Announcing the Apple Apps for SLPs Program at

An app is computer software that helps people perform certain tasks on a computer or other devices.  Apps contrast with application software that manages and integrates the computer itself.   The app directly helps the user to perform specific task or activities. Web applications — or web apps — combine the power of the Internet with the simplicity of Multi-Touch technology.


Apple apps are web applications that,  "..combine the power of the internet with the simplicity of Multi-Touch technology. " 1   These apps can be downloaded directly to an iPhone, iPod or iPad or directly to a computer using iTunes.  The apps may be free or available at a charge. The use of apps ranges from simple organization, to basic drill and practice, to full AAC.   The use of apple apps is growing at a phenomenal rate. 


The staff at are assisting Amanda Mehdiyoun, a graduate student in Communication Disorders at the University of  Massachusetts Amherst in her project to review and discuss various apps that may be beneficial for speech/language therapy and for people with communication disorders.  As part of this program we will sponsor the following:


· will be sponsoring a series of SLP Roundtables to discuss the use of apps for Apple devices online using videoconferencing.    We will conduct 60-minute online discussion groups on three successive Fridays: 2/25/11 at 1 pm est;  3/4/11 at 2 pm est; and  3/11/11 noon est . 

· will provide a forum/blog on the apps topic that will allow a discussion and idea exchange for SLPs working with both pediatric and adult clients.

· welcomes you to share your ideas on the apps topic with the SLP world by sending reviews, experiences or opinions about apps or apps for us to review to .

There is no charge for participation. See the procedures for participating in the column to the left.
