Research was done to explore all the possible ways computers can be used to assist the Speech-Language Pathologist working in the public schools. This includes using the computer as a database, word processor, tool for evaluation, and biofeedback device. Research also includes using the computer to analyze data, information on software packages, hardware equipment, augmentative communication devices, tips for computer use during therapy, evidence for computer use and factors inhibiting computer use. A survey was conducted to explore how Speech-Language Pathologists use computers, and their feelings on computer time-savings. Findings indicate that most Speech-Language Pathologists have and use computers in therapy, but only for a small percentage of their overall therapy time. Almost all Speech-Language Pathologists surveyed believe that computers can and do save them time.
