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

The first step in creating a successful speech therapy software company in the EdTech space is understanding that educators live in the age of technology, but the market functions 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. Smaller speech therapy platform businesses, such as Smarty Ears, end up caught in the paradigm of creating innovation with tele practice for SLPs that finally brings education to the current timeline, but is dependent on organic growth without larger capital for sales infrastructure.

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