Around 100,000 school students in Maryland face speech and language difficulties throughout their K-12 journey, with schools spending over $150 million per year on speech-language therapy.
AmplioSpeech CEO and founder, Dr. Yair Shapira, met Boyd Rutherford, Lieutenant Governor of Maryland, and his staff to discuss how AmplioSpeech assists Maryland students with accelerated progress and improved academic achievements at reduced costs.
Lieutenant Governor Rutherford emphasized the State’s commitment to improving special education and openness to technological solutions that boost results, as well as financial models that align incentives with outcomes.
The meeting was facilitated by Barry Bogage of the Maryland-Israel Development Center.
AmplioSpeech is headquartered in Rockville, MD, and employs over 100 employees.
