Description

Cuespeak app- NHS recommended.

Cuespeak is a rehabilitation tool for people with speech, language and cognitive difficulties after stroke or brain injury. Produced in the UK, it’s optimised for use with a Speech & Language Therapist, but can also be used independently. The app can be managed remotely from another location, with the clinician or other helper sending session updates via the internet, and the user sending back results.

Cuespeak moves beyond traditional 'picture naming' approaches to use a 'question and facilitated answer' format which aims to go some way towards emulating the processing demands of conversation. The 20,000+ spoken prompts include questions, spoken feedback on errors and 'closure cues' designed to elicit spoken production of target words and phrases.

Exercises from any of the ten therapy modules can be customised to individual needs and combined into a bespoke therapy programme which will then run automatically when the ‘run session’ button is pressed.

Exercises cover:

Spoken word retrieval and production

Sentence construction and production

Asking questions

Understanding spoken language

Semantic associations

Phonology

Articulation

Spelling

Reading

An advanced settings menu allows SLTs to tailor exercises for specific linguistic needs. Target words can be selected according to number of phonemes (sounds), number of letters, number of syllables, first and last sounds, grammatical word class and thematic role. Results capture both accuracy and speed of responses and are displayed over time in graph form.

With the exception of the articulation videos, Cuespeak can run fully without internet connection.

This version of Cuespeak is aimed at UK users, using British English throughout and with cultural references geared towards the UK. However, a filter is provided to remove UK-specific questions if desired.

Excellent, versatile, adaptable, up to date material. Yes, there is a subscription fee (minimum £3.99 a month), but well worth the money. Good for independent use and with therapist. Constantly updated with new material to engage user.
