Therapy with TikTalk begins with an initial assessment by a certified SLP, who then defines the treatment plan and guides the child through therapy using the TikTalk application as a supplement to face-to-face therapy. The child plays games at home while practicing the target sounds. The therapist monitors and guides the child every step of the way.
TikTalk is available for download to iPad and Android tablets. On a limited basis, TikTalk To Me will loan a dedicated mobile device that is solely equipped with the TikTalk platform. Supplies are limited.
TikTalk’s interactive platform uses engaging video games and AI-learning algorithms to assist SLPs in the treatment of articulation and phonological processing disorders. While it is not specifically designed for the treatment of childhood apraxia of speech or voice disorders, it may be an appropriate and useful tool for such cases in many circumstances.
The TikTalk solution uses engaging games with built-in, accurate, remote personalized feedback. This removes the need for constant feedback by a parent or therapist and motivates children to progress rapidly and complete treatment faster than with traditional methods.
The TikTalk state-of-the-art platform only addresses speech sounds as directed by the SLP. Having a different dialect or accent will not affect the treatment.
The TikTalk application will “listen” to your child’s speech and immediately provide feedback indicating whether it was correct, close, or incorrect. Your child’s SLP can listen to the recordings later too. No more worrying!
Yes! We certainly hope so. The TikTalk application is designed so that children can play games WHILE they practice. There are different games to select from, so that children can choose the ones that they find the most appealing.
