We are proud to work with the best SLP/SLPA programs and professionals in the nation. Here's what they have to say about SimuCase.
"I've been using SimuCase since its inception. It has changed my Assessment course from a standard classroom format into an exciting, motivating, 'experience'. There is no substitute for the 'hands on' interactions it facilitates. I couldn't go back to lecture and demonstration!"
Sheree Reese, Ed.D., CCC-SLP
Professor & Director of Center for Communication Disorders
School of Communication Disorders & Deafness
"Virtual simulations have the potential to move our profession to the next level. All clinicians, including students, need opportunities to improve their diagnostic evaluation skills in a nonthreatening environment and receive appropriate feedback. The SimuCase technology is a brilliant means of enhancing knowledge and skills for all SLPs."
Barbara Hodson, Ph.D., CCC-SLP

"In an effort to restructure a largely attended and work intensive diagnostic seminar, my colleagues and I reviewed SimuCase. Within minutes of the introductory preview session, we quickly realized how practical and functional the program was. SimuCase mirrored our diagnostic clinical format, breaking down each critical step of the diagnostic experience, simplifying the process, while providing specific, important, feedback to the novice intern. It’s the perfect simulation for the speech-language student!"
Melissa Kern Fitzgerald, M.A./CCC-SLP
Coordinator of Speech-Language Therapy
"This was my first experience with SimuCase and I'm thrilled with what it confirmed for me on my maiden voyage. I have a few students who are strong but not stellar academically, i.e. the B+ kids whom I've been certain would make excellent clinicians. Those students made remarkable gains via SimuCase practice. My worry is that given the steep climb to a seat in a graduate program, only stellar grades will do. That's not ok. I can now use SimuCase data to support my recommendation. Much better than instinct alone. Thank you."

"I used SimuCase as a remediation for a student. The student used the “Learning Mode” for 3 or 4 cases (with creating a treatment plan). We discussed them together as she was moving through the cases. Then we had two cases where she had to use the “Assessment Mode” as well as create treatment plans. She did very well and really raved about SimuCase. She did say it took her a while to get used to it (e.g., getting points reduced for doing more assessments than needed, etc.). I asked her if she thought it would be a valuable tool for the clinical class and she said absolutely yes. She wished we had used it when she went through the class."

"We believe the SimuCase method will provide students with time to test "good", "better", and "best" clinical decisions. This discovery approach creates an excellent venue for reasoning practice without consequences to actual clients nor the constraints of timelines found with other learning formats. SimuCase has enormous potential and we applaud the efforts of Stacy Williams and her development team."

"Simucase allowed me to facilitate a lab environment in a large undergraduate lecture style classroom. Students reported feeling more confident in their assessment and clinical writing skills. They enjoyed the 24/7 access to materials and the opportunity to practice as much as they needed without pressure and at their own pace. I noticed a higher level of performance in clinical decision making and report writing. Using Simucase was a platform for an active learning environment such as working in groups and sharing oral and written summaries of cases with peer feedback. Simucase allowed me to raise the bar of expectation higher because students were motived to explore and learn more in this virtual environment. Both the students and I were proud of their work. Truth be told, we had a lot of fun during class because the work they had completed outside of class with Simucase allowed us to venture farther in our learning. Quite honestly, I was a bit skeptical at first of virtual learning, however I won’t go back to teaching a class without it."
