Welcome to the next post in our series of Product Snapshots in the Australian healthtech sector.
Say hello to Spokle.
In one sentence, describe your product?
Spokle is a speech therapy app to equip parents with strategies and guided activities to support their child's communication development.
What industry challenges is Spokle tackling?
Limited access to speech therapy services in under-served communities and developing countries due to the limited number of professionals, distance and cost of treatment.
What makes Spokle unique in the market?
Spokle designs effective speech therapy strategies for parents and delivers them in an affordable, accessible, video-guided format through a mobile app.
Our approach is centred on promoting family involvement in the child's therapy through home practice and facilitating collaboration with their therapist through a progress sharing feature in the app.
What is the biggest risk to your company?
Market readiness is a risk, as the uptake of digital platforms as a delivery model for health services like speech therapy is still in its infancy in many countries.
What does success look like for Spokle?
A successful outcome for us would be when Spokle becomes an integral part of the speech & language intervention pathway for children with communication challenges globally, and there is a measurable impact on the individuals and their families who use Spokle app in their confidence and ability to actively participate in their community.
Why should a customer use Spokle?
Combining Spokle home practice with clinic-based therapy can increase the likelihood of children achieving their speech therapy goals. For children to develop a skill, they need constant practice with people they trust and in an environment that is familiar to them.
Parents need information and guidance from professionals on what they can do outside of therapy appointments to support their child's development. Spokle makes that task easier by teaching parents effective communication strategies and activities they can do at home
