Today’s interview is with Lynn Carahaly, M.A., CCC-SLP, Developer of The Speech-EZ® Apraxia Program and Speech-EZ® apps.  Please visit their website, Facebook and Twitter pages.

Thank you for participating our interview. Please tell us a little about yourself and Speech-EZ® apps.

I have been practicing as a Pediatric Speech-Language Pathologist for over 15 years now. I received her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from “The” Ohio State University. I am the owner/director of private practice, Foundations Developmental House, LLC, located in Gilbert, AZ, which is home of The Speech-EZ® Apraxia Program and Speech-EZ® apps. I work in the clinical setting and the school based setting and develop Speech and Educational apps. My area of specialization is with the treatment of childhood apraxia of speech, auditory processing disorders, related disorders and learning disabilities, as well as pragmatic language.

How is your Apraxia Picture Sound Cards app different from other apps for apraxia?

Our patent pending sharing technology is probably the feature that makes Apraxia Picture Sound Card superior. If communication between SLP and parent is important to you, then this is your app. I really wanted to create an innovative way to increase communication and participation between SLP and parent. Providing parents with a sound tool to work with their child is key. If the SLP has the Pro version, and the parent has the Parent version, SLP and parent can communicate between devices! The SLP has the ability to create customized stimulus homework sets and “share” directly to the parent’s app.

You can also create a team if your child is working with more than one therapist. For example, many children have a school SLP and a private SLP or home-based SLP. Progress can be viewed by the whole team so everyone is on the same page. Goals for CAS, Phonological Processes and more can be hand selected and customized from goal bank and shared with parent.

What also makes this app a stand out is the use of Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) treatment techniques using Hand Cues which are manual gestures used to mimic articulatory movements, leading to increasing procedural memory and improved motor planning. You are investing in a method and not just an app with flash cards. The full Speech-Ez Manual is now included with print functions.

Did you hire a developer or do it yourself?

I have a wonderful mobile apps development team, Codered-i.com

What are your plans for the future? Will you be developing any more apps?

I would love the opportunity to continue to develop more apps in other areas that I am passionate about, including auditory processing, Executive functioning and working memory. I also have ideas to continue to make our current apps even more amazing.
