Junganew-About-Logo-v4

From visionary speech and language pathologist, Esther Giordano, MA, CCC-SLP, comes JUNGANEW: A Herd of Sounds, the first in a series of sound acquisition apps for children ages 2-6. Junganew, a land where sounds are represented by characters and their habitats, is the first series where sounds are truly the stars of the show! Come along for an adventure into a beautiful, vibrant world of sounds with the lovable, audible Herd of Sounds – animals whose names represent a unique sound of the English language!

Brought to life using hand crafted interactive watercolor paintings from renowned artist Alina Chau, and Executive Produced by award winning writer & producer Timothy Michael Harrington under his Happy Medium production banner, JUNGANEW: A Herd of Sounds aims to utilize and develop the most engaging immersive technologies to help children get excited about learning their sounds!

I have been a practicing speech language pathologist for the past 18 years. While I have two children of my own, the children that I help have become an extension of my family. My love for children has inspired me to create fun new ways to learn sounds.  As a result, I created the Junganew series of apps as a way to share my experiences with the world…

JUNGANEW: A Herd of Sounds is a strategy based program designed as a series of apps. The first app focuses on the sound of /s/. These apps are intended primarily for the use of children ages 2 to 6 years old, but can be enjoyed by children of all ages and needs.

…I believe that anything is possible. Our children are our present and our future. Just as our characters learn, I hope we all can remember that our journey is as fulfilling as our destination.
