Can Other Speech Disorders Benefit?

Stroke or brain injury with language impairment

  • Time-Online courses aim primarily at loss of speech clarity due to muscle weakness (dysarthria) or co-ordination. However, they are also an excellent resource if you have difficulty initiating words (apraxia) or word finding difficulty (aphasia) following stroke.
  • Constant ‘listen-and-repeat’ practice with the many hours of exercises can help restore vocabulary and articulation pathways.

Additional practice for any speech disorder

  • Use the exercises as an additional therapy resource.

Note that those with language impairment may need assistance navigating through their course.

A Flexible Course To
Suit Your Needs

Forget general courses that give all students the same speech sounds to study. Every speaker has a different set of problem sounds and issues.

With Time-Online, you may custom-design a course for your own individual speech sound errors or keep it simple. Choose the method that suits you best:

  1. Keep it simple with a Typical Error List
    • Select the UNIVERSAL IMPAIRED SPEECH LIST for overall speech improvement
    • Or, select the SOUND ERROR FOCUS LIST if you have just one or two common errors i.e. /th/ /r/ /s/ /l/ or /-ing/
  2. Identify your own personal errors with the short Screening Test
    • tailor your course to ensure your weakest sounds are included
  3. Pick your study sounds at random
    • ideal if you already know the sounds you need to study or a speech therapist has identified these for you

You’ll be guided every step of the way. Your masterclass videos and audio exercises will focus on the sounds you need to study.
