May is Better Hearing and Speech Month. This annual event raises public awareness about speech, language and hearing disorders and promotes treatment that can improve the quality of life for those affected. Our apps are co-designed by a Speech-Language Pathologist and we are working with a second Speech-Language Pathologist to develop an app in Spanish. We keep those with special needs in mind when designing our apps.
Since May 1, Speech Cards Professional has been on sale. We are extending the sale until May 12, 2013.
Earlier this week, Speech Cards Professional was featured on Smart Apps 4 Kids as part of a list of discounted/free apps for Better Hearing and Speech Month.
Also, please check out our recently updated SpeakColorsHD.
