    Practice makes perfect! by

    Getting a 5 year old to focus on tongue placement and pronunciation is quite a challenge. The Speech Buddy turned a task into a quick game, and the idea that just by practicing a little every day he would eventually do it perfectly without even thinking about it really appealed to him. We heard immediate improvement and continue to hear more every day. Highly recommend.

    We heard improvements right away by

    We have only just begun using a Speech Buddies but it is apparent right away that they are helpful tools. My son just turned 4 and only after using the L Speech Buddy twice we have seen and heard an improvement. He will get my attention and show me his tongue and where to place it in his mouth to make the correct. "L" sound.

    We have really high hopes by

    Amazed that my daughter could isolate the "L" sound once we used the Speech Buddy. We have really high hopes that with practice she will be able to make the correct sounds without the buddies.

    We're rolling by

    My son has been using Speech Buddies (specifically the L) since the Fall. He is diagnosed with Childhood Apraxia of Speech. The speech buddy is really helping with his tongue placement, and giving him a tactile cue for where his tongue should be. I have referred your product to many colleagues, and parents. Thank you :)

    Doing Great by

    My daughter has motor challenges including speech. She has had therapy since she was 3 with little effect. She's now 9 and we've been using the R and L speech buddy for a month now. She's made more improvement in the past month at home than with 6 years of professional therapy. She still struggles, but having a placement target in her mouth helps her know exactly when she's got it right. Thank you for a wonderful product. It seems expensive, but I think when we're completely done, it will cost less than the number of therapy sessions it would have taken to accomplish the same results. Oh, and she loves using it!
