SLPeeps, I have been a terrible SLPBlogger the past few months, and I apologize. Graduate school is finally over (!), and end-of-degree busyness is no longer a priority! I’m on vacation this week, so I’m all yours. And what better time to start back up than Better Hearing and Speech Month?! So, what new apps have I been using the past month or two? Well, working with adults since January, I of course have been using my Tactus Therapy apps like crazy (read my thoughts on this one and this one). In addition, however, I have started using a new AAC evaluation app. I bought it a little while back but only recently have had a frequent use for it. Without further ado…

Note From Speechie Apps: When I was asked to review the Fluently app by Balbus Speech, I knew my minimal experience with fluency could never do it justice. Thankfully, I also knew Evan Sherman would be perfect for the job, and I was beyond thrilled when he agreed to do it! Before you check out the review, head over to his website I Stutter, So What? and follow him on Twitter to show him some love. If you have any interest in fluency whatsoever, he will be a great resource for you! Without further ado, here are his thoughts on Fluently! Continue reading →
I’ve been neglecting you Android users lately, so I wanted to share a little love and tell you about a relatively new app that works on both Android and Apple operating systems! It’s also one of the few kids’ apps available on Google Play to measure up to what is available on iOS, in my oh-so-humble opinion.
Several weeks ago, there was a discussion within the SLPs Talk Apps group about various wh questions apps and the similarities/differences in what they had to offer. With that discussion in mind, I want to share my thoughts on this Smarty Ears app so that you can make up your mind about which app would best meet your needs! Look back at my review of the Super Duper wh questions app if you want to compare. I have also outlined some similarities/differences at the end of this post and included some thoughts on which app might be best for different users.
I’ve used (and even reviewed) apps by this developer before, so I was excited to hear they had a new app coming out and wanted me to review it! Life got in the way, so it has already been out a couple months now, but I am still thrilled to share it with you.
