Operations & Communication
At Speech Club, our mission is to help transform children’s communication to help them reach their full potential.
We understand that the landscape of speech and language development is incredibly diverse. From parents dealing with their child’s development, home-based childminders with low annual turnovers to expansive public and private-sector nursery chains employing thousands of staff across the nation. The delivery models, capabilities, and capacities vary significantly.
This diversity makes it challenging and the model adopted by most is based on the experience and skills of the individual speech therapist which varies from one to another.
That's why, we created a more inclusive, thoughtful, unique collective process. We believe in focusing on what works for children rather than reports or information that support the size of the invoice. At Speech Club, accessibility and affordability are at the core of our values, supported by a wealth of evidence demonstrating the lasting impact of our approach.
Our commitment extends beyond children alone. We are also here to support parents who have children with delayed language and who can't afford to see their children fall further behind while either waiting for centrally or locally funded interventions, or are seeking a flexible and affordable solution that delivers results today without any further delay.
Our goal is to empower children, families, and communities through the gift of communication, providing support and solutions for every unique circumstance. Join us on this comprehensive journey, where together, we can make a difference in the lives of children and their families.
"I wanted to create a service where any child, rich or poor, could access the speech and language therapy they deserve".
"My goal was to enable families to get speech therapy immediately without wasting precious time on long waiting lists".
"Our challenge was to create an engaging teaching tool. We designed a user experience, where the child believes that our therapists are talking directly to them".
"Speech Club is the Sesame Street for speech & language! My daughter wants to watch it the whole time and really sees the videos and activities as a treat. You have made this whole thing fun and educational for us both! Thank you ladies!”
"Yes we are seeing progress a plenty! Last week he said, 'Grandma pick up me'.... This was because Grandma had picked him up from nursery for the first time. We couldn't believe it, a sentence! Woohoo!"

"There really is no better way to learn than from professionals. We are working away at home and your course is giving us, as parents, direction and focus. We are so grateful to you and will continue to tell everybody about the benefits of Speech Club.”
