How to Use Reading TherAppy for Home Practice

If you or a loved one is having difficulty reading, Reading TherAppy can help. Sometimes it appears that a person understands what they read, but you don’t know for sure until you challenge their comprehension with matching and completion exercises. Discover and improve on your reading challenges. 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 Phrase Matching. Pick the phrase that best matches the picture.
  • If it’s too easy, try Phrase Completion or Sentence Matching.
  • If it’s too hard, limit the answer choices to 2 or 3 in the settings.
  • Try reading each phrase or sentence aloud for extra practice.
  • E-mail your results to your therapist or a family member to share your progress.

What People are Saying about Reading TherAppy

★★★★★ Wonderful app for stroke patients – I purchased this app for my mother to use as an additional aid to the speech therapy she’s getting. She’s found it very helpful, and extremely user-friendly. When doing paper exercises, she can get very frustrated when she gets an answer wrong, and she can’t see the way forward to the right answer. This app avoids that by eliminating the wrong answer and giving her the chance to keep working out the right answer. Being able to pick and mix categories is a big advantage too. A fantastic app, and a good price too. This app has been expertly thought out and implemented. Very pleased with it.
Daughter of a stroke survivor, App Store Review, UK
I’ve come to expect only the best from Tactus Therapy. Reading TherAppy delivers the same attention to detail, high quality photographs, flexibility, ease of use, automated scoring, and email results. I like that the app allows you to keep trying before advancing to the next exercise. The matching exercises may seem easy but upon trying, but they are rather challenging. You really need to read carefully and use your problem solving skills. The Completion exercises were great for testing my older kids’ knowledge of common phrases and functional use of the English language. If I have my way, Reading TherAppy will get the attention from educators and parents that it deserves.
