Benennen üben mit „iName it“
Smarty Ears, LLC

Eine Übung zum Benennen in verschiedenen semantischen Felder im Haushalt. Bisher leider nur in Englisch und Spanisch. iName It is specifically designed to help individuals with difficulty recalling the names of common items found in the home. Developed by speech-language pathologists, iName It provides users with a systematic way to recall functional words needed for activities of daily living. iName It consists of fifty nouns that are displayed within the context of the rooms where they are typically located, such as bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, etc… Each target word can be elicited by using one of more of the five different types of cues available: phonemic, phase completion, whole word or semantic.

This version of iName It is available in English, Spanish, and Portuguese.

How to Use
iName It is a single-player app specifically designed to be used by a speech-language pathologist or caregiver such as a family member. From the home screen, the user has the option to select “start practice,” “about,” “results,” or “support.” By selecting the “start practice,” the user can choose, or create, a client avatar. Once the client is selected, the screen automatically populates with a choice of five visual scenes. A tap of the screen allows the scene to be selected, and a task bar displays the items to be found within the scene. By selecting one of the items, the available prompts are displayed. If the client doesn’t need to utilize a prompt to name the item, a simple tap of the “got it” button tracks the answer.

Data Collection
iName It tracks data throughout the app. In the “results” area, the user selects the appropriate client avatar. The data report will display indicating the dates the app has been used, overall accuracy without cues, overall accuracy with cues, and which type of cue was most successful. Each session is recorded by date and visual scene name.

The session data report can then be emailed, printed, or exported to the Therapy Report Center for easy progress monitoring and report writing.

iName It is designed to work on word-retrieval secondary to aphasia, and includes 10 target items for each household scene: bedroom, kitchen, living room, bathroom, and garage. Each scene is realistically depicted specifically to assist with visual and sentence completion clues. In addition, the app contains several types of clues or prompts to assist with the verbal recall.

The primary objectives of iName It is to:

Improve word finding of common functional words found in the home and community.
Provide several types of cueing options to meet the needs of a wide range of clients at varying communication levels.

These include printed cues, a definition prompt, a semantic prompt, a phonetic cue (initial sound), and the written word. Each of these prompts was designed using the five types of evidenced based cueing suggested as being useful for word-finding (Hillis, 1993; Nickels, 2002, Wambaugh, 2007). Literature suggests using initial syllable cues and sentence completion cues may trigger motor commands for articulation and be beneficial to individuals with apraxia of speech as well (Love, 1977).

iName It can be used effectively by Speech-Language Pathologists and caregivers working with individuals experiencing word finding difficulties. It is specifically designed to assist people with a wide variety of word-finding deficits. Although the app is designed primarily for use by adults, it can be used with adolescents and children.

Target Audience (s):
This Application is designed for adults, but can also be used with adolescents and children. I Name It targets individuals with word finding difficulties secondary to aphasia. Additionally, it can benefit individuals with apraxia that are assisted by visual and sentence completion cues.

Dysphagia2Go zur Befundsicherung
Smarty Ears, LLC

Eine TherapieAPP für Logopäden, die Ergebnisse der Dysphagie-Diagnostik festhält. Funktionelle Einschränkungen, Diätempfehlungen, Koststufen und weitere wichtige Informationen werden pro Patient in einer Datenbank gespeichert. Dysphagia2Go is an application developed by Speech-Language Pathologists John du Bois and Tiffani Wallace to help you document observations and data relevant to swallowing evaluations. Dysphagia2Go transfers the functions previously filled by paper, computers, and other devices to the more efficient interface of the iPad.

Dysphagia2Go combines philosophies and input from inpatient hospital, outpatient, and home care clinical perspectives to provide a thorough template for dysphagia evaluations. Dysphagia2Go allows you to input information from your chart review or patient interview including lab values, medications, respiratory status, meals, history of pneumonia, etc.

After you have completed the chart review, Dysphagia2Go allows you to use enter information regarding the patient’s oral mech exam with assessment of the lips, teeth, tongue, hyolaryngeal complex, velum, gag reflex and a quick cranial nerve assessment. Record your cervical auscultation results, assessment of vocal quality and speech intelligibility.

Next, the Bedside Swallow Trials section prompts you to look at the patient’s positioning, any at-risk behaviors and then to assess each swallow from dry swallows to regular consisteny foods, assessing anterior maintenance, swallow delay, laryngeal elevation and coughing,

Finally, list your recommendations for food and liquid consistency, exercises per deficit , maintenance techniques including chin tuck, alternations, food/liquid placement. Also include follow-up recommendations such as instrumental examinations, in-service, treatment frequency and re-assessment.

