Customized Comprehension & Learning in Visual Scenes
September 3, 2012 9:00 AM by Megan Sutton
TinyTap is an unlikely candidate for my blog, falling short on two criteria I look for in good adult therapy apps - it requires customization before it will work (a no-no for busy clinicians with caseload pressures), and it is designed for preschool kids Read More...

Here is a fun little app that costs 99 cents. It's developed by Jr Imagination for the iPhone but works perfectly on the iPad. On-The-Go appears to be meant for a fun car trip but also makes a fun creative therapy session! It is made up of three cool Read More...

Start the Conversation
August 13, 2012 9:20 AM by Megan Sutton

Drooling Over an App
July 9, 2012 8:30 AM by Megan Sutton
Sometimes there's a beautifully simple and inexpensive solution to a troublesome problem. The problem is drooling, and the solution has been installed on my iPad for months, but I've only recently come to appreciate the power of a little app called Swallow Read More...

Visual Feedback for Volume
June 18, 2012 9:16 AM by Megan Sutton
"Do you remember what we did yesterday?" I asked the soft-spoken elderly woman as she entered the speech treatment room. "We scared the cat." Oh right! I was thinking of the sequencing activities, elaborating on descriptions of common tasks, that I had Read More...
