Ratings and Reviews
WOW! This app is GROUND BREAKING AND POWERFUL! It is FANTASTIC, A MIRACLE! I recently moved from working with elementary school children grades k-4 to upper elementary grades 5-6. I needed a system to integrate the curriculum into therapy and take DATA. The iPACT is it! Versatile, creative, functional, and creative. It allows one to address language learning at all levels including adult therapy.
Core components of learn about, talk about, read about and write about expands and information and photos can be quikly manipulated into different formats. It portability and flexibility make it the only app one needs for therapy. The price is extremely reasonable considering the vast possibilities for use. Thank you Phyl for creating this gift for all of us!
Anyone can use this app

I have worked with Phyl for just over 5 years and this is one of the best tools that she has created. The IPACT is so easy to use. You can make an activity that the students are actively engaged in, in just minutes. This is a tool that any student can use in any setting. It is a wonderful way to differentiate and include students of any ability.
The iPACT really reduces the prep time needed to create lessons. Using the iPACT, I create an activity once and then clone it or convert it to differentiate the activity for different learner levels.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
