About Mirla G. RazI am an Arizona licensed speech pathologist and am certified by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. I have been in private practice for over 30 years working extensively with children who have speech and language problems. I received my Master’s degree from Seton Hall University in New Jersey. After graduation, I decided that I need sun and warmth and so headed south to work for the Volusia County Schools in Daytona Beach Florida. The next year I moved to California where I was offered a job working for the Los Angeles Unified School District in the severe oral language handicapped program. My next move was to UCLA where I worked in the department of Clinical Linguistics at the Neuropsychiatric Institute. In 1981, I moved to Arizona where I went into private practice. It gives me tremendous satisfaction to know that I have helped hundreds of children gain normal speech and language skills.

Speech Therapy for Apraxia: In order for me to recommend a therapy app, I need to feel that it can simplify the life of the therapist and will be a fun learning experience for children. Unfortunately, Speech Therapy for Apraxia fulfills neither of these requirements. This app was developed by Blue Whale Apps [...]
Last August I posted on my debacle with the first app developer I hired. Unfortunately, the news on the second guy I hired is equally dire. Last May, I contacted a developer whose app I had downloaded and liked. It had animation, was interactive and fun. We Skyped and got to know each other a [...]
Speech FlipBook: The developers of this app state, "This is a tool rather than a therapy program..." This is an important warning. That is because this is an app that focuses on the production of sounds. I have lost count of the number of times I have negatively reviewed apps because the developer has delved [...]
