Clinicians make use of all kinds of materials when they teach words, sentences, and conversation skills. Real objects, toys, pictures, videos, books, and gestures are frequently employed to help children and adults understand language. Convenient, efficient access to video and other picture and text materials is always of interest to teachers and clinicians. The purpose of the present project was to explore the development and use of Quick Response (QR) codes as a potential clinical tool. This volunteer student research team developed QR codes that immediately direct the user to online materials such as videos and pictures that illustrate frequently occurring therapy targets, for example a quick video of a child running. A free app for smart phones or tablets activates the QR code and shows the materials. QR codes are easy to share with other clinicians via our clinical technology website.
