At Tactus Therapy, we believe all people should get the therapy they need. We make affordable apps that let you decide when you want to practice and for how long. Now our apps are more accessible than ever as we proudly announce that our best-selling Language Therapy 4-in-1 app is now available for Android devices.
You can now use any of the 4 apps that make up Language Therapy on your Android tablet or smartphone, Amazon Fire tablet, or Apple touchscreen device. Simply download the app from the right app store for your device: Google Play, Amazon App Store, or iTunes App Store.
All of these evidence-based apps work the same way on each device. They all have full localization and translated tracks for Spanish, French, German, and English (US and UK variations). They have full customization to add your own items or select only the ones you want from the thousands of exercises included. With each app, you get beautifully clear photos, real human speech, and automated scoring with detailed reports. And once you buy an app, it’s yours forever – no costly subscriptions or data connection required.
A scientific study just published in the peer-reviewed journal Neuropsychological Rehabilitation shows that daily use of Language Therapy can make significant improvements in chronic aphasia!
