Here’s What People are Saying about
Visual Attention Therapy

Thanks for yet another amazing release!

Tactus Therapy continues to impress with their quality therapy apps. One needs a thick book of paper-based activities to get the customized visual attention tasks you get here. Visual Attention Therapy is guaranteed to be one of those beautiful apps that will make you exclaim “Finally!” We were this close to hugging it, to be honest.

Carla Cuadro, SLP 

I highly recommend it!

As with all the Tactus Therapy apps, this one is easy to navigate. I love how this app can just as easily be used with a 3-year-old who is just learning to read as it can with an adult experiencing left neglect from a brain tumor. It takes a simple, familiar format and turns it into a dynamic, interactive tool that is age-appropriate for anyone.

Aubrey Taylor Klingensmith, SLP 
Speechie Apps

This app ticks all the boxes!

Tactus Therapy is well-known for their high-quality apps catering to those with special needs. This app is no exception. This specialized app has a beautifully simple user interface. I have 2 boys with ASD who have tracking problems that make reading challenging. Visual Attention Therapy is a great value that offers proven results.

Power User Tips

Get the most out of Visual Attention Therapy. Browse these tips from the speech-language pathologist who developed this app.

Pick Your Goal

Use Visual Attention Therapy to assess and treat left neglect, right neglect, attention deficits, working memory impairments, slow speed of processing, initiation problems, and reading problems.

Client Profiles

The deficits addressed by this app are common in people with strokes (especially right CVAs), dementia (Alzheimer’s and other types), brain injury (TBI), and other cognitive disorders. 

Start at the Right Level

Don’t automatically select all target levels. Choose only the levels that offer sufficient challenge. You’ll find 10 options on the Levels tab arranged in order of difficulty.

Make it Easier

Select 1 target, the fewest number of items, and Level 1: Same Symbol or Level 2: Same Letter. This will focus on sustained attention as the user hits every single item on the screen.

Make it Harder

Select 2 targets, the most number of items, and Level 9: Similar Symbols (to exercise the visuo-spatial sketchpad of working memory) or Level 10: Similar Letters (to exercise the phonological loop of working memory).

Create a Challenge

Race against a previous time or score to encourage faster processing speed and accuracy. Set a target to beat, but don’t always trade time for accuracy. Make therapy fun and engaging!

Functional Therapy

If better reading is the objective, choose levels featuring letters. The closer therapy is to the functional outcome, the better and faster it is likely to work. Even-numbered levels use letters.

Build Insight

Take a screenshot after completing the Test but before pressing Done. This will give you a visual record of missed targets for users with decreased awareness of their neglect. Review the image to build insight and discuss strategies.

Generalize Outside the App

We give you four signal color options to allow you to match the app with the color of painter’s tape you might be using on doorways, tables, and trays around the rehab unit or home for consistency.

Increase Independence

Start with a flashing signal to draw extra attention to the neglected side. Once the user has a high success rate, fade the signal to a solid color, then remove it altogether for better generalization.
