Speech Journal, by Mobile Education Tools, is another great addition to Kyle Tompson's suite of speech and language apps. Speech Journal is a customizable voice recorder that you pair recorded messages with your own imported images and image sequences. Speech Journal can be used for a wide array of differing activities to document and reinforce speech skill sets including:
- - Customized picture sequences
- - Multi-step picture schedules
- - Multi-step directions
- - Articulation drill and carryover
- - Expressive language exercises
- - Individualized social stories
- - Sample conversations
- - Personal diary
- - Creating family vacation picture albums
Any image from your photo album can be imported into Speech Journal. In addition, iPad2 users can use the onboard camera to create new images within the application. Once you have selected an image, you can create a voice recording to go with the image. Once you have completed a recording, you can play, erase, or save the image/recording pair. You may also add more recordings and images to the recording, creating a slideshow. Previously saved recordings may be re-opened and have as many recordings and images added to them as you like.
Speech Journal gives parents and speech-language professionals an unlimited amount of flexibility to create speech activities and generates speaking opportunities that best suit the needs of their children.
