Apps that address phonological processes are somewhat rare, so I was excited when SLP TechTools asked if I would review this app! Please feel free to comment below and let me know how this compares to any other phono apps you’ve used!
I am branching out a little with this review, since LessonPix is an online tool not an app; however, I’m completely convinced that it will still be worth my readers’ time! Obviously, I love what tablets and phones can do in therapy–after all, I do devote hours each week to evaluating apps and sharing them with others. But I readily admit that sometimes an app just won’t do it. Sometimes an app isn’t available for a particular skill, or sometimes using a tablet/phone isn’t appropriate with a particular client, or sometimes it’s important that a different medium be used (e.g. when focusing on skills that require manipulation of a physical object). And sometimes *gasp* there is an app that could address a skill appropriately, but it’s not the best way to address it. Shocking, right? Of course not, because you are all wonderful critical thinkers who long ago realized that the iPad is an awesome tool, not a panacea. That said, the unfortunate thing about many non-app activities is how time-consuming lesson planning/preparing can become. Hopefully this review will help you make the process more efficient. Oh…and did I forget to mention there is a GIVEAWAY accompanying this review?? 😉 See the giveaway post for details on how to enter to win.
