I have something exciting for us today! Since I’m breaking in my new Ipad I’ve been trying out lots of new apps. This week Smarty Ears gifted me an app for their articulation application “Articulate It” to test out and review. The good news is they also gave me 2 TO GIVE AWAY FOR YOU!!! I have several Smarty Ears apps but was new to Articulate It. Check it out in the Itunes store HERE. Best Features +Covers every phoneme +Covers phonological processes + Can use it in groups easily – either one turn or multiple attempts for each child. +Tracks data in detail + Recordings taken for sounds are saved into the data. This app has everything your articulation cards have and more! The pictures are clear and appropriate. It was easy for me to set up before the kids arrived. I just clicked to pick which kids to add to the group session, and then added the target sounds for each child. You can also take notes at any point during the session, which might come in handy when working in groups. I like knowing that it’s an app that I can use with my entire caseload (age 3-13) making it worth the money. I really appreciated the tutorial included within the app because I knew after watching it that I wasn’t missing any great features because I didn’t know how to work it! The only thing this app is lacking, is some bumped up entertainment value and the ability to work at the sentence level. The kids got bored after one or two sessions. The Ipad is certainly more entertaining than my traditional articulation cards, but the newness wore off pretty quickly. Future updates might include some time of reward/game for completing a certain amount of trials (a game with their sound incorporated would be even better!) Adding a feature that turns the target words to target sentences would be desirable as well! Although any savvy SLP is going to be able to quickly create those sentences during therapy. This is a great app that I would recommend for all SLP’s and even parents who wish to work on carryover of skills at home. The price is right to have every articulation/phonology card deck into one app on the ipad. In the end, having an app that tracks great data, and includes Articulation AND Phonology in a single app, outweighs any cons I could think of! So here comes the exciting part. To WIN A COPY OF THIS APP here is what you need to do. You need to… 1. Become a Facebook follower of Speech Room News AND 2. Become a blog follower (you can find both of those on the right hand side of this page.) Leave a comment on this page with your name and email! I will use Random.org to generate 2 winners one week from today! Goodluck!

I am always looking for was to use technology in my therapy. Using the iPad has brought back excitement back to my speech room for both me and my students. I have been eyeing this app for a while, but didn’t want to fork over my own money for it. Here’s hoping I don’t have to 🙂
I love you blog. Thanks for sharing all the great ideas.
I just found your blog in October, and have been a loyal follower since. You have fantastic ideas! I too, got an ipad for Christmas and am very excited to use it therapy.
I love your blog and all of your great ideas! Keep up the good work and hopefully I can win the new app 🙂
Love your blog….you have great ideas!!!
Just found your blog and I’m in love! I would love to win this app!
I am a bit of an app problem! I have had to institute a strict app budget. I have just about every speech app out there and many more education apps that I use for therapy. I have to say that up until the recent update Articulate It was my 3rd to 4th favorite articulation app. However today it became my FAVORITE! The new update is awesome! I used it today with my artic groups. I was able to set up each person with their phonemes, positions, and level (word/sentence). I was even able to change in the middle of therapy when I realized one of my students was not quite ready for sentence level!
I absolutely love your blog and ideas. I have everyone of my friends/teachers asking for “french fry” boxes when they go on fast food runs.
Thank you for the great ideas and connections!

I appreciate it so much!
