC

Smarty Ears Applications recently released The Therapy Report Center (TRC). I am pleased to do a review on this great little app.

What it IS…(besides fabulous)… Continue reading

Adventures in Sequencing with HearBuilder

Also known as How to Teach Story Telling…

Otherwise known as Why Yes, I Can Tell You What Happened!

In previous posts, I’ve written about HearBuilder Following Directions (three posts even….talk about verbose!). Today, I have the pleasure of writing about HearBuilder Sequencing. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I like it as well as, possibly even better than, the following directions software. Continue reading
