Using Technology to our Advantage in Speech-language Pathology

Founders Hall Auditorium

Brooklyn Heights, NY 11201

Many great apps were developed specifically for speech and language interventions, but countless treasures in the App Store were designed for other purposes and can be applied creatively to engage students and clients in therapy. This workshop will cover a selection of great “dedicated” apps for speech and language therapy and models of “repurposing” apps for therapeutic activities. Frameworks for evaluating both dedicated and repurposed apps for the purpose of targeting clinical objectives will be presented, with a specific focus on creation tools that tap language processes. Apps related to day-to-day productivity and strategies for finding apps will also be reviewed. A guided practice period will allow participants to collaborate and clarify their questions.
