Caring for more children, earlier and better!
ELMo is a mobile app that captures the child's speech-language at their best in a natural and familiar environment. ELMo sends the video recording to the Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP) before their first appointment, during assessment or during therapy follow-up sessions.
Why choose Elmo
ELMo decreases the assessment time required for the SLP to diagnose the child's problem. Hence, it allows the SLP to see more patients .
A child does not always express themselves best in an unfamiliar environment, such as a clinic. By using ELMo, you increase the quality of the speech-language assessment and therapy by capturing the child in their natural environment, such as their home.
ELMo increases parents' involvement and partnership with SLPs in their child speech-language diagnostic assessment and treatment.
