Like most of Smarty Ears technologies, Speech and Language Academy (SLA) was built with the speech therapists in mind. Speech Pathologists can purchase their own access to our technology and content library. Schools, Clinics, Teletherapy speech therapy Businesses can also purchase an Organization Access to SLA which would give the organization a way to purchase seats for all their therapists and all the students that they serve.

I already love smarty Ears apps. How are they related to speech and Language academy?

Smarty Ears started as a company that created the first apps for speech therapy on the market. We are very proud of that! We still love our apps on iPads. However, it had a limitation as most people own computers. It was also limited by the fact that SLPs had to purchase apps one by one in order to gain access to all of our content. That's why we moved to a platform that can be used on any device connected to the Internet. The same Smarty Ears apps you love, now on one inclusive price.
