The Texas Speech and Hearing Convention (TSHA) took place in San Antonio between the 20th and the 22nd of March. The TSHA convention is the largest state level convention in the United States that provides CEU sessions to speech-language-pathologists ( SLPs). After registering the presence of Smarty Ears on Yapp Guru, we have been attending the TSHA convention since 2010, and we are so proud to have been a part of every single TSHA convention in the last 5 years.
We still remember our first year, with balloons and hand written signs for the booth. This year, our 10×10 booth had high quality signage and displayed several of our 60
applications. This year’s greatest hit for smarty ears at TSHA was the Bilingual Articulation and Phonology Test, the first standardized articulation and phonology test for the iPad. This is the only test that was standardized directly on the iPad itself. Everyone came to the Smarty Ears booth wanting to take a look at the BAPA app, meeting the smarty Ears CEO Barbara Fernandes, and were amazed at the potential for assessing not only bilingual students but also monolingual English speakers.
This time we have an amazing giveaway at our booth, TSHA attendees had the opportunity to sign up for a prize of over $600 in apps for their iPads! One lucky SLP won a copy of every single Smarty Ears app for her iPad. The best news is that she was already a Smarty Ears fan! Check out the video of when we picked our winner.
We also have already signed up for next year’s convention that will happen very close to home: Fort Worth!!!
