Using my ipod.

I downloaded Appzilla for my new ipod, which has a feature called "Buzzer". Appzilla costs .99 and has 50 neat, but mostly useless little mini-apps. However, I do use it in therapy as a self-monitoring tool. The kids monitor my articulation and grammar - and their own. If I didn't change activities, I think they could have 'buzzed' each other for the whole 30 minute session.

When you open the app, there is a crowd cheer sound. And, as you probably guessed, the green button makes a happy "ding!" and the red button makes an annoying "buzzzz".

This is a pretty simple use of technology in therapy. For a really high-tech take on some neat gadgets, check out the Geek SLP blog!
