The speech therapy in Finland is very common even among Finnish families with no other languages involved. Available therapy tools are not specifically designed for the Finnish speaking children, therefore we see a great need for creating this tool. The application will be used in a treatment of the delays in speech development, focusing on the contemporary communication methods and available technology while fully following the proven success of the speech therapy methods.
The goal of the project is to produce the interactive book for the children with speech development challenges, for which this application will serve as a therapy tool. The book will have numerous mini-games through which the therapy methods will be fully implemented. We wish to make a special contribution on the player's own motivations in speech development, since the player should not be at all times aware that the therapy and controlled learning environment are taking place.More information
