We have used SentenceShaper extensively both in research and in the clinic. It is obviously a terrific terrific tool for building sentences. It is so well-designed and easy for clients to use that they truly enjoy using it and often request that we use it during an activity. We have found it especially helpful for improving self-monitoring and self-correction abilities during many different types of tasks. Most recently, we are using it to create stories for ‘books’ as part of a literacy project. It has been a fabulous assistive device to improve sentence formulation as part of this project. The best part is seeing the look on the face of the clients after they have successfully organized their thoughts and words into a meaningful sentence in their own voice.”
