We are Committed to providing the best technology to promote speech, language and communication

The first step in creating a successful special education company in the EdTech space is understanding that educators live in the age of technology, but the EdTech for special education has been functioning at least two decades behind. This has created a void that allows larger companies, with existing connections to schools, to offer mediocre resources and continue to keep education behind. 

Therapists and educators have sustained Smarty Ears growth with purchases from their own pockets signaling that they see the cost-benefit of Smarty Ears Innovations to their impact.”

Barbara Fernandes, Smarty Ears CEO
