The iPhone®, iPod touch® and the iPad® are becoming widely used as therapy tools. This article will introduce the devices’ basic features that can be used by speech-language pathologists (SLPs) to support service delivery in schools, report the results of a survey addressing current use and implementation of the devices in the school setting, introduce basic concepts behind applications for speech and language therapy, and guide SLPs when choosing accessories for the devices that will be used for therapy. The iDevices have made the use of technology within the field of speech pathology affordable, convenient, and user-friendly, key features for the adoption of any new tool.
