Recommendations for using this app:

I think this would be a great app for in the nursing homes. Nursing homes tend to have their own software system, as do most places SLPs work. However, this would be great if you couldn't carry a laptop around with you. You could type up notes and then transfer them to the software system later. It also helps if you can't put your charges in right away--you can remember exactly what happened in your sessions! If you're not using the iPad for therapy that day, you could jot notes down by student. Hit "complete" and that note cannot be edited. This would be a great and easy way to eliminate lots of loose papers in files, especially since this app is HIPAA compliant! If you're not using the iPad for therapy that day, have the students take data themselves in a note. They would find this highly motivating, I'm sure--the iPad always helps! This app could be great for meeting notes. Maybe you feel like you can't write everything down in meetings and typing is faster. Maybe you want a place to save meeting notes along with the child's data. This would be a great way to do that.

How could this app be better?

I would love a way to upload a template. They have a progress note template in there, but that doesn't necessarily work for our field. It would be awesome to have a way to upload or own template for progress notes, evaluations, etc. I would also like a way to add tables, graphs, etc. I can draw these by hand in the "draw" note, but they don't always look pretty or get the job done very well. I would like a way to have more than one child's note open at once, perhaps a side-by-side type thing. While this may be a bit complicated to do on the developer's side of things, it would make group sessions a lot easier (instead of having to back out of every kid, go into another one, and so on). Finally, I would like a way to add more information about the client. Right now, there is basically just his name under the client information. It would be great to be able to add goals, likes, dislikes, etc. .
