About SpeechTree

Speechtree was designed by a Speech-Language Pathologist as a way to help parents help their children. Dave Sindrey was trained in Canada and now practices in Mexico. He is also the creator of the Listening Room which provides hundreds of free activities to parents and professionals working with children who have hearing loss (www.thelisteningroom.com).

Therapists can print the game of the week and that game will work the following week with all of the children on their caseload. Each weekly game can be used with any 16 cards for speech or vocabulary. Subscribers can access pdf files to print cards for all of the speech sounds they need (intial, medial, final, and blends). Through the subscriber's account a therapist can set up parent accounts and dictate which speech sound the parent can and should print. The parent will recieve the a new game of the week in their account each Monday. Children can practice the game with their therapist and then go home and practice with their own identical game with their parents. A therapist also has the option of assigning a vocabulary account to a parent. The parent account receives a new set of 16 vocabulary cards each week that will work with their weekly game.

Coming Soon

In 2011 we will add both French and Spanish articulation materials. A therapist can specify the language for their own account, have access to the pdf articulation packages for all three languages and set up parent accounts in French, Spanish or English.
