As a thank you to everyone, I am setting up my first rafflecopter giveaway. Not being sure how to begin, I contacted Pocket SLP, and they graciously gave me a code to give away Pocket Pairs, an app that targets 12 common phonological processes. There are modes for receptive and expressive activities. When playing the "Receptive Mode," students need to choose the picture in the pair that uses their targeted speech sounds. Students are prompted to listen for their sound, then tap the picture that has the targeted sound. If correct, a check appears on the picture; if incorrect, an X appears.
In "Expressive Mode," the students are prompted to say both targeted words. There are buttons for the student, parent, or therapist to use to track correct, approximate and incorrect responses. Responses can also be recorded.
At the end of your session, you can click on the pencil to get your results. Correct and incorrect responses are shown with percentages and examples of targeted words. There is also a section for therapist comments. I found this tool to be useful when showing the students how they did. Since I have only had a day to use the app, I have not shared data with parents yet, but I really like the email and print options. The data is shared in a table format with a written explanation, and gives suggestions for homework. There is also room for the parent to comment as well. This feature should definitely get the parents involved!
The giveaway runs today through midnight on Sunday. Monday I will choose the winner. Thanks again to everyone for your support! It has been wonderful getting to know many of you, and I hope that you enjoy stopping by!
