Great tool

This app is a great tool for progress monitoring. The data collected makes progress notes and IEPs a breeze to update. My kids love anything on the iPad and I do not feel guilty giving them more screen time with Smarty Ears apps.

Great app for baseline and follow up data

I LOOOVE this app. I work at a school that is VERY rigorous with kindergarteners expected to read quite well before entering first grade. As we SLP's know, a lot of our articulation kiddos with phonological orders have difficulty with phonological awareness. The app is very easy to use and I love the counter that the kids can use to segment words. The results are easy to print and/or email to teachers. I try to give it to my kiddos three times during the school year. I love seeing their percentages increase over the course of the year! And, I've never given a copy to a teacher who didn't agree with the results. It would be even better if there were graphs for us more visual peeps :-)

Great Phono App!

This app is a great tool for assessing students' phonological awareness in a concise, easy-to-use package. Smarty ears has made it very easy to analyze the results by color-coding the subsections of the overall test so you can see exactly where a particular student needs extra work. Despite covering a fair amount of ground, the test is pretty quick to administer, and you always have the option to skip a section if it's not appropriate for that child. All in all, I highly recommend this app to anyone who works with kids who have (or are suspected to have) phonological deficits! Money well spent!
