Speech Club founders, Claire & Claire, have 50 years' combined experience in Speech & Language Therapy. They first came up with the idea of Speech Club in 2020 when they realised how devastating the Covid lockdown would be for the language development of thousands of children.

SPEECH CLUB AND THE PEOPLE BEHIND IT
Operations & Communication
"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.”
100% of parents using Speech Club, said they would recommend it to friends & family!
