We’re getting ready to kick off 2015, but it would be a shame to ignore all the great apps we SLPs used in 2014. To celebrate, YappGuru.com is hosting an “Expert Linky Party” (click to see details) with a great group of app review bloggers from around the world. We’re all sharing our top 10 apps we’ve used and recommended in 2014. This is a brief compilation of the ones I personally have been using and showing the most at work and in presentations over the past year, in no particular order…

STAC

Oh hey – I’m back! I have been meaning to review this app for months. I’m *finally* getting around to it and quite excited to share. After all, it’s a pretty rare tool – not only is it an assessment app, but it’s for adults AND it’s fully standardized. As far as I’m aware, it’s the only one of it’s kind.

App: Standardized Touchscreen Assessment of Cognition (STAC)

What It Is: An app for standardized assessment of cognitive/linguistic function in adults. By Cognitive Innovations.

Conversation TherAppy

Oh, my. Has it really been over six months since I’ve done an app review? Time to get back on track! Update on me: I’ve switched from acute inpatient to a rehab facility (rehab, SNF, LTC). There are things I miss about acute, but I am excited about the new position, especially being able to use apps in therapy again! In other words, hopefully you’ll be seeing more of me. 🙂 The number one app I’ve used so far is Conversation TherAppy. The app has been out for a number of months now, but I’ve used it so much in the past two weeks that it’s impossible NOT to share about it. (And I even found a few times to use it in acute, so I’ll share about that, too.)

App: Conversation TherAppy

What It Is: An app for stimulating conversation by Tactus Therapy.

It’s also one of the few kids’ apps available on Google Play to measure up to what is available on iOS, in my oh-so-humble opinion. 🙂

App: Dr. Panda’s Veggie Garden (Android) (Apple) (Amazon)

What It Is: An app for growing fruits and veggies in an interactive garden by TribePlay.
