How to Use Advanced Writing Therapy for Home Practice

This app is for people who want to improve their written communication, from words to paragraphs. Even if you’re no longer in therapy, you can work with Advanced Writing Therapy at home using the built-in supports. 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 Match and select just one category at a time until you master it.
  • Try Spell next, limiting the number of letters in the Settings if you need shorter words.
  • If that’s doable, then try Type. Work your way up from 1-word sentences to 8 words.
  • Finally, try Write. Use each level to practice. Write on paper if you prefer.
  • Stuck? Use the Hint buttons to give you keywords, choices, or the target to copy.
  • E-mail your reports to your therapist or a family member to share your progress.

What People are Saying about Advanced Writing Therapy

I’ve been using Advanced Writing often with several of my clients, and I find that it’s such a functional app. My clients enjoy it too! Given what we’ve learned about various types of agraphia and how some clients may better access a word through the ‘lexical route’, some may have more success with the ‘phonological route’, and some may need to use both in collaboration, I think that this app serves as a functional therapy app for people with different types of central agraphia. I find that it can also be used effectively with people with different severities of writing impairments and can also support goal setting and planning along the way. I’ve already noticed measurable improvement in my client with deep agraphia. Initially, he had no sound to letter correspondence, but now he is able to identify the corresponding letter when presented with a sound with roughly 80-90% accuracy. This is helpful because it allows him to independently correct his spelling errors when writing at the single word level, and it has definitely restored his hope that he will continue to achieve his writing goals!
