Last week we retweeted a tweet about a new Pinterest board from US-based speech and language pathologist, Lauren S. Enders on "AAC: Engaging Apps for Implementation". (Pinterest is a web site that allows the user to bring together web resources and display links to them in a visual format.) The new board arose from a discussion on a Facebook group, based on the question, "What are your Favourite Non-AAC Apps to support AAC?"

The group identified over 50 fun, educational apps, covering everything from making video 'selfies' to baking cakes with lots of colouring, painting and music activities also included.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is just one of an amazing collection of PinBoards that Lauren has put together and maintained over the last few years. She currently has a collection 159 Boards, with nearly 19,000 pins, mostly relating to different aspects of speech and language therapy, augmentative and alternative communication (AAC), assistive technology, iPads and apps. The screenshots below will give a flavour of the subjects she covers.

I must admit that I flirted briefly with Pinterest some time ago as a tool for gathering and maintaining information resources, but I gave up very quickly as I found it cumbersome and time consuming. Another drawback of Pinterest is that you have to register (free) in order to fully acccess the existing Boards, but many people may well find it useful to do this in order to access resources such as the Boards that Lauren has put together.

Lauren certainly deserves our congratulations and thanks for the massive time and effort that she has put into creating these resources and making them available for others.
