An Introduction to the Spokle App

“I have no idea what I am supposed to be doing at home.”

“I wish I knew how to handle him when he gets out of control.”

“I avoid public settings as much as possible.”

“My child struggles in school and in making friends.”

“I don’t know where to go for trusted help.”

"I expected some improvement after using Spokle App, but never expected to see progress so quickly! After doing Spokle I am more sensitive to my son’s response.” -- Mei, parent

“Excellent and very useful App, and it can be implemented at school. I have a better understanding of how to manage children with special needs.. The App is great, easy to understand by watching practical instructions as shown on the video.” -- Sophia, School Teacher

Spokle App is a mobile application that is founded on clinical best practices from Australia and New Zealand to help develop spoken language. The Spokle mobile app provides an easy to follow, self-paced program with clear learning goals and targets specific communication skills. The programs are progressive, building on foundation skills to more advanced speech and language abilities.

Learn more about Spokle during an interactive live session with its designers. The first 25 paid attendees will be given FREE ACCESS to the Spokle app. Have an hour and a half tutorial on how to use it and have a live Q&A and “mentoring” session with one its designers, Gia Kuek, Speech Language Therapist and Sensory Integration Therapist.

In 1996, Gia never imagined that having a son go deaf would take her on a path of adventure, from becoming an “accidental speech language therapist”, to now helping families around the world as a Communication and Sensory Integration expert. Ten years later, she and her family moved to New Zealand where she earned a degree in Speech Language Therapy from the University of Canterbury and provided speech therapy and literacy at various schools including the Atlanta Speech School in the USA. Gia is also a certified Sensory Integration therapist.

She works with a variety of ages and disabilities, ranging from hearing impairment, language delay, processing disorders, learning disabilities, cerebral palsy, autism spectrum disorder and brain injuries.
