I am thankful for the generous donation and the opportunity to be one of the SLPs in JCPS to use one of the iPads. I did not have a personal iPad or tablet to use, so this has been great! Some of the students on my caseload are Deaf and the iPad has made it easy to look up images to accompany vocabulary words. I have also downloaded some free language and articulation apps to use in therapy sessions. Some of the free apps that I have used are: Abitalk Reading Comprehension; Super Duper WH Questions; Category Therapy Lite; Cardstack Sentences; Picture Dictionary; Describe It To Me. The Tech Tuesday Blog has also provided ideas of how to use the iPad and free apps to try out. Technology adds that extra incentive in therapy sessions for students. I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to use the iPad this year and I hope to have the opportunity next year as well.
