Speech Sounds Milestones for Boys and Girls By Age

"Sharing resources is an empowering strategy for enhancing our capacity to serve."
- Marnee Brick, TinyEYE Co-Founder & President


What speech, or letter sounds should my child be able to make? To determine whether a child needs speech therapy, one of the assessments therapist make is a child's speech production at the word and sentence letter. The therapist then considers the types of errors the child makes, the frequency of letters and the child's age to help determine whether your child should be recommended for speech therapy.

4 Common Misconceptions of Online Therapy: Busted

Posted by TinyEYE |

With the increased adoption of technology within schools across North America, it leaves one to wonder how this is impacting our youth. It seems that everywhere we turn there’s no getting away from there is a new technology. Like it or not, the future is here…along with the list of critics opposed to this shift. For those who have already opened their doors to online therapy (also known as telepractice), the ability to serve students with speech and occupational therapy disorders has shone through as paramount. It is our hope that the Speech-Language Pathology and Occupational Therapy community become educated on the vast benefits this new form of delivery provides through the use of traditional telepractice, as well as the next generation of telepractice in introducing robot doubles to the classroom.

When Worlds Collide: TinyEYE Therapy Services Brings Robots into the Classroom

Posted by TinyEYE |

Has your school ever been in a situation where hiring is so difficult that you can’t even fill your teaching staff, let alone your educational assistant and therapy staff? Such was the case in Wilmac, North Dakota in late 2013. Greg, TinyEYE’s CEO and Cofounder was speaking Director Shawn Huss about their speech and occupational therapy needs for the following year, when Huss mentioned that none of this could possibly work, as they did not have anyone hired to be the school’s EA. Greg quickly responded, “How about a robot?” and the future was born.

Wilmac schools have been using their robot to bring students back and forth from class ever since that day. “We ran into a few problems at first,” Greg stated, “One of which being that the teachers couldn’t actually tell when the robot was at the door to the classroom. No one could reach out and knock for it. This resulted in the robot’s driver actually driving the robot into the door repeatedly, until someone noticed that it was there. It was quite funny.” Since then, other methods have been taken to ensure that the classroom teachers are aware of the robot’s arrival.
