Yes/ No Barn by Smarty Ears- Review and GIVEAWAY


Have you been looking for a fun way to work on yes/no questions?  Did you know that Smarty Ears has an app that targets a variety of these questions?  Would you like to learn more about yes/no barn and possibly win your own copy?  If you answered yes to at least two of the above questions, then keep reading!

Like all great Smarty Ears apps, this one offers profile setup and the ability to import existing data for clients via TRC.





My favorite thing about this app is that you have the ability to regulate the type of yes/no questions presented.  For me, the next best thing to collecting and storing data in an app is the option to set parameters and increase challenges appropriately.  The categories include:  Basic Questions; Look and Answer Questions; Fact Based Questions; Variable Answer Questions; Compare Pictures; and Questions About a Scene.  The picture samples below provide an example of each of these questions.


BASIC QUESTION


LOOK AND ANSWER QUESTION


FACT BASED QUESTION


VARIABLE ANSWER QUESTION


COMPARE PICTURES


QUESTION ABOUT A SCENE

I found that several of my young clients would purposely answer incorrectly to hear the auditory feedback, so I switched that feature off and now they only see a visual indicating the choice was accurate. You may also toggle on/ off for displaying the written question, hearing questions said aloud, and audio directions.

The actual picture cues and smarty symbols are great visuals and I love the background barn scene with animal noises.  I didn't feel that the images were too distracting and I liked being able to collect data about each type of yes/no question.  I'm using this app at the end of my clinical sessions for client practice as I complete my SOAP note and provide feedback to caregivers about our session.  I only need to keep an eye on clients to avoid allowing them to select the same responses without fully listening to questions.

Thank you to Smarty Ears for giving me an opportunity to review this app and for offering a redemption code for Yes/No Barn for one of my followers!  Please see the raffle below for your chance to win!  No other compensation was received in exchange for this review and opinions expressed here are solely mine.
