Speech FlipBook – Articulation & Apraxia

A “must-have” tool for every Speech-Language Pathologist, Teacher, & Parent is now FREE to try! Use for Reading, Phonological Awareness, Apraxia, Articulation, & More!

Millions of parents, teachers, & therapists have made little flip books of letters & sounds for their children, students, & patients – now you can SAVE TIME with this talking flipbook that is completely customizable to your needs!

It’s as easy as 1-2-3 to have quick access to nearly every single-syllable word in the English language, suitable for all ages:

  1. Pick which sounds you want to appear in initial, medial, & final positions
  2. Flip between sounds or words to create the targets you want
  3. Hear the sounds & words, then record yourself & play it back instantly!

This app includes 16 sounds and 40 words with the option to upgrade to all 2300+ recordings of words in natural speech & 125 phonemes & clusters! The full version includes ALL vowels & consonants of Standard American English as well as over 250 sets of homophones.

So many uses:

  • Learning to Read
  • Phonological Awareness
  • Apraxia
  • Articulation
  • Minimal Pairs
  • Phonological Disorders
  • Dysarthria
  • Accent Reduction
  • Speech Perception for Deaf & Hard of Hearing

Settings are flexible:

Sounds can appear in uppercase, lowercase, or IPA (international phonetic alphabet). See only real words, non-words, or both. Select any or all vowels as well as initial & final phonemes & clusters. Flip between sounds or whole words.

Kids will have fun learning on their own or working with an adult or therapist on specific speech, language, or reading goals as they flip through the words. Adults can use this app too for rehabilitation from apraxia, aphasia, or dysarthria, or for English-language learning & accent reduction.

SLPs can generate a word list on demand, focusing on all words that begin or end with a given sound, or words that fit a particular phonological structure (e.g. alveolar-vowel-alveolar). SLPs can use whichever therapy technique is indicated (cycles, minimal or maximal contrasts, metaphon, complexity, phonological awareness, traditional drill, etc) to treat speech sound disorders & use this app to generate the appropriate word lists!

Words are paired with the sounds so learners can see the various spellings that go with each sound. Therapists are already seeing the results of children being in control of this app & improving each sound as they blend them together into well-articulated words!

This app is deceptively simple – it can do so much once you learn to use the settings to achieve the word & sound activities you want. Additional instructions & videos on how to use the app for various purposes are available on our website.

Race against time to find letters and symbols in a field of adjustable size – perfect for rehab therapists, brain injury survivors, and special needs classrooms!

Scanning from left to right all the way across the page is an essential skill for reading, both for children learning to read and for those with brain injury causing visual or attention deficits. Read the studies posted on our website to learn how this technique works and why it’s so important: http://tactustherapy.com/apps/vat/

This app gives you a sample of the professional rehab and special education app: Visual Attention TherAppy. Visual Attention Therapy provides systematic and customizable practice to train the eyes and brain to move correctly. Developed for stroke survivors and people with dyslexia by a Speech-Language Pathologist, Visual Attention TherAppy offers 2 modes:

  • Test – check if there’s a problem in scanning or attention
  • Practice – move left to right, finding 1 or 2 targets in order

Set Practice to Left, None, or Right to turn on/off a bright signal at the edge of the screen to draw attention to the neglected side of space. Customize the signal to match the training program already in place (red line, yellow line, flashing).

There are 12 settings of spacing/size to customize the app for the level of the user to provide between 24 & 228 items on the screen available in the full app. The Lite version offers 1 size/spacing setting to get you started.

Email results of the test (indicates which quadrant is most often neglected) and practice to track progress over time for both speed and accuracy.

**This LITE version restricts Test and Practice modes to 1 level and 1 size to allow you to experience how the full app works. It is a fully functional app for this 1 level and size, allowing you to try 1 or 2 targets and access emails.***

Spaced Retrieval TherAppy

“Spaced Retrieval TherAppy” is developed by Tactus Therapy Solutions Ltd. It is normally $3.99 but it is on sale for $1.99 for a limited time. It is compatible with the iPad, iPod touch, and iPhone and requires iOS 5.0 or later.

Spaced retrieval is a scientifically proven method of improving memory of names, facts, and routines for all people, including those with memory impairments (Alzheimer’s disease and other neurological conditions). This expanded interval timer will help clinicians, family members, and students to keep track of the intervals and performance as they practice up to 3 memory targets.

Visit our website at http://tactustherapy.com/apps/srt/ to link to several articles about this technique and it’s proven efficacy with dementia, aphasia, normal learners, and more.

Recalling an answer over expanding intervals of time (1 minute, 2 minutes, 4 minutes, 8 minutes…) helps to cement the information in memory, even for those with impaired memory. Combining the recall with a physical act (e.g. turning over a card) involves procedural memory, a memory system often preserved when explicit memory is impaired.

Speech-Language Pathologists, Occupational Therapists, Neuropsychologists, Teachers, Social Workers, and families can all use this simple technique & app to help clients and loved ones remember important information (names, safety procedures, orientation information, etc).

Please note: This app is a timer and tracks data. Targets should be individually selected for the memory-impaired person to be relevant and meaningful. This app is not intended to be used alone by the memory-impaired person, but as a therapy tool by a clinician or family member trained in this technique.

Writing TherAppy

“Writing TherAppy” is developed by Tactus Therapy Solutions Ltd. It is normally $19.99 but it is on sale for $9.99 for a limited time. It is compatible with the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad and requires iOS 5.0 or later.

Writing TherAppy is a unique app for spelling practice for adults with brain injury or stroke as well as ESL speakers or children learning to spell.

**Try it for FREE in Language TherAppy Lite or purchase at a discount in the 4-in-1 Language TherAppy app!**

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 TherAppy 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 TherAppy 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.

Now you can add your own words and pictures to create completely customized 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 North American male voice or UK English female voice. 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 (3-10 letters), selecting capital or lowercase letters, designating which of 12 categories are presented, and enabling a child-friendly mode. For users with difficulty dragging, an alternative tapping access method is available. Speech-Language Pathologists, 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).

Writing TherAppy is another powerful app in Tactus Therapy Solutions’ professionally-designed Language TherAppy suite of speech-language therapy apps. It is the perfect companion to Comprehension TherAppy, Naming TherAppy, and Reading TherAppy.

Our customers love this app! Read what they have to say:

“I really like that this app can be used by both children and 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 older students/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!”

“Great app, highly engaging! 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). Great app!”

“Beautifully done! 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. Love this app!”
