We have launched a new project
to help people who stutter!

iCanSpeak is a deeply personal project. It comes from years of sharing the challenges of someone who stutters, and looking for anything you can do to help.

The iCanSpeak project started with individual speech therapy in 1992, and progressed to some custom software running on a desktop computer by 1999. In 2003 iCanSpeak evolved to running on an early smart phone, and now with version 2.0 in 2017, it has become a full suite of tools running on an iPhone. 

Live provides help on a daily basis, Techniques will provide exercises for working with a Speech Language Pathologist, and Care will provide ways to gather data and work with a Speech Language Pathologist remotely.

All of these tools lead to some very interesting options for Research, and we would love to hear from potential research partners and participants.

iCanSpeak is an iOS App that is designed to help people who stutter become more fluent during every day speech.

Live uses the power and portability of an iPhone to provide for real time altered audio feedback (AAF) to simulate choral speaking and assist in short term daily fluency.

LIve is part of v2.0 and is in the App Store for free.

Techniques provides sets of exercises run on an iPhone, to be used with a Speech Language Pathologist to help assist a user with fluency techniques. These techniques are designed to create longer term fluency.

Techniques is part of v2.1 released in December, 2107, and is free.

Care will provide a set of tools for a Speech Language Pathologist to assign and securely monitor speech exercises that a user can do remotely on an iPhone. These techniques will help create longer term fluency.

Care will be part of v2.2 in March 2018.

Research will provide ways for researchers to securely and anonymously access the data created by the Care module. The long term intent of the research module is to increase understanding of tools and techniques that help people who stutter.

We are currently looking for research partners for projects starting in March 2018.
