Beta Testers

We are always building our team of trusted beta testers for new apps. Beta testers are the first people to get a look at our apps and use them clinically before we release them. We are looking for Speech-Language Pathologists who are very detail-oriented with clear writing skills. You must be able to use the app with a clinical population in a timely manner and give frequent feedback on your likes, dislikes, wants, and reactions. This is a volunteer position, though you will be compensated for your time with an advance copy of our latest app, a free copy of another app from our collection, and the knowledge that your input has helped to shape an app that thousands of people will use in therapy.
