You may be a “vintage” SLP if …..

* a patient’s grandmother says “I played with that toy when I was a child” (ummm… yes I am still using my Fisher Price Mini Bus, circa 1969)

* a patient’s father states “that’s the year I was born” (ummm…. yeah I’m still using the Illco Sesame Street House I bought while in grad school in 1988)

* you remember the smell and color of mimeograph handouts

* you “laminated” with clear contact paper

* you photocopied PCS symbols and colored them with map pencils because Boardmaker had not been invented yet (or you remember the even older Bliss symbols)

* you had to use a pay phone to find out why the Early Intervention office had “paged” you because cell phones had not been invented yet

* you had to figure out how to get to EI home visits soley based on a map and the Resource Coordinator’s handwritten directions (nope. GPS and the Internet weren’t available back in the early part of my career either)

* there was no e-mail

* there was no internet

* you had materials from Communication Skillbuilders

* there was no Super Duper

* you were proud of the artic cards you made with magazine pictures or stickers on index cards.

* there was no Teachers Pay Teachers

* IEPs and IFSPs were written by hand

* you used an external mic to record your voice on a child’s new Dynavox 2c because no 3 year old should have to have a robotic voice

* you felt super high tech with your Apple 2c and dot matrix printer that was so loud your roommate left when you printed

* you remember the huge Peabody cards in the metal box

* you remember the horrid SICD test in the tackle box (ummm…. yeah many of those items were a choking hazard for infants & toddlers)

* you started a Yahoo listserve as a way to distribute info to other therapists

* you are excited to find your “speechie tribe” in the Boomer SLPs group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1723356147877821/1785606184986150

{New Favorite Therapy Toy & Aided Language Stimulation} The Playskool Learnimals Color Me Hungry Hippo – free printable included

image

.

{New Favorite Therapy Toy & Aided Language Stimulation} The Playskool Learnimals Color Me Hungry Hippo is my new favorite therapy toy! I had several patients squeal and giggle with delight at the sight of a jumbo version of the character they know from the popular Hungry Hungry Hippos kids game. One adorable articulation patient said “Is dat Hunwee Hunwee Hippo?” in the most astonished voice…. lol! What’s not to love about a toy that you can feed, his belly lights up to match the color of the item inserted and you learn about colors, shapes, food and counting? This new BFF also enticed one of my youngest patients to say “eat”, “mmm” & “yum” (a huge deal for this kiddo). For my AAC users and patients that I use symbol supported language stimulation as visual supports to expand verbal utterances, I made printable symbols and added him to several of my AAC apps. Besides those early concepts, also lots of opportunities for core vocabulary (today I targeted eat, hungry, in, open, more, again, full and done but already have others in mind).

I bought mine for $18.09 with free shipping through Amazon Prime (https://www.amazon.com/Playskool-Learnimals-Color-Hungry-Hippo/dp/B00C3WXKQ4). Don’t think he’s available in stores anymore but definitely worth also looking for at thrift shops and garage sales.

Here is a PDF of the symbols that I made to go with it:

{App Review & Giveaway} What’s the Pic Articulation by HomeSpeechHome

image

.

{App Review & Giveaway} What’s the Pic Articulation by HomeSpeechHome (https://appsto.re/us/iZ3Aeb.i, iOS Universal, $4.99). See details below for how to enter to win a code for this SLP-designed app. I have 1 iOS app code to giveaway.

A picture is displayed with a varied number of times the player must say it. Each time the word is said, a star lights up. Once all the stars are lit, a sticker is removed from the hidden picture with a fun sound effect, and players try to guess what it is before it is completely uncovered! Hidden pictures are covered with colorful stickers (8 different types each with their own fun, reinforcing sound effect as they are removed). Spelling hints are available when a player is having trouble guessing the hidden picture. Three different animated reward screens are earned upon guessing or uncovering the hidden picture.

.

Get a great overview of the app in this video:

.

