Asking Therapy helps people learn how to ask the right questions to get the answers they need.

Struggling to get questions across during conversations means people who have suffered a stroke or other brain injury are limited in their ability to discover new information, ask for clarification, and request assistance.

Asking Therapy, a professional speech therapy app, provides four unique activities to help users understand and use proper verb tenses for yes/no questions and select the correct question-starting word for Wh-questions. It is perfect for independent and guided practice.

  • 4 unique activities: Investigate, Yes/No, Wh, and Spinner
  • 3 response modes: Receptive, Generator & Expressive
  • All questions asked by the user are given answers
  • User Hub tracks multiple users and scores over time
  • Data tracking and storage for multiple users
  • So many settings to fully customize to each user’s needs

Benefits for the Speech-Language Professional

  • Focus on the often-neglected skill of asking questions
  • • Start with Investigate for the client to learn how asking questions earns answers
    • Create your own activity with the Question Spinner

  • Exercises help focus on syntax for clients with aphasia
  • • The Generator response mode lets clients exercise grammar silently
    • Work at one level at a time to improve sentence structure

  • Functional, real-life situations encourage problem solving
  • • Yes/No questions encourage clients to find out pieces of information
    • Wh- questions let clients repair breakdowns by asking for the information they missed

How to Use Asking Therapy for Home Practice

Often, people with communication impairments are always on the answering end of questions, despite having many questions of their own. Now you can work on asking grammatically correct questions at home with Asking Therapy. Your speech therapist can help you figure out which settings and exercises are best for you, but if you are on your own, try this:

  • Start with Investigate and work as long as you find it challenging.
  • If that’s too easy, try Yes/No Questions.
  • If that’s too hard, try the Receptive mode for multiple-choice answers.
  • Challenge yourself with Expressive mode to answer aloud.
  • Try Wh-Questions to work on asking for clarification when you don’t understand.
  • See your progress in the User Hub, and share it with your therapist by email.

What People are Saying about Asking Therapy

If you are looking for an app to help your child ask a question or help them be more aware of conversations with others in different situations, this app is simply amazing and so well thought out…brilliant. I love how you can personalize this app to really help your child learn gradually with support.
Veronika Walshe, Mother of children with special needs, The Appy Ladies
Asking Therapy steps in where a lot of other speech materials can’t be found. The fact that it tackles a concept that is difficult for many children and adults alike to master, is highly user-friendly, and goes above and beyond the task at hand gives it big props in my book. A must-have for speech-language pathologists!
