Help Your Students with Speech Delays Find Their Voice.

We understand that some children take longer to develop their speech and language skills than others. There's no need to worry – it's like some little learners are in a rowing boat, taking a scenic route, while others zip along in a speedboat. They'll all get to their destination eventually, and sometimes they just need a little extra help with the oars! At HelpKidzLearn, we created our software with these special learners in mind. We know how frustrating it can be for children who struggle to express themselves, and how important it is for them to feel supported and confident.

What is speech and language developmental delay (SLDD)?

Approximately one out of five children may learn to talk or use words later than their peers. This could impact on behaviour problems due to frustration when they can’t express their wants and needs. Some speech delays may be temporary and may resolve on their own or with a little extra help from educators, families, carers and therapists. This can happen for many reasons, including oral motor problems, hearing difficulties, or even conditions like autism. The important thing to remember is that these delays can be temporary and with the right help, children with SLDD can catch up to their peers.

What Is Sldd

Helping students with SLDD blossom.

That's where HelpKidzLearn comes in. We offer a fun and interactive learning environment designed to support children with Speech and Language Developmental Delay (SLDD). Through a variety of game-based learning activities that are not only fun but also tailored to help children with different learning needs. These activities allow children to practice and improve their speech and language skills at their own pace, in a way that suits their unique way. Our software provides visual cues, symbols, and pictures to enhance understanding and communication which helps support children with SLDD.

Made for playful learning.

We know the best way for children to learn is through play. That's why HelpKidzLearn features a variety of engaging games and activities that encourage interaction, turn-taking, and conversation. These activities spark curiosity and keep children actively involved in their learning journey, which is essential for language development. In particular, our sequential activities within our ‘Games & Activities’ is a great resource for helping children develop language and communication skills. For example, our counting songs like ‘Five Little Ducks’ help to engage and support our learning with engaging songs, along with using sensory resources to enrich the learning environment making learning fun.

Additionally, learners can make choices within the stories, promoting decision-making and communication. Each story also includes symbol lists for Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC), aiding non-verbal communication. Each Inclusive Story includes ‘Share Codes’ to use within ChooseIt Maker, to build activities about the stories to further support language development.

    I work with students with Autism who are largely nonverbal. I have had great success using the HelpKidzLearn website to engage students with their AAC devices. I have a young girl who was not easy to engage, but once she heard Five Big Dinosaurs, she was hooked! She's progressed now to using so many words to request different songs, making me forever grateful for HelpKidzLearn!
