Dr Annie McAuley

Dr Annie McAuley created TalkiPlay to encourage her daughter to speak. Like 1 in 5 children under 5 years old in Australia, her daughter was struggling with a delay in language development. A delay in early language impacts a child’s life literacy skills and confidence to engage in social connections. Annie applied her research background with her own experience of language loss following a traumatic brain injury aged 18 - to create TalkiPlay!

TalkiPlay makes learning language fun for children and simple for parents. Encouraging children to explore their own world to accelerate their language development.
