Clinician's comments on therapy software
Using computers for speech therapy is still a fairly new concept, but clinicians are are very supportive.
"Patients benefit from the repetition of the exercises, Ruth Fink said, and the computer seems to engage them more than if they were just looking at a flash card. The patients like using the computer for therapy, and it is motivating for them"
"Another advantage of using computer-based aphasia therapy is that it ultimately can save the clinician time," remarked Fink. The clinician does not have to score the patients' responses while they are performing the exercise, and the results are easily can be printed for their file.
"This approach to therapy is ideal for the home care clinician," she said. "They can have all their therapy exercises ready to go, loaded onto a laptop computer that is easily transported from home to home."

Conclusions from a clinical study by Dr. Richard Katz
- Computer reading treatment requires only minimal assistance from a clinician
- Improvement on the computer reading tasks generalizes to improvement in language performance
- Improvement results from the language content of the software, not simply stimulation provided by a computer
- The computer reading treatment for aphasia which they employed is efficacious.
