Features

Like all Bungalow programs, Aphasia Tutor 1 provides hints and feedback to help guide the patient to the right answer. Our approach is "Success with as little assistance as needed."  The goal is for the patient to do it as independently as possible.
  • Hints
    User can click on the Hints button or press the <control> key on the keyboard to receive a hint in the fill-in-the-blank levels. E.g., if the answer was "Spoon" the hint would be "s_ _ _ _"
  • Clear feedback for correct/incorrect answers.
  • Use the mouse or keyboard
  • Multiple difficulty levels beginning with multiple choice single-letters, all the way to fill-in-the-blank words. 
  • Spanish version
    Available in a Spanish version that has the cues and answers in Spanish. Patient would pick a Spanish word for "orange" (naranjo) or type that in as the answer.

     

Deluxe Version Features

These features are available in the Deluxe and Pro versions of the program.
  • Get more therapy with extra difficulty options. Show the first letter of the answer or reduce the number of choices to make the program easier, or give fewer hints to make it harder.
  • Motivate the patient by showing them how well they're doing with automatic progress tracking which saves the results of each session are saved, to a file.  You can print this or copy it into other documentation.  Limited to a single patient. For unlimited patients, see Pro version
  • Make faster progress with repetition practice.
    Repeat the first 20 questions 5 times, or repeat as many questions as you like as many times as you like.  You can also control the length of the lesson without repetition, such as having a 25 exercise lesson.  (Bungalow programs have so many exercises we've found that even one lesson can be too much for a patient to do in one sitting.
  • Do memory training. You can set the program to display the cue to display temporarily or until they press any key.  Then the cue disappears, and the question appears.
  • Auditory comprehension Practice

    Program can speak a cue ("New York is called the big ____") and have the patient answer the question from hearing it.  Deluxe and Pro versions let you turn off the visual cue (text or picture) and have the audio cue played automatically.

    You just open the patient's Bungalow file and paste in their scores (results) from several sessions to demonstrate progress during therapy.

  • Automatically remembers settings for each patient

    So, when Mr. Jones comes back in for his next visit, you just select Mr. Jones and the program remembers how he did last time, what lesson he was using, and what settings you used for him.
