Welcome to Speech Club! We understand that many parents, like yourself, are concerned about their child's developmental language and communication skills. The impact of the Covid lockdown on children's development has added to frustrations regarding the speed and support provided by authorities.
Rest assured, you are not alone, and we are here to help you!
We have made everything simple and easy to follow. Just sign into your course and press play; you will be guided from there.
The first 3 sections in Speech Club focus on establishing pre-verbal skills and may seem very easy and basic. They have been intentionally designed that way. Please remember that Speech Club is for the children. So, watch those first sections to establish and tick off the foundations needed for further learning.
Our lessons are simple, structured, and designed to be watched and repeated multiple times. It's a bit like "Wax on/Wax off" in the Karate Kid movie. Our course gradually builds confidence and learning. They won't even realize they are learning, and the benefits may not be instantly revealed.
Our evidence-based results show that the course works. So please give it time to show results! If the videos are watched in short bursts and regularly, most parents see "significant improvements in 3 months," but many also notice improvements much sooner than that!
If you have any questions, please email one of our Speech Therapists; they will be happy to assist you with any concerns related to your specific child.
Thank you, and have fun!
