Stroke survivors with aphasia have to work so hard to regain the communication skills they’ve lost. They spend countless hours relearning the names of common items, practicing writing with a new hand, and trying to make sense of printed text. Most early exercises for aphasia center around words: understanding, saying, reading, and writing single words. That’s why our Language Therapy 4-in-1 app is so popular and effective  – it starts with the basic building blocks of communication. But soon it’s time to move beyond the word level, on to phrases, sentences, and paragraphs. These are the combinations of words that link concepts together, communicating complex thoughts and ideas.

Advanced Language Therapy: Four Advanced Apps in One

To help you take your therapy to the next level, we’ve developed four therapeutic apps to work on speaking, understanding, reading, and writing for more complex words, sentences, and paragraphs. And now we’ve combined them into one convenient and money-saving package so you can work on all four areas together.

 

Advanced Language Therapy combines 14 unique activities in four full apps for thousands of exercises to keep your recovery going:

App 1) Advanced Comprehension Therapy

Practice understanding sentences with three activities to improve listening and reading skills.

  1. Identify: 12 levels of sentence-to-picture matching tasks for auditory or reading comprehension
  2. Build: Hundreds of sentences to assemble
  3. Follow: One, two, and three-step directions to follow to hone attention in listening or reading

App 2) Advanced Naming Therapy

Practice word-finding skills with four activities to improve verbal expression.

  1. Create: Focus on the verb to create sentences structured on the evidence-based VNeST protocol
  2. Generate: Name items in categories as quickly as you can in this generative naming exercise with 2 standardized assessments built in
  3. Compare: Use descriptive language to compare and contrast related concepts in both concrete and abstract pairings
  4. Describe: Laugh as you talk about hundreds of interesting photos that require clear communication to describe

App 3) Advanced Reading Therapy

Practice reading hundreds of passages at the paragraph+ level with comprehension questions and audio support.

  1. Level 1: reading passages top out at 50 words and are written at a Grade 0-1 reading level with 3 comprehension questions
  2. Level 2: a variety of passages with 50-150 words at a Grade 2-3 reading level with 4 questions to test comprehension
  3. Level 3: more complex texts go up to 600 words at a Grade 3-6 reading level with 5 questions each

App 4) Advanced Writing Therapy

Practice typing at the word, sentence, and paragraph levels along with strengthening sound-letter relationships.

  1. Match: Hear a sound and select the letter or letters that go with it, using keywords to support learning phoneme-grapheme correspondence
  2. Spell: Listen to the most common words in English before typing them correctly, with multiple-choice options and copying for support
  3. Type: Key in the 1- to 8- word sentence you hear, copying if needed
  4. Write: Generate your own ideas to answer writing prompts; a word bank is available to help you when you get stuck
