Malachi is our 8 year old. He is still struggling to learn how to read. We have tried all kinds of resources, but I am really starting to think that his speech is part of what is hindering his ability to learn to read. He is starting to pick up on the reading, but he is making very slow progress.
Now it is time to start looking into resources that we can use to create a speech therapy program at home. I started researching and brainstorming and I found a list of products to research and some catalog companies to check out. (there are NO affiliate links here)
Individual Products to research further:
- Speechercise Level 1
- Speechercise Level 2
- Super Star Speech (Review by Kris over at Weird Unsocialized Homeschoolers)
- Quick Children’s Speech Therapy At Home
- Teach Me How To Say It Right
- Home Based Speech Therapy (Review by Special Needs Homeschooling)
- Lip Sync
Companies That Sell Speech & Language Products:
- Super Duper Inc
- Academic Communication Associates
- Heads Up Now
- Kids Games For Speech Therapy
Have you used any of these products or companies? What do you think of them? Do you have any other speech therapy products you can recommend to me?
