About Us

Who are we?

The Speech and Language Store was formed by two experienced Speech and Language Pathologists/Therapists. We work together with the talented folks at Edugame to develop apps that are inspired by the children we work with. Between us, we have over 27 years of experience working as SLP/SLTs with children who have a wide range of communication needs.

We specialise in complex special needs and work on a daily basis with pre-school and school-aged children as part of multi-agency teams within hospital clinics and school settings.

Why apps?

We are excited by the possibilities that technology can bring to therapy; we find that use of technology, however simple, helps the children we work with to win the battle against their attention, comprehension and interaction difficulties to allow them to engage in constructive learning.

We have always marvelled at the determination and resilience of the children we work with and the parents and professionals who support them and felt they deserved useful, high-quality and fun therapy resources.

Apps for all ages

Our apps are designed for children, not just those with Speech and Language difficulties and also provide typically developing children with opportunities to practise their listening and language skills.

We’ve had some great feedback from reviewers and users alike and are eternally grateful to the wonderful online community of bloggers, reviewers, parents and professionals who have embraced our apps. The feedback is invaluable to us, so please track us down on facebook, twitter or via our email.  We always appreciate AppStore reviews too!
