"This is the app that is going to pave the way for converting speech therapists to the digital age." - Ryan Knoblauch, SLP, The Speech Knob GETTING STARTED IS AS EASY AS 1, 2, 3 Target higher-level expressive language, pragmatic, problem-solving, speech, and cognitive-communication goals with open-ended conversation starters. Here’s how it works. 1) CHOOSE YOUR CATEGORIES. Tailor your experience with specific topics like Food or Health, or select all topics for free-flowing discussion that could go anywhere! You can always change the settings to see only age-appropriate categories for children, teens, or adults. 2) START THE CONVERSATION. Look at the picture, then touch any of the 10 buttons to see a question. The questions on the left are simpler (like “What is…?”) while the ones on the right are more complex (“How do you know…?”). Hear the question aloud, record your own audio, and score answers as you go. 3) USE YOUR STRATEGIES. While taking turns discussing the answers to the questions, use your word-finding strategies, smooth speech techniques, or other personalized therapy approaches to communicate more clearly. ALL DONE? E-mail an automatically generated summary of your results, along with any audio, or share the results to a PDF, file storage, printer, or copy/paste.

    I'm an SLP student who just purchased an iPad to use in therapy and I love this app. It can be used in almost any setting in any way. I love that you can use it for higher and lower functioning individuals, and control topics of conversation. Highly recommend.

    This is one of my favorite apps for therapy. I utilize it in the nursing home and with home health patients. It has age appropriate conversation starters and questions applicable to most patients. It makes it easier to facilitate conversation in therapy in place of generating your own conversations. One of my favorite features is that I do not need to be connected to the internet to use the app once I downloaded it to my device. This is a must have for all SLPs!!!!!
  • Versatile app

    This app truly targets so many skills and it allows for varying levels of difficulty. I highly recommend! As with all of Tactus' apps, I love that it can pull double duty and work well with both pediatric and geriatric populations! Social skills? No problem? Higher level thinking questions? Sure! Reminiscing? Absolutely!
  • Excellent!!

    This app is fabulous for developing and practicing conversational skills. Engaging photos within a large number of categories and ten prompts allow the learner to explore a variety of conversational skills and answer inferential questions. I have used this app with my ASD students to encourage them to go beyond requesting so they can learn how to describe, answer questions and comment. Unlike other apps that work on receptive skills (i.e. making choices), this app truly targets expressive ability. Oh, and data collection is included.
  • Excellent app for a range of SLP goals

    I absolutely love Conversation TherAppy. I'm an SLP and have been looking for different apps to target a variety of skills including those related to motor speech, comprehension, expression and verbal problem solving. This app fits the bill on all of those skills and much more. I highly recommend it to other clinicians. The pictures are top quality, the app is intuitive and easy to navigate and extremely thorough.

    I have found this app to be very versatile. I work on the brain injury and stroke units and find that it can be used with patients at all levels. It is really useful for helping to elicit language from patients.
  • Great app for lots of speech goals

    I love conversation therapy and the way it's designed really let's you utilize it to accomplish many goals. I've used it obviously as conversation starters but the variety of prompts provided really give you many options. Also the pictures and prompts in general are targeted to adults and helps preserve dignity in the therapy process by not forcing them to use things that are too child like. I'm a grad student in speech pathology and as I continue in my career I hope to be able to purchase more of these apps. I just wish they were less expensive!
