Esther Giordano Creator | MA, CCC-SLP
I have been a practicing speech language pathologist for over 25 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. As a result, I created the Junganew book and app as a way to share my experiences and teaching techniques with the world.Esther Giordano, MA, CCC-SLP
Brought to life using hand crafted interactive watercolor paintings from renowned artist Alina Chau. (OMIT ALL TIM) Junganew: A Herd of Sounds aims to utilize and develop the most engaging immersive storytelling (omit technologies) to help children get excited about learning their sounds.
…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.Esther Giordano, MA, CCC-SLP
