Speech Blubs helps kids speak!

Speech Blubs is a fun app to help develop kids’ speech. Speech Blubs encourages kids to generate new sounds and words, and activities inspire imitation where kids teach kids. The app has proven especially effective with late talkers and kids with articulation issues.

Video modelling (VM) is a science-based method that consists of a video recording of a child “expert” performing a targeted behavior. Users observe them, triggering their ‘mirror neurons,’ which then starts the imitation process.  This method proves that children prefer to mimic their peers rather than adults. Our speech and language pathologists (SLPs) confirm that VM works wonders with speech development.

Our website is an amazing resource providing access to our network of speech therapists, and our blog section offers lots of practical information for dealing with at-home speech practice, late talkers, temper tantrums, and much, much more.

Struggling Readers? At last–Something that Works & Works Quickly!
There is arguably no single skill that is more important for academic success at any level than an ability to easily and comfortably get information from print. An inability to read well takes an emotional toll on the individual–low self-esteem, truncated opportunities, a feeling of hopelessness. If, in spite of your best instructional efforts and your child’s full cooperation, he (or she) still struggles with reading, we can definitely help. We offer a unique, paradigm-shifting intervention program, Read Right, that relies on the plasticity of the brain to remodel neural circuitry that, in poor readers, guides the reading act inappropriately. Even the most challenged reader can be transformed to a competent reader in a matter of months–not years. Your child can access this program at home through real-time, live tutoring via video conferencing software. Look for our money-back guarantee.
