We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to access affordable speech therapy tools wherever they are.
Sam Brady qualified as a Speech and Language Therapist in 2001 (PGDip, City University) and gained her Masters in Speech and Language Therapy in 2006 (MSc, City University). During her career, Sam has specialised in working with adults with neurological and voice difficulties in hospital, outpatient and community settings. She currently splits her time between working for the NHS, in independent practice and creating speech therapy apps.
Garry Brady has been developing market leading software for over 20 years and over 6 years for iOS and Android mobile apps. He has also designed and written audio engines for video games which have reached the top of the sales charts. He has developed software on a wide range of platforms from video games consoles and consumer electronics to multi million dollar enterprise products and it is this experience which enables him to develop concurrently for both iOS and Android.
In 2010, Sam was working with a gentleman with Parkinson’s Disease who spoke at a fast rate. She wanted to trial delayed auditory feedback (DAF) with him to see if he could speak more slowly and be clearer to understand. Unfortunately, the DAF technology was bulky, fiddly, expensive and sparsely available at that time.
Garry Brady, heard Sam’s frustrations around using the old technology and decided to re-create it on a more compact, accessible and affordable devise - a mobile phone. Soon, our first app, DAF Pro, was born and Sam could now trial delayed auditory feedback immediately with her patients wherever she worked.
Since then we have designed and created 4 further apps all of which greatly enhance Sam’s work as a Speech and Language Therapist and are now used in Speech Therapist clinics and in people’s homes across the world.
We have now been developing apps for over 6 years.
