Screening App with Raddlist
Raddlist, based in Iceland, is an award winning provider of Speech Therapy and Speech Therapy resources. They have resources available in both English and Icelandic languages. It was founded by Bryndis Gudmundsdottir , a recipient of “The Special Recognition Award” for the “Learning and Playing With Sounds” from Global Women Inventors & Innovators Network (GWIIN) and the Icelandic Women Inventors Network (KVENN).
There are several speech therapy screening tools, to judge a child’s speech development, available in English and other languages. There were none, however, in Iceland. Raddlist wanted Icelandic speech and language therapists to have the same access to an easy screening tool as professionals from other countries speaking other languages. Working closely with the client, Therapy Box designed and developed a screening app with automatic analysis and original features.
Íslenski málhljóðamælirinn is a speech therapy screening tool for use by parents and speech professionals in Iceland. The programme allows for multiple user access from one device, so that professionals can share their iPad without mixing their caseload of clients. Client details can be set up and are stored locally, so that they can be retested at a later date in order to track progress. Users conduct screening tests and mark the student for 9 different error types; they can also record the session to listen back later, and they can make notes as they conduct the test. At the end of the test, a more detailed prompt image is shown, and the examiner can encourage contextualised speech, and judge its articulacy. Íslenski málhljóðamælirinn automatically generates a report, and the user may export it (along with audio recordings) as pdf or html file.
