Many sites are free but there are some premium services also for which generally the sites offer a trial version also. Let us now go through some popular and reputed sites where one can explore it for speech proficiency.

    1. Talking Pierre the Parrot - This is a popular fun way to listen to what one speaks and then try the same sentence in other ways or try some different sentence. It is an interesting application in which the sentence spoken by the child is repeated by the application in a funny way and then the child can go on speaking and talking hearing the mimicking voice by this application.

  • This is one way rich people expectation. Normally I have seen many parents, house persons used to have the tender child in hands and talking to the child with smiling faces. Parents used to talk with the child while taking outside whether the child reacts or not. In due course the child starts talk well. Many parents of present era have no time to spend with children. You can see the film of Nagarjun with his child acted in Telugu movie which later dubbed in Tamil.

  • It becomes difficult to take care of their kids especially in the current pandemic phase when the parents are engaged in their office work while remaining at home and at the same time their kids are to developed in the direction of better interactive skills. They can encourage their kids with different speech therapy software apparatus. Some of the apparatus for the improvement of the kids in relation to their speech therapy are as follows-
    1) Talk time with tucker - This is rather a voice activated programme encouraging the kids to learn the session with interest. Kids would be required to speak before the microphone and they would be encouraged to talk Tucker through a series of adventures making them interested for the further lessions.
    2) Tiger Tale - This plateform encourages the kids to speak initially lacking interest in the speech. The interesting features is that the children could record their own voice and the same could be heard in the convenient time. This programme is the fine combination of positive approach towards their learning and encouraging their skills
    3) Scholastic.com-

    It is definitely a great website for both pre school and school going children including their parents. This programme would handle varieties of activities for their brain development. This would ultimately develop their speech skills.

  • Nowadays there are many speech problems. Some parents believe that their children will gradually overcome these disorders or problems that are unclear. In some cases, these disorders disappear with age, but some disorders are permanent in nature. Every parent should read about the myths and facts related to speech in children and clear their doubts. You should consult a speech therapist or speech therapist. They are better trained to observe such disorders. It is very important that after confirmation of speech problems, parents learn about speech therapy or speech therapy for children and start as soon as possible. Delay in speech therapy for children can affect a child's confidence.

    These are the websites that can help a child in speech therapy.
    Greatspeech.com
    Tactopus.com
    Stamurai.com
    Seekweb.com

    But with this, it is important that parents should help their children in speech therapy at home as well, for this, take special care of some things -
    1. Mother or father can start the child's day with simple talk. The child should be involved in the conversation, making sure that the child is also responding to you. The more the child talks and communicates, the faster he or she will become fluent.
    2. Children get excited talking about school activities and games, talk to the child as much as possible, this contributes to the speech therapy practice. Talk as much as possible.
    3. Read stories to your children that include pictures, tell the child to repeat the story by pointing to the pictures. Acting is a good at-home speech therapy practice. Ask the child to repeat the story you have read. Let them act out the characters using their imagination.
    4. Give full concentration to the child. While talking to the child, do not focus on other work.
    5. Do not rectify their mistakes unnecessarily and repeatedly. Hear and encourage their conversation positively. Teach them to discuss properly. Gently instruct them to look at the person they are talking to. Tell them not to stop the other person in the middle of the conversation and wait for their turn to come.
    6. Teach them to request something if they want something. Teach them that nothing should be disturbed by anyone. Always praise the child and encourage him to speak. Praise a task or a game at its completion.

    Speech therapy practices are common at home. Your child's speech therapist will advise you on specific exercises. Parents play a very important role in getting the child to overcome speech disorders.
