Who We Are

Smarty Ears was founded in December of 2009 by Barbara Fernandes, a practicing Speech-Language Pathologist certified by the American Speech and Hearing Association. Smarty Ears was the first company to create apps geared towards speech therapy for mobile devices. Smarty Ears’ first application, called Smarty Speech, was released in January of 2010 and it has helped many speech therapists to make sessions more dynamic and engaging.

Smarty Ears is officially announcing the phase out of the pay one time fee model for all its assessment apps. We have made the difficult choice to move to a more sustainable pay per use and/or subscription model on all our assessment apps. This transition has already been implemented with two of our apps: iTap and AAT. We have implemented the switch differently with each app and we would like to explain in detail our decision and what it means to you.

Over the years I have had the pleasure to create over 50 apps that have helped not only the children of friends of mine but also children of millions of strangers world wide. Four years ago I had the inspiration to crate the first app designed to help my young son, Victor, who at the time was only 1 year old. I created a published, GoWords, which was a simple app designed to support his vocabulary development in both English and Portuguese.
