From their story in
the Stroke Connection magazine of
 the National Stroke Association.
 

This program helps patients speak phrases or sentences by prompting them with one or more of the following Cues (hints):

Patients sees a model sentence  and  hears that sentence spoken (in a human voice), then speaks the sentence themselves. Patient then hears their speech, and the model speech for comparison.

With over 400 exercises, patients usually take several months to master the material.  Create your own content, for unlimited, customized therapy (in Pro and Deluxe versions).

Therapy for all skill levels ...

Make the exercises easier or harder by changing which cues are provided: text, spoken model, picture (in picture lessons).  The more cues you choose to have shown, the easier the exercise is. If a cue is not shown, the patient can click on a button to see or hear it.

If the patient also need to watch someone's mouth moving in order to repeat words back clearly (due to severe apraxia, articulation difficulty, etc.) try our apraxia software program Speech Sounds On Cue, which shows them video of how to move their lips and tongue.

Additional Clinical Info

This aphasia & apraxia software is helpful for word-retrieval due to anomia (expressive aphasia), in which the patient has difficulty naming objects or retrieving words. So, if you show them pictures of objects, they have difficulty verbally naming the object.  It's particularly effective for fluent aphasia (also called Wernicke's Aphasia), in which the patient can speak, but much of that speech is in appropriate.  So if you show them a baseball and ask "what is it" they might respond  "round...you throw...you know...the catcher..."
