TikTalk boosts speech therapy with unmatched lesson customization and advanced training for K-6-aged children using engaging video games to encourage frequent home practice.

FREMONT, CA: TikTalk, a new, artificial intelligence-based (AI) system, can boost speech therapy with unmatched lesson customization and innovative training for K-6-aged children leveraging engaging video games to encourage frequent home practice. TikTalk encourages children with speech sound disorders to practice longer and accurately using proven training protocols in a fun game environment. Developed by speech-language pathologists (SLPs) through clinical research and machine learning, repetitive, complex practice regimens are now more exciting and rewarding for SLP and patients alike.

The company has developed an intuitive, cloud-based virtual assistant that offers real-time or follow-up feedback to motivate children and effectively eliminate speech issues. It will help busy speech-language pathologists who face enormous issues, from individualizing relevant practice sessions to encouraging accurate, consistent home practice. For the first time, SLPs can now utilize AI technology to treat patient-specific articulation and phonological processing disorders individually. TikTalk allows SLPs to digitally customize practice word lists with exact target word parameters to ensure exact pronunciation.

SLPs will love the potential to make individualized digital word banks rapidly, which they painstakingly now do between sessions. TikTalk will avoid using off-the-shelf materials, save SLPs time and offer a greater return on investment for the parents of children taking speech training. SLP clinicians already utilize games and props to engage children in their sessions, but now they can program video games for engaging at-home use. Unlike the many apps available, the TikTalk platform integrates engaging games that can be programmed to encourage target word repetitions, making practice feel like play.

The speech recognition features practice frequency, duration, and accuracy with quantifiable results. The TikTalk platform analyzes the speech so the SLP can evaluate practice and make remote adjustments. TikTalk is the only solution to ensure that children receive customized, correct, timely feedback while enjoying game-based remote learning.

SLPs who have harnessed the system echo the outcomes.  Following the recent SLP pilots in Maryland and Ohio, TikTalk is provided at introductory pricing to agencies, private practice SLPs, and school systems. It needs minimal training and is updated continuously as the system develops greater intelligence as patients use the tool. TikTalk is sold based on monthly and yearly.
