This eBook provides expository information and tutorial videos for five currently available iPad/tablet that could be beneficial for a future Speech Language Pathologist. The apps were selected based on criteria of affordability, versatility, and aesthetic quality. This project serves as a final exhibition of the summative knowledge with which the author defines her undergraduate experience. Young learners' natural proclivity for technology such as iPads is quickly expanding; in the ineluctable progression of the digital age, Speech Language Pathologists in the field should adapt to these changes and incorporate tablets to supplement their clients' therapy. For professionals to better another person's quality of life-be that in the classroom or in therapy-it is imperative to stay at the peak of the research in their field; this includes making a mindful effort to constantly implement instruction that further augments a client's development and takes new and innovative techniques into account.
