What our experts think
The easy to use Voice Pad encourages children to communicate and listen to the sounds they make. Our testers had lots of fun looking in the mirror and making a sound as they recorded it. This is great for helping children’s speech and language practice, as they can see the shape their mouth and tongue is making – for example when making sounds such as ‘th’ or ‘l’.
Our testers also loved using the Voice Pad in their imaginative role play. Some of the children pretended to be wildlife presenters outside, while others used it in their shop role play as a shop announcement, which had some hilarious results! The children were also encouraged to record a message for each other, which we found great for developing their social and communication skills, as it allowed them to listen, respond and share.
