I have decided to make my GeekSLP Tv #6 about an app that I have created: The Sunny Articulation Test. This is by far the most fun and useful app in the app store, not only because it is very comprehensive but also because it places our current paper and pencil materials at a place to be more creative. The Sunny Articulation Test does not (yet) replace the paper and pencil tests for those who need standard score in order to determine eligibility for special education services in the public school. However it can be a replacement for those who do not need it.
Many people asked me about the need to have Sunny Articulation Test standardized: here is my take on it. The question goes back to you; why do we need SS? For eligibility. The SS by itself does not tell us what errors the child is making, does not tell us which errors independently are age appropriate, and does not draw any other information regarding the student’s articulation skills, right?
Speech Therapists care about what is behind the SS, we care about the patterns in speech errors. Sunny Articulation Test, analyses those patterns. Sunny makes it easier for us to identify patterns in speech errors. I think I would probably have to record another podcast runny a few experiments, and case studies. For now, I would love to hear what you guys think of my podcast.
I may get back on GeekSLP #7 on Web 2.0 and Social Media.
