Here’s What People are Saying about
Naming Therapy

I credit my husband’s improvement to this app!

My husband had a stroke earlier this year and I searched all over looking for apps that I could use on my iPad and found Tactus Therapy! We used Naming on a daily basis and even recommended it to our speech therapist to use for her patients. Thank you for making such a wonderful app & series. As of today my husband’s aphasia has improved dramatically and I credit part of it to these apps! Thank you!

My most used app for therapy

This is by far one of my most used apps in my clinical practice as an SLP and one of my most recommended apps too. I love not having to carry a huge deck of cards around the hospital, and the patients are thrilled to use an iPad. Even some of the doctors have requested we “show them the pictures.” But the part I love MOST is the way the app collects data for me. HUGE time saver!

His confidence has improved along with his speech

This is one amazing app. It was the first of all the Tactus Therapy apps I purchased for my husband after his stroke just over a year ago. The ease of use for him was awesome. I had been using picture cards with him, yet there were few that didn’t appear childlike. With this app his naming has improved so much along with his confidence level. I can’t thank Tactus Therapy enough for playing a role in my husband’s ongoing recovery.

Test Yourself

Using Naming Test to determine if there’s a naming problem for the type of words in this app. Spot-check progress over time by repeating the test.

Know Where to Start

Look at the report from Naming Test to find which categories are weaker to target them directly using Naming Practice.

Encourage Independence

Let the user press the cue buttons and score when they’re right to encourage self-monitoring & self-evaluation. You can record yourself & compare it to the right answer using the on screen controls.

Make it Personal

Add photos of your family, pets, & favorite things for more motivating and personalized practice. Research shows that creating your own cues can lead to better outcomes.

Keep it Positive

There’s no need to press the X button in Naming Practice unless the user is unable to repeat the word. Only acknowledge correct answers and let the app track which cues resulted in success.

Length Matters

Restrict syllable length to 1 or 2 for those with more severe apraxia of speech. Challenge users with mild apraxia by selecting words with only 4 or 5 syllables.

Focus Your Efforts

You can turn off any words in the app to focus on a smaller set of words across categories. Go to the Settings, touch Choose, and customize the word list.

Make Your Own Therapy

The Flashcards activity lets you design your own therapy activity. Write or say the word. Create a sentence using the word. Define the word. Repeat the word 5 times. It’s up to you!
