DIGITAL TOOLS FOR ARTICULATION THERAPY

TikTalk is a groundbreaking new speech therapy app designed to help you help your clients.

Children need to generalize what they learn by practicing at home, in between sessions. That can be challenging: finding or creating properly customized home-practice materials that are tailored to each child’s specific needs—and that are fun and motivating—is time-consuming work. Even then, many kids don’t practice consistently or correctly outside of their therapy sessions.

TikTalk can help you, and them.

Quick, Customized Target Setting

At the heart of the TikTalk platform is a robust database that allows you to quickly and easily create fully customized articulation goals for each of your clients. In just moments, you can choose which phoneme or phonemes you want them to focus on—and which to avoid—based on phonemic context. You can make a child’s articulation goals as specific or as general as they need, adjust the target length from syllable to word or sentence level, and layer in constraints to ensure their targets are precisely tailored to their capabilities at any point in time.

Want a child to work on S blends but avoid /SL/? Graduate them from single to multiple sound occurrences? TikTalk can do that in just a couple of clicks.

The app allows you to set one goal at a time or several at once. If you have a sense of what your full treatment plan will be, you can create a sequence of goals for a kid to work through one by one, too.

Learning Through Play

Back at home, children (or their parents) load up the TikTalk app and log in. TikTalk will give kids an array of games to choose from to help them practice whatever goals you’ve set, turning something that can feel like homework into a bit more of an adventure. 

There are dozens of selections; children can stay motivated by having some autonomy and picking the ones they like the most.

Learning through Play

At the heart of the application are interactive video games that enable children to practice and learn on their own. The speech-language pathologist easily customizes the games to meet each child’s speech therapy needs, and TikTalk’s artificial intelligence “listens” while the child practices and plays, providing accurate, just-in-time feedback . The SLP monitors each child’s progress remotely between therapy sessions to ensure more rapid advancement than ever before.

Remote Monitoring and Adjustment

Ever wonder if your articulation clients are actually doing their homework, or doing it correctly? TikTalk automatically records their practice sessions, so you can get a clear sense of how things are going. In addition to providing you with audio and video recordings, the SLP portal lets you easily generate reports capturing how much your clients are practicing and how effective that practice has been. You’ll be able to show the progress a child is making to their parents and caregivers—and even to the kids themselves. If they are doing well, you can keep the momentum going and increase the complexity of their targets remotely; if a child gets stuck, you can catch that and help them course correct right away.

TikTalk essentially closes the distance between you and your articulation clients, keeping you in more frequent, better touch as they move through their goals.

Reporting

Accelerate Articulation and Generalization

Whether you’re working in a school and wish you had more one-on-one time with your kids, or in private practice facing a backlog of children who need to access speech therapy, using TikTalk can reinforce the hard work you and your clients do in your sessions. By making at-home practice fun, sustainable, and effective, it can add momentum to the therapeutic process—and get your articulation clients making progress more quickly.
