Aphasia Therapy Software
Proven, effective speech therapy software developed by speech therapists.
Between the speech therapists and the Bungalow Software, my husband John is doing so well that he is able to communicate his wants and needs by speech. The speech therapists said that your aphasia therapy software has helped John progress to this level of speech."

Faster Recovery With Aphasia Therapy Software
Without sufficient therapy patients often do not improve, and they may worsen, as shown in this graph of the results of a clinical study of aphasia software.
Clinical studies show that software-based treatment can speed recovery enormously by providing the practice and repetition that researchers agree helps recovery.
Aphasia Tutor's multiple difficulty levels and feedback ensure success...The patient never walks away [from the program] discouraged."
Candace Gordon, Speech Pathologist
Former Clinic Supervisor, Portland State Speech and Science Program.
I teach at a University and love the concept of your company. Therapy is so much more effective when clients can follow through with it at home.
"Bungalow is a wonderful addition and supplement to our field, and a wonderful resource for our clients."

Patients and speech therapists have used Bungalow's speech therapy software for unlimited rehabilitation from aphasia (and other speech-language disorders) in the home and clinic since 1995. Aphasia can affect speech and writing and/or understanding language (auditory comprehension and reading comprehension) and Bungalow has programs for each of these, listed below, or click a button below to view our catalog, etc.
Anomia impairs word-retrieval (recalling words or names) and usually affects both speech & writing . The programs below (for speech & writing) are listed in order of difficulty.
- Aphasia Tutor 1: Words -For learning letters & words and written naming. Also available in an Out Loud version that speaks the letters and words in a human voice.
- Aphasia Tutor 2: Sentences -Sentence completion and word retrieval. Also available in an Out Loud version that speaks the sentences aloud in a human voice.
- Sights'n Sounds 1 - Verbal naming (spoken word retrieval) and oral reading at the word level.
- Numbers'n Sounds - Reading numbers aloud.
- Synonyms, Antonyms, & Homonyms - Matching and written word retrieval.
- Sights'n Sounds 2 - For speech production and articulation at the sentence level. Records patient's voice and plays it back along with a model sentence for comparison.
- SentenceShaper 2 helps those with aphasia bridge the gap from being able to say only single words or phrase to speaking in sentences and telling stories. This is a great sequel to Sights'n Sounds 2 above.
Reading Comprehension Therapy Software
Less frustration. More effective therapy.
One major obstacle to recovery is challenging the patient without frustrating them. If it's too challenging they won't be able to finish the exercises and become frustrated. If it's not challenging enough they won't retain what they are learning and may become bored.
The Bungalow programs do more than simply grade the patient and show the correct answer. If the patient answers incorrectly, they usually get a hint (perhaps an explanation of what they did wrong, or the first letter of the answer). These hints, combined with many different skill levels (as many as 200) in each program allows patients to work a more challenging level without becoming frustrated. Studies have shown this leads to better retention of what they've learned. Read more about how it works >>

About Bungalow Software
Bungalow Software creates and sells software for Speech & Language therapy. It was started in 1995 by Clay Nichols & Terri Brancewicz
. Most of the programs on this website were developed by Clay and Terri. Terri, a speech pathologist, wanted programs for her patients to use independently at home for home speech therapy practice. She turned to Clay who created the programs. And then she asked for more. And more. Today, Bungalow serves thousands of customers around the world and has distributors in the USA, Europe, and Australia. Read more >>
Bungalow has been featured in the Stroke Connection magazine and on the national and regional news and has presented seminars at the national ASHA Speech-Language Pathology conferences.
