Description

Comprehension Therapy is a professional speech therapy app that targets auditory and reading comprehension of single words in 5 languages. *****Enlightening! ***** Superb! ***** A Wonderful Tool! ***** Exceptional App! Designed to help people with aphasia and cognitive deficits from stroke and other brain injuries, it is also a valuable tool for older children with special needs including autism. 3 user-friendly modes include Listen, Read, and Listen&Read to target individualized goals. The app automatically adjusts difficulty based on performance, allowing for independent practice. Built-in scoring, hints, and a results summary that can be e-mailed to the therapist in report format make therapy easy! Over 500 nouns, 100 verbs, and 100 adjectives are paired with full-color photographs, recorded voice, and clear text for hours of therapy. You can add your own images too! **Try it for FREE as part of Language Therapy Lite or buy this app in our 4-in-1 Language Therapy*** Features 3 modes: - "Listen": match an auditory stimulus (spoken word) to a picture - "Read": match a written stimulus (printed word) to a picture - "Listen & Read": match an auditory stimulus (spoken word) to a written word Over 700 clear full-color photographs of functional vocabulary selected by a Speech-Language Pathologist 10 categories of nouns including animals, foods, objects, concepts, places, people, body parts and more; select which categories are targeted Select from 2, 3, 4, or 6 photos on the screen or use the "Auto" feature to automatically adjust the field size based on performance 3 levels of difficulty adjust the relatedness of foils (semantic and phonemic) to move from Easy to Hard Aphasia-friendly interface avoids use of professional jargon and features clear symbols for independent use by children and adults Child-friendly mode eliminates references to alcohol and violence as well as disables links to outside sites (iTunes & social media) Real recorded voice provides 5 choices of languages with neutral accent in slow, natural speech for easy comprehension in English (US/Canada), English (UK), Spanish, German, and French Smooth and automatic transitions to the next set allow for multiple repetitions in far less time than it takes to select and lay out photo flash cards, while still allowing you to move forward and back to review answers or skip ahead Automatic scoring tracks success and progress on-screen Results can be e-mailed in table and report-ready format so clients can keep their therapist informed of their progress for telepractice and therapists can send results to themselves for charting later, using the copy-and-paste ready format to decrease documentation time All Tactus Therapy Solutions Apps participate in the 50% off Volume Purchase Program, so talk to your school about buying in bulk!

  • Nice App!

    This is a nice app for basic listening comprehension presented in three formats to change up the requirements and difficulty. I am using it with two specific patients who present with aphasia, and although both are moderate for comprehension issues and expression, they are sailing through the app without too much difficulty. I'm hoping that your developers will consider making the words more complex, branch into phrasing (although then it may be like your reading app) or consider difficulty levels for milder CVA's, TBI, post concussion syndrome, etc. Thanks in advance!

    I use this for my Autism kiddos and they think its a game! It's a great, fun way to drill and kill and it takes data for you! It also lets you customize and chose what cards you want on display and how many.
  • More functional than carrying card decks!

    In the acute care setting, we don't often have the time to complete full standardized testing with our patients. This app not only is able to help me assess patient's functioning level, it helps me do it in several languages. No longer do I have to rely on my elementary bi-lingual skills. As if that's not enough, the app completes the evaluation write up for me! It has been a huge time saver for me personally. Our department is now looking at purchasing an iPad specifically for the TherAppy apps. I also strongly recommend this to patients following discharge for carryover activities. By having them email me the summary, I can evaluate progress without having to see the patient. I've used this app with pediatrics, adults, and geriatrics. Across the board, the most common response is "More iPad, please!" Lindsey, M.S., CCC/SLP

    I use this app as an SLP in the schools. It’s very flexible so it can be adjusted for each student according to need and is also nice for probing receptive vocabulary skills. The pictures are high quality photographs of FUNCTIONAL vocabulary. The options for customization include difficulty, number of trials, child-friendly, and field size. Data collection is included and can be emailed to track progress. There are no longer in-app expansion packs available for verbs and adjectives...even better...since the last update, they are included! This is a nice app for SLPs in school or medical seeting.

    My 4 year old son has autism and has made so much progress on the iPad showing his ability to make choices in games, that I wanted an app that did more. Comprehension TherAppy is just what I was looking for. There are three ways to "play" (or test) -Listen, Read, and Listen & Read and then you have three more choices, Nouns (included in original purchase), Verbs (in App purchase for $3.99), and Adjectives (in-App purchase $3.99). In settings, Language choices are available (English, English UK, Spanish) as well as Difficulty, Field size, number of trials (10, 25, 50, 100, or infinity), email address for results, and child-friendly mode. In Listen, unlabeled pictures are presented and a professional narrator calls one word. The correct choice of picture results in a "ting" and an incorrect choice is given a hollow two-beat "drum" sound. Both are reinforced by color of red for wrong and green for correct. Here is where I am in love with this app. No matter how far your child proceeds in the trial, statistics are generated and you are prompted to email results. In Read, unlabeled pictures are presented and this time a single word text is visible. No audio prompts except for correct/incorrect reinforcers. In Listen & Read, three words without pictures are presented and an audio word is presented. This is an app that will grow with my son's abilities thanks to numerous settings options. It also gives me tangible data. As a side note, I learned something interesting while using this app with my son. I was able to notice how he approached his answers, and found that he was making choices based on begining word sounds..for instance, he would choose "beach" when asked for "bench". When I realized this, I encouraged him to hit the "repeat" option to hear the word again and a correct choice would be made. Lovely app and I can't wait to see what Tactus comes up with next!

    Was so happy to find this app, the only problem we have is we cannot purchase the addon libraries on iTunes and school blocks us from in app purchases. Love the ability to use this in more than one language and to adjust for each student . Also love the data keeping piece!

    I use this app on a daily basis as a Speech-Language Pathologist in the public schools and a private clinic. It's great for monitoring receptive vocabulary of adults and children. I've also used it with children that speak English as a second language. All the different options make it flexible for many different skill levels. Looking forward to incorporating the new apps into my therapy sessions.
