Apps have become an integral part of speech therapy these days. Being able to bust out your tablet and open up an app that can help you address your student’s goals for a session is not only time and space saving, but sanity saving. Apps can be engaging, help target specific areas, and clean up is a breeze. We always want to know what apps are best? Which ones are being used the most? So, when I met the folks from YappGuru at ASHA I knew I had to join their site! Now, it’s time for their March Madness contest and I’m SO excited!
YappGuru is a site that hosts app reviews. They have ‘app experts’ who post reviews of different apps. When you go YappGuru, you will be able to see all the apps that people have reviewed and their overall ratings. I really like how the ‘experts’ are professionals working across different settings, with different populations. It really helps to see what different professionals think. You can also vote apps up or down.
I joined YappGuru, as an Expert, after ASHA. Since then, I have started to complete some reviews of apps I have used. During the month of March, YappGuru is hosting a fun little contest! Just head over to my Expert profile and see which apps I have reviewed so far. I am planning on doing more be sure to check back.
