SPEECH THERAPY APPS FOR ADULTS & CHILDREN
The ability to communicate is a fundamental human right. Some people are born with communication difficulties. Others acquire speech or language problems later in life due to stroke, brain injury and conditions such as Parkinson's Disease. These difficulties can have life-altering effects for individuals and their families.
At Aptus Speech Therapy, we are using our knowledge, experience and understanding to create innovative apps, all with one aim in mind. We want to help and guide people on their speech therapy journey to better communication.

I am a Canadian SLP with many PD and PD+ patients on my caseload. I have found Conversation Paceboard to be quite helpful in teaching a slower rate of speech and better clarity. My clients seem to enjoy this app as it gives them immediate feedback (Too Quick). As well they seem to find it more fun and modern than a traditional pacing board. Well done!
