What is Speech Diary?

Speech Diary is a website built for helping those who experience a speech impediment. It provides several tools that enable a person to track their speech, identify areas of improvement or strength, and to share results to their support network.

While Speech Diary can be used by anyone who wants to improve their speaking, it is recommended to be used while undertaking the Camperdown Program with a professional speech therapist. This website is also used for the maintenance of speech results after therapy. It will allow users to identify when their speech is worsening and to maintain good habits of practice.

Data driven insights and decision are important aspects of Speech Diary. This means that by engaging with the tools available a user can objectively see their progress and challenge any subjective self-perceptions that may get in the way.
