To change the use of digital tools to give the power, the communication, the creativity and the critical thinking back to our children.
Pam and Betsy have had established individual careers and businesses in education and speech-language pathology respectively. We have both developed proprietary programs.
We began working together ten years ago. Since that time, use of digital technology entertainment devices has risen exponentially. Screens are everywhere: throughout our workplaces, homes, cars, and communities. Children’s use has skyrocketed. Entertainment mediums: handhelds, consoles, computers, TVs have become commonplace.
We noticed a change across the classroom, clinic and home-based practices with our clients and their families. Neuro-typical and atypical children showed reduced face-to-face communication, vocabulary, oral/written narrative, creative play time and trial and error learning. That concerned us, teachers and families which led to the birth of SaySo Communication.
We are re-purposing digital tools to create products that use talking as the controller of game play using digital devices. The children create content.
We’re preparing today’s children for tomorrow’s challenges.

For decades, Betsy Allard has shaped her business towards programs that combine social interaction and positive work/play opportunities across home and community. Connecting children verbally in team challenges through online play is a natural segue for Betsy.
