Description

Lite version for free. Full version £14.99.

With 4 modes and 3 levels of difficulty in each, users have access to 12 different exercises to practice writing over 500 words + unlimited custom words!

* Fill-in-the-Blank
* Copy
* Spell What You See
* Spell What You Hear

Unlike other learn-to-spell apps, Writing Therapy allows users to select and rearrange letter tiles until they are satisfied, choosing when to submit an answer, rather than letters only fitting into the correct spot. Writing Therapy also has a built-in cueing hierarchy to give "hints" on each level, making the exercise one step easier to allow success on each trial. A virtual set of letter tiles makes therapy go faster with more repetitions in less time.

You can add your own words and pictures to create completely customised spelling lists! Learn to spell names, places, or words related to each user's needs.

This app features clear photographs, iconic graphics, and a clear male voice in 5 languages. Users will benefit from the trial-and-error format and self-selected cues for learning these common words with graduated activities that will grow with them as they develop or improve.

Settings allow limiting the length of the words, selecting capital or lowercase letters, designating which of 12 categories are presented, and choosing how letters are selected. For users with difficulty dragging, an alternative tapping access method is available. Speech-Language Therapists, family members, and teachers can recommend the appropriate modes and levels for each user and receive e-mailed reports of results (ready for professional progress notes).

It is made by Tactus Therapy a health app company specialising in speech apps for Neuro. Tactus Therapy was founded by a Speech and Language therapist for Speech and Language therapists. They make a whole range of Speech therapy apps and have some useful resources on their website to help Therapists Using apps as part of rehabilitation for Aphasia and speech and language difficulties.

I have used this with dysphasic patients to supplement word finding therapy. The patient could then e-mail me the results and i could track his progress.
