The program from your company is going to open new doors for my husband Bill "
-Janet A., caregiver, Massachusetts
My name is Chris Wise, I am 43 years old, my stroke was June 30, 2007 and 4 more strokes. After my stroke, my wife found an program (software) Bungalow. My speech therapist told me that after 3 months it would not improve, I would not get a job, or a license, no math etc. My wife, she purchased Bungalow (Speech Sounds On Cue, Numbers 'n Sounds, Aphasia Tutor 1/2, etc). I could not talk, other than saying "Bird". As soon as I got the software, I worked on Bungalow, 8 hours + a day EVERYDAY. It was hard, for Bungalow, I was tired of it. I was giving up!!! Then, I came back to get some more training. Now, I have a good job, 2 cars Ford Explorer and a 1957 Bel Air. I even have some math courses completed. Thank you Bungalow, everyone (if you need to get approval needed to get a success stories PLEASE DO!) *do not, again DO NOT give up*.
Clay, I wanted to write and tell you that your software has excited my father beyond belief!
My Dad was in a car accident over twelve years ago, then had a stroke and spent a great deal of time in a rehab hospital. He suffers from aphasia and a host of other maladies but lives by himself and does very well for a person suffering the disabilities he has.
I ordered the Aphasia Tutor software last week and had my Dad up for Thanksgiving. I loaded the software on my home PC, showed him the basics of using it and off he went! He was pumped! I have for years looked for software that isn't childlike, presents just the correct amount of challenge and STILL notifies him, in a very subtle manner, that he has made a mistake (or, better yet, that he has not made an error and did get the question correct).
I had just about given up when I found your Bungalow software on the Internet and ordered the Aphasia CD. I wanted you to know that your software is great, your literature is great and that you all are providing what I consider to be a very valuable and needed solution for folks who like, and need, to continue learning pretty much on their own. My Dad now has the software loaded on his PC and I have no doubt that he'll be using it every day for quite awhile. He and I agreed that he'd get used to using the programs/lessons (along with becoming familiar with the computer and mouse once again) and then we'd look into purchasing additional lessons.
I thank you for caring enough about people such as my father who need these types of programs to create the software and market it. It certainly made his day and I foresee him using this a great deal. Although I have no idea if this will assist my father with his aphasia, I do know that he will certainly enjoy sitting down and going through each lesson."
-Many thanks once again. Tim Wharton, caregiver
This software is changing our lives and giving Frank [a stroke survivor] such newfound self esteem."
We've had a breakthrough with Direction Following Plus. My son really enjoys it. All the programs are great
-Elizabeth Brockman, caregiver, Washington
I just want you to know how thrilled I am with the Bungalow software. My father had a massive stroke which severely affected his speech center. He was in the hospital for five months and during this time he received speech therapy. I can say with confidence that Dad has made more progress in the three weeks we have been working with the Bungalow software... Dad is progressing much faster than I thought he would and is enjoying his time in "speech therapy with the computer" Now he actually looks forward to his therapy time. I recommend anyone with aphasia or brain injury look at this program and try it out to see for themselves how effective it is."
-Dr. Kathryn Dykman, M.D

I wanted my parents actively doing something to improve their lives. ... my Dad had been losing more of his communication skills lately. He needed more practice. Your products seemed to fit the bill perfectly. I am sure my father will benefit greatly from your software. Once again, thank you!"

With the monetary challenges we face with managed care and prospective payment, it is important to find more efficient ways to complete the educational and clerical tasks of our service and put it back into actual time spent with our patients. These programs do exactly that!"
