“Speech pathologists study, diagnose and treat communication disorders, including difficulties with speaking, listening, understanding language, reading, writing, social skills, stuttering and using voice. They work with people who have difficulty communicating because of developmental delays, stroke, brain injuries, learning disability, intellectual disability, cerebral palsy, dementia and hearing loss, as well as other problems that can affect speech and language.” - Speech Pathology Australia
Speech pathologists across Australia use the ReaderPen as assistive technology to help clients with reading difficulties and language processing issues. By reading the words aloud to the user the pen assists with fluency. Fluency is the aspect of speech production that refers to continuity, smoothness, rate, and effort.
The ReaderPen allows the client to hear the words through earphones or the built-in speaker. If required, an external speaker can also be used. The pen can help your client gain independence to read on their own and improve their self-confidence.
