As a school-based speech language pathologist, an area of concern and focus is providing the optimal service delivery to fit the varied needs of different students with speech or language impairment. The focus of this proposal is to address the needs of students who demonstrate difficulty with speech sound production as quickly and effectively as possible. To address the issue, 4 iPad minis with speech apps will be used by students in a speech resource setting and in their general education classrooms. The students will be trained to judge their own sound production—whether correct or incorrect–at each level (word, phrase, reading, conversation) during frequent, brief and intense individual “therapy bursts” of specially designed instruction.