Dysphagia2Go constructs a cumulative, editable report which can be exported, e-mailed, or printed. Saving data within the app allows the user to manage, maintain, and draw upon past reports as necessary.

Dysphagia2Go can be used to:
-Enter chart review, observation, and evaluation text data .
-Maintain caseload information and previous evaluation data for future evaluations.
-Print or share complete reports via e-mail in several formats for continued editing.
-Save reports in exportable PDF format for viewing in PDF-compatible apps.

* Dysphagia2Go relies on security measures that are built-in on the iPad.
** The app can only comply with HIPAA standards if user is protecting iPad data using iPad’s password protection.
*** Smarty Ears, LLC is not responsible for maintaining the confidential information that users have entered in to, or sent from the Dysphagia2Go app.

Fiete Math – Aufgaben für Dyskalkulie
Ahoiii Entertainment UG (haftungsbeschraenkt)

Mit dieser prämierten Mathe-App kann dein Kind spielerisch Zählen lernen und selbständig Rechen-Strategien entwickeln. Basierend auf dem Montessori-Ansatz hilft Fiete Math deinem Kind zu verstehen, was mit Zahlen und Mengen passiert, wenn man sie zerlegt und zusammensetzt.

Gerechnet wird in diesem Mathe-Spiel mit der Schiffsladung von Seemann Fiete, nämlich mit Zahlen-Kisten, die dein Kind anfassen und beliebig zusammenfügen und zerlegen kann. Durch diese Experimentieren mit Zahlen lernt dein Kind wichtige Rechen-Grundlagen, um für den Mathe-Unterricht in der Schule gewappnet zu sein.


Die Aufgaben dieser Rechen-App für Kinder sind eingebettet in wunderschöne Hafen-Szenerien aus aller Welt. Ankommende Schiffe müssen passend beladen werden. Wie Bauklötze können die Kinder die Kisten in diesem Mathe-Spiel zu beliebigen Formen zusammensetzen und wieder zerteilen. Dabei ändern sich die Zahlen auf der Ladung. Dein Kind kann neue Länder & Häfen freispielen, gewinnt Medaillen und größere Schiffe.


Das Zerlegen und Zusammensetzen von Zahlen gehört zu den wichtigsten Grundlagen, um Rechen-Strategien zu entwickeln. Im normalen Schulalltag kommt die intensive Auseinandersetzung mit dem Zahlensystem und den dazugehörigen Rechenstrategien leider oft zu kurz. Kinder, die etwas mehr Zeit benötigen, werden so leicht abgehängt.


Einem Kind, das die Grundlagen der Zahlen noch nicht verstanden hat, hilft es nicht wiederholt Mathe-Aufgaben lösen zu müssen. Deshalb geht diese Mathe-App einen anderen Weg.

Kinder lernen, indem sie spielerisch neue Erfahrungen machen. Mit diesem Rechen-Spiel kann dein Kind durch eigenes Ausprobieren, die Zusammenhänge zwischen Mengen & Zahlen erfahren und begreifen.


• Fiete Math schafft Verständnis für das Zahlensystem, macht 5er und 10er Strukturen nutzbar und zeigt Rechenwege auf.

• Mit den Zahlen in der App kann man wie mit Bauklötzen spielen. Abstrakte Zahlen werden so gegenständlich.

• Es gibt keine Zeitvorgaben. So kann dein Kind die gestellten Aufgaben in seiner eigenen Geschwindigkeit lösen und dabei wichtige Erkenntnisse sammeln.

Diese App ist keine weitere digitale Kopie eines Mathebuchs.
Die Möglichkeiten eines Touch Devices werden hier innovativ genutzt, um das Zahlensystem begreifbar zu machen.

Um die Motivation der Kinder hoch zu halten, haben wir großes Augenmerk darauf gelegt, dass sich diese Mathe App wie ein richtiges Spiel anfühlt. Besonders witzig sind die Tiere, die nach und nach freigespielt werden. So kann dein Kind in Fiete Math auch lustige Dinosaurier, Katzen oder Ferkel mit den Schiffen transportieren:)

Zahlen verschieden zerteilen, Zahlenraum bis 20 kennenlernen

Leichter rechnen mit 5ern, Zehnerübergang, Aufbau des Dezimalsystems

Verdoppeln und Halbieren, Tauschaufgaben, Nachbaraufgaben, gegensinniges bzw. gleichsinniges Verändern

