The Test of Articulation and Phonology ( iTAP) is the next generation of speech assessments. It combines the flexibility and power of the iPad with research to give speech-language-pathologists a hassle free, efficient and affordable assessment tool unlike any other. The iTAP was standardized on 438 children ages 3;0 to 10;11 in Texas.

The ITAP aids in obtaining a complete picture of a client’s overall speech sound abilities by assessing and analyzing errors according to both articulation and phonology.
It is the first and only test to account for multiple occurrences of sounds in each position of a word and for production of longer multisyllabic words independently.
The result is 63 words in English that test each phoneme of each language in every allowable word position. The sounds occur on the test up to 6 times in a given position. The frequency of occurrence is consistent with the frequency of occurrence of the sounds in the language.
A second efficiency that was included in the iTAP that makes it stand apart from other speech assessment tools, is a behind-the-scenes calculator. The evaluator marks errors on the screen as they are made and those errors are calculated by type and category (e.g. phonological process) behind the scenes. At the end of the assessment (or part-way through if you have to abandon administration), a detailed report is emailed to you that contains the number and types of errors, along with percentages of possible occurrences of those errors.

Disappointing customer relations

I purchased this app in Feb. 2020. I never received notification that this app would require a subscription. I went to administer with a student today and couldn’t even use it beyond the chicken so I couldn’t even get the information I needed. Poorly executed by this company.

No longer worth money

This was ok for informal evaluation on students, but now that it is a monthly subscription it is not worth it. I also think it is unfair to those who purchased the original app. Just give the Goldman Fristoe or Arizona!

They retracted what I had already purchased... don’t buy

I purchased this as an app to use unlimited in 2017 and paid $54.99. They changed it to a subscription without any notification. I want a refund. This is not what I purchased. I wouldn’t have purchased if it was subscription. Super disappointed with what they did and I love Smarty Ears but this was not cool.