Here’s what I love about this unique new app:

* how well it responds to voice output.
* the therapist is responsible for scoring the accuracy of each production.
* includes every phoneme, blends and vocalic r in every position of words. It’s great that each blend and type of vocalic r is listed separately. {Tip: Unless you have plenty of unused space on your iPad, I would suggest just downloading the sounds as you need them. The app developer indicated that it would take up to 1 GB of space to have everything downloaded at the same time.}
* real photos for the target word & the hidden picture.
* can set up multiple users and customized with a name and picture or emoji avatar. Can use individually or in a group. The app automatically advances turns among the players. The app remembers the sound a player worked on in the last session.
* data is collected on each player and can be e-mailed.
* guessing the hidden picture before it is uncovered is a fun way to also address inferencing and part-to-whole goals.
* everything is included. No in-app purchases or ads.

Wishes for a future app update: 

The app is GREAT as it is and a bargain for the price but I have given the following suggestions to the app developer that would make it even better if they plan to update it in the future:

* After downloading a sound, it would be nice to be able to further customize the list for a particular child. For example, for some patients I might want to exclude multisyllabic words or words with a much harder phoneme. Or I might want to only include challenging words for kids further along in the therapy process.

* It would also be nice to know how many words are included when you select a sound, have a countdown and to be able to set how many repetitions you want for each word (with the option to have it randomized like it currently appears to be)

* It would be nice to be able to import a pic from the camera roll in addition to the options of selecting an avatar and taking a pic. I have several patients who have a favorite character that they would be highly motivated to use as an avatar. I ended up displaying a picture on another iPad and taking a picture of it within this app.

* It would be great to have the option of customizing the hidden picture. It would be highly motivating for a child to uncover a pic of their favorite character, toy, etc.

* It would be nice to have the app rotate when you flip the iPad. Due to the configuration in my treatment room I’m almost always seated to the right of the patient. I always use my iPad in landscape orientation with the home button on the right. I do that so I am both in charge of the home button & since most SLP scoring is on that side. The app is currently upside down when my iPad is my favorite position.

Research comparing Autism treatment approaches

image

.

Interesting research comparing Autism treatment approaches. Helpful info in the summary at the end:

* If the child is verbal, has the ability to imitate, has limited social communication, and displays inappropriate or problematic behaviors, Pivotal Response Training may be a promising option for parent training intervention since it encompasses a wide range of target skills.

* If the child has a lack of eye contact and joint attention skills, makes little to no attempts to initiate social interactions, and limited vocabulary, Hanen’s More Than Words may be the best intervention choice since it can accommodate both nonverbal and verbal children with ASD.

* If the child is verbal with initial imitative skills, low MLUs, and significant deficits in expressive language and social initiation skills, Milieu Teaching is a viable option for parent training intervention.

* If the child is has little to no spontaneous speech but has imitative skills, Modified Incidental Teaching Sessions are appropriate choices for intervention.

It does a nice job of looking at other factors to consider (cost, time, preferences of parents and individuals with ASD, availability of training, etc.) when choosing approaches.

See screenshots of key elements in each approach in the comments on this post on my OMazing Kids page:

https://repositories.lib.utexas.edu/bitstream/handle/2152/26277/SISAVATH-MASTERSREPORT-2014.pdf?sequence=1

[Note: There are many other Autism treatment approaches (ex: DIR Floortime, TEACCH, ABA Verbal Behavior, etc…) in addition to the ones included in this research. As a SLP, I pick and choose elements based on a particular patient’s needs and what skills I am trying to teach.]

{App Review} Dr. Panda Bath Time

{App Review} Dr. Panda Bath Time
.

I was thrilled to have the opportunity to review the newest app from Dr. Panda for  Technology in Education /Appymall! I have several of this developer’s apps and use them almost everyday in OMazing Kids speech therapy.

Here’s what I love about this new app:

