A Modern Pacing Board with Fun Visual Cues 

Turtle Talk is designed to help children with imprecise articulation and a fast speaking rate to pace their speech and improve their intelligibility in conversation. It consists of a pacing board made of 6 turtles and over 100 optional conversation questions.

Unlike traditional pacing boards, Turtle Talk offers the child additional visual cues and feedback to help them to pace their speech.

  • Choose a conversation topic

  • Answer the conversation starter question

  • Say one word or syllable per circle

  • Wait for the circ le to turtle to fill with colour and get bigger before pressing the next turtle and saying the next syllable or word

  • Adjust the speed at which the turtles fill with colour using the slider bar

Pacing Therapy Tips

  • Build self-awareness and give bio-feedback by recording the child speaking without pacing and then record them speaking when using the app

  • Praise the child for slow talking / "turtle talking"

  • Give a continuous model by also using Turtle Talk as you talk.

  • Keep conversation natural by asking additional questions and making comments
