This study investigates the common perception of the use of preliminary language rehabilitation as a basic study to demonstrate the usefulness of media utilisation in language therapy. Based on the previous research, data were collected for 150 preliminary language rehabilitation workers and 142 questionnaires were used for data analysis. The study found that the perception of media usage in pre-language rehabilitation was necessary for language development and was also positive about the treatment. The use of media has been recognised as helpful in promoting attention, cognitive and creativity development. Also, the use of media as a treatment tool was agreed to, but it was recognized that the rules for utilizing the media were necessary and needed to know the proper site or program. Therefore, it was suggested that the development of sites and programs that can be used for language therapy is necessary.
