Read It – Say It!

Read It-Say It! was developed to help individuals who can read but for one reason or another, have difficulty saying the words they see and use. The program's effectiveness comes from allowing the individual to be able to see the word as it is spelled while also giving a visual image of how we actually say it. The strength of the program is in how it works with sequencing speech sounds, clearly using vowels to support better articulation and speech production while giving the individual a visual image of what they are trying to say.

It was originally designed to help individuals with dyspraxia but then proved to be beneficial for individuals who have experienced a stroke and have lost speech skills, individuals with motor control for speech problems due to a brain injury, and individuals needing to improve articulation skills, including accent reduction.
