Speech Assessment and Response iPads

My students need two iPads, the Big Grip case and stands so I can administer assessments digitally. I need one iPad for the students and one for the clinician to administer the test and record responses.

My Students

I am a Speech-Language Pathologist for a elementary school. I teach students from preschool age through 5th grade in regular and special education classes. I have students with hearing impairments, orthopedic impairments, learning disabilities, and speech and language disorders. Two iPads would allow me to administer my assessments digitally.

Many of my students have orthopedic impairment, physical and health impairments, hearing impairments, multiple disabilities, and speech and language disorders.

My students are highly motivated by technology, and as a speech pathologist, I use their love of technology to facilitate personal interactions. Being able to administer my assessments with the iPad will make it easier for my students to respond to the test items.

My Project

My students need two iPads, the Big Grip case and stands so I can administer assessments digitally. My students have special needs and Assessing them to determine what their speech needs are can be challenging. The ability to administer an speech assessment with an iPad is the perfect way to get students motivated and give them the opportunity to respond with ease.

Two iPad's would benefit my students and address all areas of speech and language skills including articulation, vocabulary development, social skills, fluency, comprehension, etc

My students will use an iPad to view test items while the Clinician uses her iPad to record responses. The 'Big Grip' cases would display the tests at the perfect angle for my students to view the test items and for me to record my responses. I have already been able to bring technology into my therapy sessions It would be an amazing advantage for my students to integrate technology it into my Assessments.
