Technology to Improve Outcomes

Language Essentials utilizes many new and proven technologies to improve outcomes and assist patients in reaching their goals more quickly.

Speech Buddies


Speech Buddies are a set of simple yet revolutionary tools designed by expert speech therapists and engineers. By teaching correct tongue positioning for the five most difficult sounds – R, S, L, CH, and SH – children learn and feel how to overcome speech difficulties.


The SmartPalate


The SmartPalate is a visual feedback tool that allows the therapist and patient to see what is happening inside the mouth during speech.  For the first time, you can see, in real time, where the patient's tongue-to-palate contact is occurring.  Evidence-based practice, research and clinical studies show that patients using the SmartPalate are released from therapy within months rather than years and have 85-100% articulation accuracy.
