Kids Speech Labs building the new perspective on childhood speech and language development

How do we know what is right for each child?

Speech and language development is a critical developmental process for young children:

  • Poor vocabulary at 5 years of age is linked to reading difficulties, mental health problems and underemployment.

  • Reading skills at age 5 is a greater predictor of academic skills at age 5, greater than poverty or parental education.

We know it's difficult to know what normal speech development looks like, where is the growth tracker for speech?

What are we doing?

We are giving parents the data they need to understand their child's speech development journey. 

Our validated applications help parents know if their child has the right speech skills for their age.


Based on your child's progress and upcoming expected milestones, we provide tailored training games to help children at all stages of development.

We're testing at the moment, if you want to know more or participate in our studies get in touch below
