What I Like About This App
- That it is highly customizable to meet a wide variety of students individual needs.
- Data is automatically taken and I can access at a later time.
- Contains a nice progression from phrases thru sentences
- With the recent updates to Therapy Report Center the integration with Sentence Ninja is AMAZING.
- Continue to update the app as it gets older. It is always nice to see old friends get a fresh new look as they age. This will continue to make them appealing to therapists and students.
