Naming TherAppy

Using evidence-based therapy techniques to practice confrontation naming, Naming TherAppy helps people with anomia, aphasia, and other word-finding deficits. A practice mode features a built-in hierarchy of cues and self-scoring, a description mode allows for circumlocution practice with question prompts, and a flashcard mode that includes verbs and adjectives, and a brief “Test” mode for screening combine to create a complete naming toolkit. You can add your own words, pictures, prompts, and sounds to customize this app to each learner’s needs!
Scoring is done by the user, and results can be emailed in report-ready format. Over 500 nouns with full-color photographs, recorded voice, and graphic icons.
