Those Affected By Speech Disorders

Speech disorders and impediments affect quite a lot of the world’s population and can be extremely prevalent in children between 3-17. One of the most common speech issues is delay and which occurs when a child isn’t developing speech and language at an expected rate.

Another one is stuttering, also known as stammering, which can impact around 10% of American children although three-quarters of them will outgrow it when they grow older, however, in rare cases, they will be affected even in later life. But some adults can carry some sort of stutter across anyway.

The good news is that there are some brilliant speech therapy apps that can be beneficial for both children and adults, displaying an array of interactive features and tools to get on the right track to overcoming.

Articulation Station

Articulation Station was created by a certified Speech-Language Pathologist for parents and educators to combat speech delays in children. The application contains 6 fantastic and engaging activities. Moreover, it contains an array of real-life images on a white background, making it easy to identify for children.

You practice the sound at increasingly difficult levels, in words, phrases, sentences, and stories, and include the option of teaching 22 sounds in the English language giving a flexible experience.

Conversation Therapy

We discussed a speech therapy app for children, so let’s focus on one for adults. Conversation therapy is undeniably an intuitive application, as it makes you engage in real-life discussions with pictures & questions that get people talking to practice communication strategies.

Most apps out there for speech therapy focus on vocabulary and wording, whilst Conversation is catered towards expressing oneself through topics utilizing gestures, writing, drawing, words, sentences, devices, smooth or clear speech, organized thoughts, or socially appropriate language.

DAF pro

DAF pro is certainly an interesting one, as it is designed to let its users record their voices and hear the results of activities. Its sole purpose is to help those that suffer from a stutter. A lot of people struggle with speaking too fast whether it’s a neurological condition such as Parkinson’s disease, brain injury, etc., So it assists them in slowing down their speech.

It works by enabling someone to hear their speech in a manipulated manner. This disruption to the normal auditory feedback loop causes the speaker to slow down and thus speak more clearly. It will alert them if they’re speaking too fast.

Apraxia Therapy

Apraxia is another speech issue, it’s a neurological condition that difficult or impossible to make certain motor movements, even though their muscles are normal. This app takes advantage of the brain’s wiring to help people speak again and activates by hand tapping, speaking in unison, reading aloud, and watching another person’s mouth – all repeated several times.

A virtual therapist will guide the exercises, allowing the user to focus on the phrases they want to practice on. Not to mention plenty of innovative activities to get stuck into such as sequences that give you 5 familiar and automatic series of words to recite and video modelling to make it easier for people with aphasia & apraxia to speak in unison.


LetMeTalk is a free service, suitable for autism symptoms, down syndrome, speech apraxia, aphasia, and other conditions which cause speech impairment. It requires its users to line up a series of images and read them in a row. Overall, it contains 9,000 easy-to-understand images for improving speech.

One of the greatest features, however, is the fact that you do not require WIFI, it’s accessible in any surrounding, like a hospital, your home, and more. Furthermore, you have unlimited creation of new categories and adding new pictures, giving a real sense of flexibility with it.
