In a research report regarding our Speech Tablets for Apraxia Program (formerly known as iPads for Apraxia), parents and therapists reported positive perceptions of and experiences with the iPad technology at home and during speech therapy. Children reportedly experienced excitement, motivation, immediacy, reduced frustration, and the ability to practice speech outside of therapy.
In a world of increased technology, we identified an opportunity to connect children in need with functional speech tools to help them reach their highest communication potential. Parents and speech therapists can enhance speech practice at home and across environments when using a speech tablet. Additionally, children who are still struggling to be understood can utilize iPads as an augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) tool.
Due to the ever changing nature of technology, new apps are always available. Apraxia Kids has partnered with Penn State Health to share and distribute the Speech and Language Apps guide published by the Department of Behavior and Developmental Pediatrics at Penn State Hershey Medical Center. Apraxia Kids does not endorse any specific apps nor is this list all-inclusive. The directory is meant only to be a guide/resource.
