What is it about?
App Store Description
Welcome to the Speedy Speech™ App, an all-inclusive intervention program designed to help both children and adults correct speech errors quickly and efficiently through short 5-10 minute, one-on-one drill sessions. This app is structured in design and flexible in use. It is ideal for speech therapy sessions, practice at home, ESL learners, and school based intervention programs, such as RTI.
The Speedy Speech™ app has easy navigational menus. It has a hierarchical model of implementation that begins with auditory bombardment and discrimination, and then progresses through a series of word, phrase, and sentence level drills that include built-in phonemic consistency and co-articulation practice.
Each section of the app includes information pages to help guide you through the sound remediation process. Each step is clearly explained making this app very user-friendly for both speech experts and novices alike. Utilize the 'i' icon throughout the app to access more information about each section.
The Speedy Speech™ app is available for sounds R, S, and L (each sold separately). It can be used under the guidance of Speech-Language Pathologists, parents, para-professionals, teachers, or other caregivers in assisting children to improve their speech. Motivated adults who would like to improve their own speech can use this app independently or as a practice tool when working with a Speech Therapist.
The app is evidence-based and incorporates data-driven decision making to ensure the success of the students who use it. It has built-in customizable features, including automatic data collection for each student, sound recording, and voice prompts.

Response to Intervention
The Speedy Speech™ app implements progress monitoring and data-driven decision making, which makes it ideal for RTI. Because this app is distinctly rich in vocabulary, pictures, and exposure to grammatically correct spoken sentences teachers and therapists can make slight adjustments in their presentation and use the stimulus materials provided to assist in the remediation of various language-based delays. To help facilitate this type of instruction, several of the in-app information pages include suggested strategies that support the following areas:
• listening, auditory attending, and memory
• expanding utterances
• grammatical structures
• “wh” questions
English as a Second Language (ESL) Learners
ESL learners benefit from repeated exposure to targeted sounds, vocabulary, and correct English grammar. The Speedy Speech™ app incorporates high quality recorded audio samples alongside engaging illustrations that represent vocabulary and English language samples. The app also provides numerous opportunities for chorus repetition to imitate native-like pronunciation. As a result, ESL learners can use this app to gain new language skills and improve their prosody and perception of the English language.
