    ''Modeling and instructing the client to use easy voluntary prolongations at the beginning of phrases facilitates easy onset of voice, continuous voice production, and reduces laryngeal tension as well as allows for a reduction of subglottal air pressure prior to voice production.'' - Dr. Peter Ramig Fluently, by Balbus Speech, is a real time ...

    An app developed for children with ASD, SpeechPrompts by HandHold Adaptive is designed to help speech therapists target rate, rhythm, intonation, and loudness.

  • Start the Conversation

    One might think that Speech-Language Pathologists are natural conversationalists, but that's not always so. We listen, explain, analyze, ask, and write (oh, do we ever write!), but when we need to get people talking, it helps to have some conversation starters on hand. Here are two apps that can help when you run out of things to talk about. ...

  • Visual Feedback for Volume

    ''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 cued her through in an attempt to increase her utterances from short phrases to ...
