School may be out for the summer, but we have been working on some exciting new features to help school-based Speech-Language Pathologists. A survey by ASHA found that the median caseload of a school-based SLP (in the USA) was 47 students. Without adequate support, managing such a large number of students in an app can be difficult. Speech Cards is a very versatile iOS app as it can be customized to suit the goals of a wide range of students. We are very excited to share with you, the new features of Speech Cards version 1.1.2, designed to help school-based SLPs.
Speech Cards now supports an unlimited number of students. This will enable you to keep the scores and recordings for all your students in the app, without having to delete. Store reports for your all your past, current and future students.
Save time looking for students with the new Search feature. Simply tap in the search box and start typing the name of a student. Results appear instantly. Tap on a search result to select the student. Less waiting and start sessions sooner with Search.
Organized Student List
Find the student you are looking for with the help of the organized Student List. The names of students are organized into alphabetical sections. Last Names are displayed in bold font to help you visually process the list.
Use the new alphabetical index to quickly navigate from one section to another. For example, if you are currently looking at the students in section “A”, tap on the “Y” index to quickly jump down to section “Y”.
Speech Cards has had support for group sessions since the first version. We’ve made group sessions better by removing the limits on how many students can be added to a group session. Speech Cards now supports any size of group you may have.
Pricing and Availability
Speech Cards 1.1.2 will be available for the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch, exclusively through the Apple App Store. The planned release date for version 1.1.2 is the week of July 1, 2013. The price for the Professional version is $9.99 USD (or equivalent in other currencies). We are proud to be participating in the Apple Volume Purchase Program, which enables educational institutions to purchase our apps at a discount. We also offer a Lite version, so you may try Speech Cards for free.
