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!).
Here is WHY I love it… Continue reading
Also known as HOW can I get a good /r/ out of this kid?
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. But, I’ll tell you a secret if you promise not to tell anyone…I secretly like it. It’s a challenge. I’d much rather have a kid with a severe sound-system disorder (read phono) than a simple artic issue. I know…I’m weird. Even though I like a challenge, I’m always on the lookout for an app or some tool to help make it a bit easier for our kids. I mean, /r/ is challenging enough without prolonging it, right?

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.
As you can see, comments 10 and 17 were the 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!
Smarty Ears Applications recently released The Therapy Report Center (TRC). I am pleased to do a review on this great little app.
First, let me explain what it isn’t… it isn’t a game, it isn’t a therapy activity, and it isn’t an expensive therapy tool.
What it IS…(besides fabulous)… Continue reading
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
