Rick rocket's Review of Naming TherapyReviewed on 11/16/18 2:04 PM
My wife had a s***** March 2011 and has moderate-severe expressive aphasia. This app is quite good for helping her recover her speech. It is professionally done and is easy to use. The price is reasonable. We use the naming practice which has the option of cueing words by having the user complete a sentence, showing the first letter, spelling the word, describing the word,and sounding the beginning of the word. It has a substantial list of nouns. The user can select one or more categories to work on at the same time. You really cannot get enough professional SLP hours on most insurance. NamingTherapy enables a non-professional to provide additional support for recovery.

This app has been such an asset to my home-care patients with aphasia! They love the pictures and it is definitely a benefit not to carry around loads of picture cards.

I have been using this app with my patients with aphasia at my hospital internship and they love it! It's very engaging and the variety of prompts are great!

I float around between multiple assisted living and skilled nursing buildings as well as home health with my iPad always in my bag. This is by far the app I use most for adults with aphasia as well as those in our dementia units to name functional objects, this app is second best to real objects! I also use it as a barrier task during dysarthria treatment where I have the patient describe as much about the photograph as I assess their intelligibility. The naming test is great as a mini-assessment you can record along with other assessments during progress notes for G-Codes.

This app is an excellent resource for SLPs working with adults with aphasia who want to utilize materials other than paper flash cards! It will also be helpful for patients/families who have an iPhone/iPad and want to continue this app for their home exercise program. Awesome that an SLP is finally creating useful apps for therapy. Keep up the good work!
SpeechTherapist's Review of Naming TherapyReviewed on 11/16/18 2:04 PM
I had put off purchasing this app for a while because I didn't want to spend the money. When I finally caved, I was SO glad I did! This app has been great for both my pediatric as well as geriatric clients. There are so many options and and ways to customize that you can really use it for just about anyone! With such emphasis on data and accountability, this app really goes the distance in therapy and is well worth the money!!

I originally bought this app to 1. get a better idea of how Tactus TherAppy apps performed, and 2. use it in presentations for speech-language pathology graduate students. I quickly realized how useful the app would be in my job as an itinerant speech-language therapist for preschoolers. I started by mostly using the "naming practice" portion. As I explored the app more, I realized how useful the "naming test" section was for objective data collection--I gave it to a couple children at the beginning of a quarter and then gave it again so I could easily get an objective measure of their progress. The "describe" section uses the concept of semantic feature analysis to strengthen semantic relationships. I haven't really used the "flashcards" section with my clients. Overall, I'm very pleased with the app. It is easy to navigate, incorporates evidence-based techniques, and gives me an easy, objective way to take data. Very few apps I've encountered are age-appropriate for both adults and preschoolers. I will be working in a medical setting later this year and cannot wait to try out the app with adults with aphasia!

This app has proven to be very helpful for multiple children on my caseload who have difficulty using expanded descriptive language. The visual supports are subtle but available when needed. I especially appreciate the functional vocabulary and how it is divided into categories. This is a nicely organized and professionally developed app that I'm glad I added to my tool box.

Naming TherAppy is a fantastic app for for working with both children an adults who have trouble with expressive speech. With 4 different modes, name practice, name test, describe, and Flashcards, users get multiple chances to cement the information learned. The app is also very customizable!
