#38 of 100 - TalkON
TalkON is your personalized speech therapy assistant.
10% of children worldwide have communication difficulties and require speech therapy.
Research shows that early intervention as well as parental involvement are extremely efficient in helping children overcome these problems.
However, one of the most serious issues during the Covid-19 pandemic has been the inability of medical practitioners to provide on-site delivery for a wide range of treatments.
TalkON is a SaaS system that builds a child’s tailored program and gives parents tools to maintain continuity of therapy from home. Therapists can track the child's progress and make therapeutic decisions with objective measurements, thus shortening the length of therapy required for the child
Giving parents personalized home-based practice and professional virtual guidance during the speech therapy period, TalkON makes speech therapy accessible and helps save time and money for parents and institutions.
The SaaS solution is based on unique algorithms, AI, and Speech Recognition, empowering parents as agents of change and building tailored training programs for each child. These programs are based on the child’s abilities and needs and are automatically updated based on his progress. It enables parents to keep helping their child even on those complicated days. TalkON improves and accelerates the speech therapy outcomes and allows more children an access to the effective therapy they need.
TalkON was recently named a Finalist in the Mass Challenge 2020 Israel competition.
Leetal Tisman, Co-Founder and CEO explained more:
"During the Covid-19 crisis, when most speech and communication treatments are cancelled, it is even harder to maintain the therapeutic continuum and allow children who have difficulties to show progress in their therapeutic goals. This is a critical time when children do not receive treatment and continue to expand the verbal, communicative and social gaps. TalkON is here to provide remote access to effective speech therapies at this time of great difficulty."
2Scots is delighted to highlight the groundbreaking work of TalkON and wish Leetal, Hila and their team continued success in their mission to improve the quality of life for so many children around the world..
