Conrad Myers - Product Specialist

Mr. Conrad speaks about SPED Pad in general and the power of apps that helps students with special needs perform better.


SPED Pad has really made a difference with my moderate to severe students with autism. I encounter fewer behavior problems, more focus, and more verbal output from my students.

The hardest part about being an SLP is finding activities kids actually enjoy that target their specific needs. Identifying appropriate apps takes a lot of time after school hours. SPED Pad streamlines my productive time so that I can spend more time on quality service provision.

After I started using used SPED Pad in my therapy sessions, a kid who was nonverbal became very responsive and said the word "fantastic" for the first time. It was a magical and WOW moment.

There are definitely advantages for kids who are visual learners.

Great for traveling to multiple sites.

It's good to have the folders and categorizations. I set up an English folder with a high school student so we could get therapy started faster.

I used it like a book with a group of 10 preschool students.

SPED Pad has really made a difference with my moderate to severe autistic students.

It has a comprehensive collection of apps applicable to my preschool setting.

I don't have to carry around so many therapy materials. It's attractive and interactive for children.

I must say I love SPED Pad. It is a great tool to work with the little ones.

I encounter less behavior problems, more focus and more verbal output from my limited verbal students.

Independent Case study

The SPED Pad independent case study was designed by Creative Strategies for Special Education (CSSE) to obtain and analyze feedback from a cohort of professionals who used SPED Pad as a supplemental resource tool in their therapy service programs during the 2012-2013 school year.

Employing an online survey and phone interviews, CSSE obtained data regarding the following key topics:

  1. user demographics
  2. unique SPED Pad features
  3. comparison of SPED Pad to other therapy resources and tools
  4. users' application and evaluation of SPED Pad for treatment of students with disabilities and to meet workload requirements and
  5. satisfaction with pre-loaded apps.

The results confirmed that SPED Pad's design and unique features provide a valuable resource for SLPs and OTs who find themselves challenged by the demands of their school therapy roles and responsibilities.
