Called Childchat, the App gives parents access to resources, support, guides and local contacts.

Parents can also document, record and analyze the speech and language development of their children, media reports said.

"The idea is that with the easily accessible resources, support and contacts at their fingertips, parents will ask for advice or help earlier on," Kristi Rabbitt, a speech and language therapy student at the University of Canterbury in New Zealand, was quoted as saying.

The App will save parents from visiting the internet or read books for such information, she added.
