Traditional speech therapy is a growing industry but there remains a considerable nationwide deficit of speech pathologists. Furthermore, speech therapy is oftentimes cost-prohibitive for many kids who grow up with a speech impediment or a speech-related disorder.

Speech Up is an accessible, affordable, and enjoyable speech therapy app that provides real-time user feedback and personalized self-paced learning for kids.
