“… students [in a 4th grade urban school class] were captivated by SentenceShaper’s child-friendly interface, including fun icons to manipulate and pictures of their choice imported from the Internet … Buttons were created to target specific lexical/functional items…. In these ways, SentenceShaper could be appropriately tailored to address the linguistic and cultural backgrounds of diverse students.… SentenceShaper increased the students’ awareness of and attention to their own speech. It fostered self-monitoring and self-correction, as well as a sense of pride in tracking their own progress.”  Whitney Anne Postman, PhD (Linguistics)/CCC-SLP, and Janet Brodie, CCC-SLP (See “Clinical Blogs” for the full post)
