Abstract:

SpeechPrompts will be an application for Apple iOS devices (iPad, iPhone, iTouch) for use by special education professionals and other caregivers (e.g., special educators, paraprofessionals, SLPs, counselors, and parents) working with students in kindergarten through grade 12 who exhibit prosodic speech challenges, including students with ASD and students with apraxia of speech, specific language disorders, hearing impairment, and intellectual disability (e.g., Down syndrome). A variety of features and therapeutic exercises will help educators guide improvement in students' prosodic voice quality, thereby strengthening their communication and social skills and thus capacity for integration in academic, recreational, vocational and community settings.
