Have you Heard? APPS Sale Ends May 9th!!!!!

In honor of Better Speech and Hearing Month, Super Duper Inc. is putting all of their "Fun Deck" apps on sale for $1.99 until May 9th!!!! Most of these apps are usually $3.99-$5.99 and the "card deck" version of these are usually $10.95. If you have access to iPod Touch, iPhone, or iPad, these apps are digital versions of several "Fun Decks" that we use in the speech room and with our social thinking groups. Now, in APP form, they are more cost effective (and let's face it, we are all on tight budgets these days)!! Here is a list of Apps that work for various groups of students at ANY age level! I have divided the apps by how they can be used in speech therapy or in social thinking groups. Also, I have added a group that would work well as "writing prompts" that might be useful in a speech room, resource, inclusion, or classroom setting. Follow this link for the sale list if you are interested!  

Articulation Therapy--For students who are beginning to practice their sounds at the SENTENCE level and beyond, these Apps are great for carry-over of skills.

Many of these products have video tutorials online if you follow the link to Super Duper (this is where I get many of my own ideas). I don't work for Super Duper or their promotions team and I am not receiving any payment or merchandise for promoting their products; but I have hands on experience with many of their products, and I'm always looking for new ways to keep our students motivated to achieve their communication goals! 

Hope you can add to your toolbox!
