Abstract

The research project was conducted to develop a mobile application as a medium of communication between speech pathologists and the stutterers. This application involves storing data, retrieve data and it is a medium of communication between stutterers and their speech pathologists. This project will identify the appropriate ways for speech pathologists to retrieve their patients’ results to evaluate their performances. Other than that, it is also to identify ways for speech pathologist to communicate with their patients rather than the patients need to meet them face to face regularly. Nowadays, there are lots of mobile applications available in the market that provide techniques to improve stuttering problem among children and adults. However, none of the application allows speech pathologists to access their patients’ data based on the techniques provided or communicate with their patients through the mobile application. Current stutter mobile application only provide assessment and exercise for the stutterers but they did not allow the patient to save and store recorded files for sharing. This mobile application is targeted for speech pathologist in clinics or hospitals in Malaysia and it is built on Android platform. In this project, the method used to achieve the objectives is Rapid Application Development. From the survey that have been conducted with Speech Pathologists, most of them suggested that the application can be used as an exercise for stutterers. The Speech Pathologists stated that this application can assist them in providing results for them to monitor their patients’ results. This Stutter Manager Mobile Application will be providing all the results for Delayed Auditory Feedback (DAF) & Mirroring technique, Metronome technique, Stutter Rate techniques and Add Word Game. As for DAF & Mirroring and Metronome results it will in the form of recorded file. While for Stutter Rate, it is in the form of graph where speech pathologists can review the progress of their patients. While for Add Word Game, the results will show the percentage word the patient could pronounce. Therefore, with the presence of this application, speech pathologists are able to communicate with their patients and also review their patient’s results.
