AAC Evaluation Genie

Description

AAC Evaluation Genie is an informal diagnostic tool that is intended to assist speech-language pathologists and others with identifying skill areas that relate specifically to the language representation methods commonly found on augmentative communication systems. The purpose of AAC Evaluation Genie is not to identify a particular speech generating device, but rather build a framework for selecting an appropriate augmentative communication device for ongoing evaluation and / or device trial.

There are 14 subtests that can be administered with screening options available for each subtest.

Systematic Eval of Basic Skills

This app is an instrumental part of most of my (hundreds) of AAC evaluations. I use it to give me information about simple touch access, discrimination with distractors, quick receptive vocab skills, and language organizational knowledge (categorization, association, problem solving with symbols). I love that it creates a data sheet that I just screen shot and save after each student to print later. I don't see this as a therapy tool but an effective way to get quick, systematic information that relates to my AAC device decisions.

A good start, but...

There's a lack of customization options. For example, the speech rate cannot be slowed, the reward sound cannot be changed (the current one is startling for some clients and childish), and the therapist cannot choose where to begin in a section (repetitive and frustrating, especially for those with short attention span).

MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL, THERE IS NO OPTION FOR SAVING DATA WITHIN THE APP. I have multiple clients and have to return to the resource room following each one if I want to print out results. If I start a new client without doing this, data from my previous client is gone. This feature has been mentioned many times in these reviews, yet it has never been added.

Some good ideas.

I think this app has some great ideas but it still needs to become more user friendly. First, make the rate of speech and the rate at which the prompts are given adjustable. Some kids cannot process that quickly. Then, make the data save-able, even printable. I didn't know how to save it and lost everything the kid did. (Still don't, in fact.). I'm sure I'll think of mor suggestion but this is it for now.
