Here’s What People are Saying about
Writing Therapy

Perfect for both children & adults!

I love the great real-life photographs used instead of cartoon pictures or line drawings. The functional, categorized vocabulary you use in your apps is appreciated!! I especially like the feature allowing clients the opportunity to analyze their responses prior to submitted them. This app has great control over the length of the words selected, the voice quality is good, and clinicians will appreciate the data reporting! Great job!

Beautifully done! Love this app!

This is a great app to help users learn to spell words. It has a very simple interface but excels at its intended purpose. A child or an adult can use this; the very nice part is that it isn’t childish as many learn to spell apps are, which I absolutely love. My favorite part is the fact that words can actually be misspelled, which allows the user to decide for themselves if it is correct or not BEFORE hitting the check button. So the target word is actually learned rather than just swiping letters until they all go into the correct slot.

Highly engaging! Great app!

I used this app with two of my aphasia clients- one in her 30s and one in his 50s. Both found it engaging and wanted to continue to use the app throughout their session. I like the different levels of difficulty and the hints (which both of my clients appreciated as well). This app has been very helpful for patients with aphasia, TBI, and memory loss due to seizures. I enjoy many of the Tactus apps, they are all great!

Easy to add spelling lists for school

This app is excellent. I use this a lot with my son for spelling homework. He has fine motor issues and writing to work on his spelling words really hurts his hands. However, he comes home from school and I have set this app up with his spelling homework and he practices through his lists and then he can e-mail them to his teacher for documentation that he completed his homework assignment.

Power User Tips

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

Where to Start

The activities move from easiest on the left to hardest on the right. Start with the Medium setting, and turn off the 8, 9, and 10+ letter words. The recommendations will guide you from there.

Make it Easier

Choose an activity on the left half of the home screen. Use the Easy setting and turn off all but the 3 and 4 letter words on the Settings tab.

Make it Harder

Choose an activity on the right half of the home screen. Use the Hard setting, and turn off the 3, 4, and 5 letter words on the Settings tab, leaving only 6+ letter words.

Gain Independence

Use the Hint button when you’re stuck to narrow the options. If you find yourself using the hint a lot, step down in difficulty next time. Consider turning off the Show Score setting too.

Make it Personal

Add your own words to practice family names or other meaningful words. This allows you to work on focused spelling lists or train key words for other therapy approaches such as ACRT. Read more about ACRT here: https://tactustherapy.com/anagram-copy-recall-treatment-writing/

Do More

Write the word on paper 5 times after completing the activity with tiles. Cover the screen to stretch your memory. Record yourself saying the word with on-screen recording controls.

Move Your Way

Did you know you can drag the letters into place or just simply tap them? They’ll fill in the blank spaces from left to right when you touch them.

Hear the Letters – or Not

Many people benefit from hearing the letter names as they touch the letters, but for others, this can be distracting. Change the Sounds setting to hear touch-confirming clicks or no sound at all.

Parlez-vous français?

This app can speak English (North American), English (UK), French, German, & Spanish – change your device language for localized menus & reports, or just select the exercise language in the Settings.

Use Reading to Help Writing

The reason this app has a Check button is to allow you to read your answer, decide if it’s correct, and change it if you want. This builds self-monitoring and self-correction skills.
