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.

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.

"I think it is the greatest thing since Apple Pie! You have anticipated all the questions and the problems. It is easy to use and anyone with a spouse who is willing to guide them or the ability to comprehend themselves ,can use it and derive satisfaction from using the programs. "

"I wanted to write and tell you that your software has excited my father beyond belief! My Dad had a stroke and suffers from aphasia.
I ordered the Aphasia Tutor software last week and had my Dad up for Thanksgiving. I 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. Many thanks once again."
