Innovating Speech Therapy: A Closer Look at the Dorchester District No. 2 Webinar

The recent collaboration between Speech Blubs Pro and Dorchester School District No. 2 represents a significant step forward in applying digital tools to speech therapy.

Speech Blubs Pro speech therapy app

Speech Blubs Pro is designed to enhance speech therapy sessions through a comprehensive suite of features. It offers speech recognition for assessing word pronunciation, the ability to create tailored sessions for each student and instant homework assignments. It’s a powerful, all-in-one app aimed at improving the effectiveness of speech therapy​. It is completely free for clinicians.

On February 23rd, Julie Weber, the lead SLP of the district, facilitated a webinar that showcased how Speech Blubs Pro could be integrated into their educational system, aimed at enhancing the support provided to students with speech therapy needs.

Dorchester School District No.2 is a highly-rated, public school district located in Summerville, SC. It has over 26,000 students in grades PK, K-12. Recognized as a school system of excellence, Dorchester School District Two has been awarded district-wide National Accreditation from the AdvancED Accreditation Commission

Hosted by Erik X. Raj, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, an integral figure behind Speech Blubs Pro, the session was attended by around 20 speech-language pathologists (SLPs) from the district. This 30-minute webinar provided a comprehensive overview of the app, focusing on its customizable sessions, digitalized flashcards, and the ability to assign and monitor homework at no additional cost to the students. Such features are designed to offer clinicians a flexible and effective tool for addressing the varied needs of their students.

Erik X. Raj, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, is a speech-language pathologist with a unique background in video game design, digital technology, and education. Erik is also an associate professor and the director of the Meaningful Digital Experiences Research Lab at Monmouth University, where he combines his expertise in speech-language pathology with digital technology to create engaging and therapeutic experiences.

The event underscored the importance of leveraging technology to improve educational outcomes. Speech Blubs Pro’s ability to tailor therapy sessions to individual student needs, coupled with its progress monitoring capabilities, offers SLPs a nuanced understanding of student progress. This, in turn, allows for more informed adjustments to therapy approaches, ensuring students receive the most effective support possible.
