Based on technology developed by TalkTools, Yanin Alexa Kramsky, an industrial designer, creates iTok. It is an iPhone accessory to help speech therapists introduce letters and sounds to children with speech disorders. iTok design focuses on 3 main goals: reduce material waste, provide data for insurance companies to cover the costs of therapy sessions, and increase face-to-face sessions between therapists and the children.

Children need to blow a series of mouthpieces where each one represents specific letters and sounds. The sensor built into the iPhone’s microphone will record the airflow patterns. An animation appears on screen with audio and visual feedback that reinforces the correct pronunciation and use of each sound.
Using iTok, the designer proposes a simple language learning tools to eliminate the need of paper records through digital archiving. The other benefits would be the increasing face-time between speech therapists, children with language learning disorders and their parents through smartphone technology, using this platform, it’s possible for parents and therapists to digitally exchange data prior to sessions.