Schöne Päckchen, von einfachen zu schweren Aufgaben, Umkehraufgaben

Schöne Päckchen, von einfachen zu schweren Aufgaben, Umkehraufgaben

Mundmotorik mit dem Smart Oral Motor
Smarty Ears, LLC

„We have used this app with children between the ages of 5 and 10 with diagnoses of apraxia, articulation disorders and autism. The children we have used the app with were more willing to complete the oral motor exercise routine when using the app versus just following the Speech Therapist’s instructions.“ Bridging Apps.com

Oral motor skills refer to the skills needed for basic functions such as eating and speaking. The muscles in the mouth, jaw, lips and tongue are responsible for smiling, facial expressions, and even swallowing. We know that in order to practice these skills effectively, children need to follow basic directions involving movements of the muscles in their mouths.
Children with Apraxia of Speech, Down syndrome or craniofacial anomalies many times experience difficulties with their oral motor skills.

Smart Oral Motor is a fun and engaging application for children who need a little more entertaining when practicing their oral motor skills. Clever, the duck, provides auditory and visual cues for practicing several oral motor exercises such as:
-Puckering lips
-Making an “o” with the mouth
-Sending a kiss
-Moving tongue to sides
-Puffing cheeks
-Touching cheeks using the tongue
-Moving the tongue up and down

This application includes a total of 15 oral motor exercises, auditory information and fun animations. Parents and therapists have the ability to adjust the number of repetitions per movement as they please.

This application does not replace the need for a full evaluation by a licensed professional such as an occupational therapist or a speech therapist. Therapists will evaluate and provide full guidance on how to best use this application. If parents are working with their therapists in trying to develop a home program for their child, this can be one very user friendly and engaging resource.

3D Speech-Trainer: Artikulation auf Englisch
Smarty Ears, LLC

Speech Trainer 3-D is a unique application created specifically to help individuals with speech-sound disorders and English language learners. Speech Trainer 3-D provides an animated video model for both consonants and vowel sounds. With both a side and front view, Speech Trainer 3-D provides 32 English language sounds: 23 consonants and 8 vowels. Designed by a certified speech-language pathologist, Speech Trainer 3-D is perfect for those individuals struggling with sound production and for use by SLPs, special educators, and parents alike.
Speech Trainer 3-D was created to be used as a therapy tool to assist individuals in correctly producing target sounds. Speech Trainer incorporates both an animated video of the speech sound as well as a systematic breakdown for describing the movements necessary for each sound. Both video modeling and video prompting are useful for many individuals when learning new skills1.
In addition to the animated video model, Speech Trainer 3-D uses the camera function built into the iPad 2 and higher to allow the learner to see a side-by-side picture of the model and his or her own face making the sound. Incorporating the built-in camera allows the professional to utilize both a visual and a tactile prompt for the client, which may in turn, encourage longer productions and improve the muscle coordination needed for speech2.
How to Use
Speech Trainer 3-D is designed to be used individually or in group practice. Once the app is loaded, the user can choose whether to work on consonants or vowels. When a phoneme type has been selected, the app will open with a phoneme bar along the top of the page and the side-view of a model of the speech mechanism. For consonants, the user can simply slide the selection bar sideways to access all of the consonant sounds. When the phoneme is selected, a “play” arrow is tapped and the video model moves while the sound is produced. To hear the systematic breakdown of movements, a double “fast-forward” arrow is pushed. A square will surround the area being discussed. Subsequent taps on the double arrow will move to the next prompt.
The app opens in a default side-view; however, a frontal view is available. In this view, the speech-mechanism model is replaced with a person modeling the sounds. The app also provides an audio example of 2-4 words for each sound.
The iPad camera is activated when the iPad is rotated to the landscape position. At that time, the user will see their image in the camera beside the avatar. The user will then be able to use the video modeling to make encourage accurate production of sounds.

Speech Trainer 3-D allows the user to specify which sound in the English language to target. Transitioning between multiple sounds is easily accomplished with the tap of a button. Changing from the side medical model of the speech mechanism to the mirror like human model is done with a quick tap. Finally, adding a self-monitoring component is encouraged by simply rotating the iPad and engaging the iPad’s built-in camera.

•Full color medical model of the speech mechanism
•Systematic breakdown of each phoneme with video
•32 English phonemes: 23 consonants and 8 vowels
•Both side and frontal views for demonstrating the sound
•Built-in camera feature to encourage self-monitoring

Speech Trainer 3D demonstrates the sounds in two views: Front and Side View. Speech Trainer uses the International Phonetics Alphabet, which is the best way to represent each sound.
Speech Trainer has 30 sounds represented; 23 consonants and 7 vowels.
