Having recently moved offices and lifted heavy boxes full of paper resources, I found myself longing for a paperless clinic. An email from Smarty Ears mentioning the release of their new iTAP app (Test of Articulation and Phonology for iPad) couldn’t have come at a better time. I decided to review this app and to ask some of my speech kids to rate it as well.
iTAP works very much like most paper articulation tests: the child names a series of pictures containing specific phonemes and consonant clusters in all positions in single words. The app targets 64 phonemes and consonant clusters in all positions across 58 words and includes a multisyllable probe at the end.
