    It worked!! by

    My youngest graduated from speech therapy today thanks to the Rabbit Speech Buddy. It was almost like a miracle for us. We only used it about seven times until she was making the R sound correctly on her own. Before the Rabbit Buddy all she could say with the R sound in it correctly was the word "are". And that was after weeks of intensive practice of me working with her. I'm so glad we found out about the Rabbit Speech Buddy! I highly recommend it!

    Now she can make the r sound!!! by

    My six year old daughter could hardly make the r sound at all, ever. I was starting to feel like it was hopeless. Then we got the rabbit buddy and everything changed. Now she can make the r sound!!! Now it's just a matter of her figuring out which words are supposed to have the r sound in them because she could never say it before, not even at the beginning of a word. We've only used it about twelve times and she's totally got the sound down!

    My son has been in speech therapy for over two years now and he continues to struggle with the R sound. His therapist suggested we invest in a Speech Buddy and we are finally seeing progress!

    Each time we have heard clearer /r/s than before by

    My daughter is 10 years old and struggles with /r/. The school district doesn't think it's bad enough for her to receive services at school but an SLP suggested we try the R Speech Buddy. The cost of it isn't much more than the cost of one private therapy session, so we thought we'd give it a try. She has only used it a couple of times, but each time we have heard clearer /r/s than before. She says she can definitely feel the difference in the way her tongue moves and tries to remember that feeling when speaking without the Speech Buddy. I am hopeful that, with time and practice, we will see a marked improvement in her /r/ sound without the Speech Buddy.

    Worth the investment by

    R is a very difficult sound to explain to children, but the R Speech Buddy makes it so much easier for them to understand how to place their tongue to be successful. Worth the investment.

    the last straw by

    Speech Buddies R tool has been a lifesaver for my 6 year old. It was the last straw so to speak before getting a speech therapist for her. She has improved tremendously even after struggling with using the tool. I am so happy that I invested into it. Speech Buddies is our hero!

    A little pricey by

    It is very easy to use and makes tongue placement a breeze. It is a little pricey though for what it is. I also wish there were more online tools.

    Skeptical at First by

    I was a little skeptical of this product at first. My daughter loved the games and practices with the tool frequently. I can see a difference in just a couple of months.

    The speech buddy helped my son with the proper placement of his tongue when making the R sound. A little tricky to use, but customer service is excellent and helped a lot.

    A Life Saver!l by

    We live out of country, and don't have access to English speaking speech therapists. I was doubtful of the Rabbit buddy, but desperate for help. Literally within minutes after using it, my 13 year old son and 9 year old daughter could produce the R sound! Within a couple of days, they could produce the sound without the R buddy. I would get it out, and at the sight of it, they remembered how to make the sound. And after 2 weeks, it has stayed in its case! Our 10 year old now has very clear speech, and we are still working with the now-14 year old to replace the clear R sounds in all words, a bit more tedious from years of bad habits of mushy speech. But I'm confident that because of the Speech Buddy he'll make it. My husband was all for ordering the whole set at the time, but I was more skeptical. Now I wish we would have, as our younger daughter is having problems with the SH and CH! We highly recommend the Rabbit Buddy, and we'll let you know on the other buddies!

    I had a problem with "R" my whole life by

    I had a speech problem with the "R" my whole life. I had speech therapy in elementary and middle school with no success. Now I am 19 still had the speech problem and I bought the "R" tool and it worked!!! Now I am more confident in the way I talk I'm not shy anymore. My self esteem has raised. I recommend this product worked way better than speech therapy. This tool is expensive but its sooo worth the money I spent and It works for adults too. Thank you speech buddies!!!

    Desperate Parent by

    I bought Speech Buddies for my child as a last ditch effort. One hour a week with the "experts" wasn't working, and I was willing to try anything. We used speech buddies for about 10 minutes every night. Within three months, my child's speech had improved dramatically, specifically her R's. My child LOVED doing it, and still asks to use Speech Buddies. I am so thankful for this impowering tool. It made a world of difference for my child.

    Loved it for my son by

    Speech buddies is an innovative and exciting tool. My son used it for his "R"s both at his school and at home. The Speech Buddy helped him learn tongue placement, and with practice he was able to better understand what to do long term with this tricky letter!

    Worked better than expected! by

    Seriously fixed her 'w' sounding "R' in one day. It taught her where to place her tongue in an easy & fun way, and she was able to replicate that tongue placement without the Speech Buddy. So happy I didn't get speech therapy. I saved a fortune.

    My daughter loves her R Buddy by

    We read a newspaper article about the Speech Buddy and decided to give it a try.  My daughter was delighted with the R Buddy. She used it daily for several weeks with immediate improvement and really likes the on-line exercises. Thanks very much!

    Significant Improvement by

    We have noticed a significant improvement in Tara's "r" sound after a few months of using the Speech Buddy.  This is after a six month period of speech therapy sessions that helped, but still required some additional work on the "r" sound.  Also, she uses the Speech Buddy regularly without prompting.

    Expensive but highly recommended by

    My son is 13 and has been in speech therapy for 2 years during the school year. The speech teacher at his school advised me to practice 10 minutes daily during the summer. I did practice, but felt he was just practicing the wrong sound for 10 minutes daily. After I bought the speech buddy, I noticed an immediate difference in his R" sound. I had no idea how to tell him to make the "R" sound. This helped him to place his tongue in the right position. We did the speech buddy academy exercises. I think this has been more productive than the speech classes at school. I am proud of myself and my son. This is an expensive tool, but really helpful. I would highly recommend it.
