From day one, children are communicating. As they grow, they will develop language and communication skills from experiences and through relationships with the people around them.

SPEAK app provides ideas, free activities and information for parents and caregivers to encourage their child to speak and listen every day. The multiple activities within each age group means you can choose the level suitable for your child’s abilities.

The information and activities were developed with the help of speech pathologists, educators and health professionals to nurture oral language development in children from 0–6 years of age.

SPEAK provides a fun, convenient way to make your child’s chatter matter.

Download the SPEAK app for iPhone/iPad or Android.
