PRLog - Jan. 27, 2012 - ORLANDO, Fla. -- Smarty Ears is attending the Assistive Technology Industry Association (ATIA) convention on January 26 - 28, 2012 in Orlando, Florida. The 2012 ATIA convention, which is currently being held at the Caribe Royale Orlando All-Suite Hotel & Convention Center, provides over 2,000 professional practitioners, educators, and parents with a forum that presents the latest information, products, and services that effectively aid individuals with disabilities. Featuring over 200 educational sessions, the ATIA convention is recognized for providing the latest tools that can be incorporated into sessions, thus improving the lives of people with disabilities.
Smarty Ears is among the number of companies who will showcase their newest technology and tools that address the needs of individuals with language, speech, hearing, and reading difficulties. These new innovations will also make a difference in the workplace of speech therapists, teachers, and other practitioners.
Smarty Ears was the first company to integrate speech therapy into mobile applications. Launched in 2009 by ASHA-certified Speech Pathologist and CEO, Barbara Fernandes, Smarty Ears has grown significantly and has become the leader in speech therapy mobile apps development with over 27 apps for iOS devices and 3 Android apps.
Smarty Ears will be showcasing several apps including the newly released Profile for Phonological Awareness (Pro-PA) and Custom Boards. Developed by Canadian Speech-Language Pathologist, Tanya Coyle and published by Smarty Ears, Pro-PA was created to evaluate and describe the phonological awareness skills in children with speech, language, and/or reading difficulties. Custom Boards is an activity creating center that uses over 11,000 Smarty Symbols and 110 templates.
The 2012 ATIA convention gives Smarty Ears the opportunity to reach a wide range of people who serve individuals with disabilities, and these cutting-edge apps can soon be included in their sessions and assist children and adults with speech and learning disabilities in receiving the proper resources and support they need to enhance their learning and communication skills.
