  • This year I will be presenting all-day sessions on iPad for students with speech-language needs, and I recently finished my slideshow. It was fun compiling the slides, as the content focuses on how I typically implement iPad (as a school-based SLP) with my students who have speech-language needs. To this end, I was excited to include the latest features from Percentally Pro 2.1, my data collection app I use each day as an SLP. You can see the Percentally Pro 2.1 information on pages 69 - 86 in the slideshow below. The slideshow also includes ideas and strategies for several other apps. iPad for Speech-Language Needs from Eric Sailers
