  • Comments Off on Speech Science Speech-Language Pathology Everyone Can Understand On Patreon

The majority of the time when I write about a Patreon user it usually falls under the entertainment category, but today I’m going to write about a Patreon organization looking to fund something more important. The name of the Patreon crowdfunding campaign is SpeechScience. They are made up of a group of all volunteer pediatric Speech-Language Pathologists who provide podcasts/blogs/video education on things like children on the Autism spectrum, kids with rare genetic disorders, augmentative and alternative communication, etc. The SpeechScience altruistic effort needs to spread the word and get Patreon support visit:

SpeechScience begin back in 2009 with a series of blogs called “This Month in Speech Science.” In those blog posts, cofounder and CEO Lucas Steuber wrote to help others understand the primary literature behind things like Speech-Language Pathology, pervasive developmental disorders like Autism, Augmentative and Alternative Communication, and more.

Speech Science today provides resources such as podcasts, blogs, and videos. Their podcast for example is hugely successful. So far the team has produced three podcasts shows titled “Swallow Your Pride” on feeding and swallowing disorders; one called “Talking With Tech” focused on technology in special education, and the final podcast or “core” focuses on issues in Speech-Language Pathology and interdisciplinary concerns. These podcasts have already generated a total of 100,000 downloads! Not a small accomplishment for just three podcasts.

There is a podcast for everything, they go in depth and are well reviewed on iTunes. Check all three podcasts out they are well worth your time.

Speech Science also has an app on Amazon’s Alexa. It shares speech facts to users.

Why They Set Up Campaign? 

“Our initial funds are gone, as is our ability to keep up with demand for content. We need help – editors, writers, clinicians, IT staff, and more. We will NEVER give up; we simply need to raise capacity, and recognize that by doing so we can have a much bigger footprint on the population we serve.”

They have a good problem in that they are growing fast, but to keep up with the demand they need funding. To make matters more difficult Speech Science is very selective with the funding they take. The last thing they want to do is compromise their mission or become beholden to an advertiser for example.

What Are The Rewards?

The goal of this campaign shouldn’t be to get a reward, it should be to help, but still Speech Science provides great rewards for this campaign.

$1 level gets you a big thanks from SpeedScience, $5 per month gets your name posted as a sponsor on their web site and the ability to contact them at any time with technical or academic questions. $10 or more per month gets you previous benefits plus a Patreon only audio/video feed, additional material from celebrity and academic interviews, and much more. Not only that, you’ll receive a free month’s subscription to The Informed SLP. The rewards go all the way up to $500 or more per month. $500 gets you all previous rewards plus get a guarantee that every single month you will fund either an augmentative communication device, a full swallowing/dysphagia study, or $500 of therapy for a student in need.


Speech Science is counting on you. “Maybe our only mission, is to shed back a bit of that horror – that darkness – and share information that is evidence-based, efficacious, and couched with a bit of humor to dull what can otherwise be a punishing world.” Sign up only takes minute and donate anything from $1 to their $500+ level. Becoming a patron will make a difference.

Remember all those great movies you saw as a kid? I fondly remember movies like Indian Jones And The Temple Of Doom, The Goonies, Jurassic Park, Batman, and Independence Day just to name a few. There are few things I remember as vividly as films I watched as a kid. That’s when I heard there is a Podcast about movies watched growing up I had to write about it.

The name of the Podcast is ‘I Seen That’ where Taylor and Allen discuss their favorite formative years movies. Taylor and Allen have been best friends since 3rd grade (1997) and during that time both of them have loved movies and TV shows, but could never agree on which ones were good. Now 20 years later Taylor and Allen still disagree. They love making the podcast, but need Patreon to make it better.

Support Taylor and Allen: https://www.patreon.com/Iseenthat

What’s also interesting about the Podcast is as one grows up your tastes in movies changes. So how do you discuss a movie that you once thought was good, but now think is horrible? I would think all the kids watching and liking the Michael Bay Transformers will eventually have that reaction.

I Seen That Podcast

Are There Any Rewards?

Yes, there are several Patreon rewards for this campaign. $1 gets you access to the Podcasts a whole week early. $5 lets you suggest a movie. $10 gets you an exclusive Podcast.

Help Taylor and Allen of ‘I See That’ reach their Patreon goal today.

The website which is managed by these two pioneers has attracted people that lead diverse lifestyles and have different values to set up their own radio stations. The setting up process is simple and is done by making a call and following the instructions given on the user’s computer. When the station has been set up the content needed to sustain the show is provided by the host, who needs to have prepared in advance so that the subject is interesting resulting in the attraction of new listeners and appropriately covering of the time slots allocated. When stations are run successfully, they attract advertisers from which the administrators of Blog Talk Radio earn revenue.

The many listeners who tune in to radio stations on Blog TalkRadio are able to join in conversations and even ask questions as long as the station is live. To be able to be part of the conversation on a radio show, listeners can call in online or place a call through a chat line, which they can also use to interact with people using other lines as well. Furthermore, the users of Blog TalkRadio can able to regulate their chat line so that the information passed is done in moderation or blocked altogether.

Blog TalKRadio in the recent years has been upgraded in terms of features which gave the website an improved look. The new features that were part of the upgrade included the overall design which was done in a way that focused on getting visitors to the site and have them listen to the shows on the site. Furthermore, an approach that is streamlined in regard to the enhancements that are a part of Blog TalkRadio helps in the subscription to applications such as iTunes which improve the use of the website. These subscriptions are beneficial for both the host of the show and the management of Blog TalkRadio.

Nevertheless, initially critics of Blog TalkRadio saw the use of telephone exclusively by the host to connect to the listeners as limiting and would suggest the broadcasting of shows directly from the computer. Furthermore, there seems to be competition that is building up from websites that offer video as part of their content apart from audio. Overall, sites such as Blog Talkradio are still popular even though they only allow their users to broadcast through audio channels.