  • There is a knock at the door but it doesn’t open to reveal which character is coming in until you tap it. This is fun to build anticipation. The character waves “hi” as they enter.
  • The app has an intuitive interface (easy to figure out where to tap and what to do). The arrows on the right and left sides of the screen lend themselves well to working on that basic concept as you chose which direction to go.
  • Extra large characters & items. This is great for kids with fine motor delays or visual impairment. It also made it easier to point out details such as body parts, bath toys, hygiene tools, etc. as I used this app to target speech and language goals.
  •  I love the realistic feel of the characters in this app (in comparison to the flat sticker-like feel of characters in the Dr. Panda School and Dr. Panda Farm apps). The app includes 2 boy characters (Dr. Panda & Puppy) and 2 girl characters (Monkey & Kitty).
  • A symbol or two appear in the top right hand corner of the screen to tell you what that character needs. There are often other clues such as the character being dirty, wiping off their clothes, saying “Eww”, etc. This is great to work on perspective taking and inferencing. When 2 symbols appear, it’s a great opportunity to talk about what the character should do “first” and then “next”.
  • There are 7 areas in the app (door/entry area, closet, toilet, sink, laundry, bathtub, shower)
  • After using the toilet, the app automatically takes the character to wash their hands at a close up view of the sink.
  • The sink area is also for brushing teeth and in that mode has a manual toothbrush, electric toothbrush, toothpaste, mouthwash, spray cologne & a comb.
  • The shower has hot & cold water and the character reacts if it’s too hot or too cold. I also liked being able to remove the shower sprayer to spray all over the character.
  •  The bathtub has a scuba mask and snorkel. So cute to get to make the character go under the water! I also love the toy (sometimes a boat & sometimes a rubber duck)
  • The closet has 5 outfit choices for the boys and 5 outfit choices for the girls.
  • A checkmark appears over the symbol in the top right corner when that task has been successfully completed. I immediately thought of my patients who use a visual schedule and how it would be fun to create a visual schedule to go along with this app.
  • When all the tasks have been completed and the character has been dressed, they go back to the doorway area. The door opens and they pause in the doorway. This provides the opportunity to tell the character “bye bye” before you tap them and they say “bye” as the leave. This is followed by a new character knocking on the door and a new series of opportunities appearing. The app appears to be randomized which makes for lots of fun options each time you use it.
  • The app has lots of opportunities for core vocabulary with AAC users (of course this app would have to be on a separate iPad from their “talker”). There are also tons of opportunities for other vocabulary, spatial concepts, adjectives, verbs, etc…. That’s why I love using apps like this in therapy!
  • The parent area is secured and contains options to easily toggle off/on the background music and sound effects separately from each other and to toggle off the promotion screen (when “on” it shows a pic of one of their other apps on the home screen. I personally toggle this off to prevent patients from becoming distracted). These features all make it sensory-friendly & special-needs friendly.
  • One of the most AWESOME features throughout the app is that the character’s eye gaze follows items as you move them on the screen. They even look up towards the checkmark as it’s added to a completed task. If you try to tap on an area that doesn’t make sense (such as the closet to get dressed while the character is still dirty), the character makes a surprised facial expression and looks up towards the symbol area to remind us what we still need to do. Most of my patients have Autism and often don’t tune it and follow like that so it will be super cool to see if this skill being modeled in an app leads to an increase in those skills as I infuse this app into their therapy.

Wishes for a future app update:

  • make it possible to rotate a character in the shower so you can wash their back.
  • add the hot/cold reaction to the bathtub like is currently seen in the shower.
  • add a few more outfit/clothing options. The drawers at the bottom open so that would be a good place to have extra outfits. Additional outfits could also be added by having separate choices for each character and by having additional choices rotate through as the app randomizes.
  • depict the characters spitting out the mouthwash by adding a swishing and spitting sound effect and action. I had one patient who thought the characters were drinking it (eek!)

Update: Here are some symbols I made to use with the app. I’m planning on using them both as PECS symbols and as visual schedule symbols depending on the child I’m working with:

{Free App Alert} All of the apps from STEP BY STEP are currently free

image

.

{Free App Alert} All of the apps from STEP BY STEP are currently FREE for a limited time so grab them quickly! Get links on this post: http://bit.ly/2bWPMhd

 

I downloaded them all, tried them out and especially appreciate all the settings options that make these apps “sensory friendly” and “special needs friendly”.

The developer’s Facebook page indicates “in the coming weeks, another 8 apps will be launched (all approved by Apple already) and then we’ll start working on Android versions.” No indication as to whether or not they will also be free but I’ll keep my eyes out for them.

I left 3 installed on my therapy iPad based on goals I’m addressing with current patients. The “Same Same” app is nice for face up identical matching. I have several patients who get frustrated with the “memory” aspect of most memory match games so face up matching is a nice place to start. “Place in Groups” & “Sort by Kind” are good for categorization.
