    This is a very helpful app for patients to use during a therapy session or on their own. Many of the patients I work with have reading issues and this app is very helpful. It is so nice not having to carry around multiple photocopies. The app will work for children or adults. The app is multifunctional without being visually distracting. The therappy set of apps are excellent and the ones I use most often. I have also had many patients buy this app.

    I am fairly new to this app however have been using it with my adult CVA patients. They have responded well to the activities and it's great that the complexity can be adjusted from easy to hard. The different levels beginning with pic ID with phrases and sentences is great for the variety of patients. There are so many functional categories to choose from. I love this app and use it multiple times every day! Thanks for this great app!
  • Great app!

    Really was looking fwd to this app!!! Sat down and had my daughter working on it! Love it. HOWEVER, wish there was some option for the words/sentences to be read outloud...if that were the case, it'd be 5 stars for sure!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! --update--- IF you are using this for a child...in "settings" there is a child friendly setting to turn on!!! Still hoping for the "read along with" option ;)
  • Advancing from speaking single words to phrases and sentences

    The NamingApp and the ReadingApp have similar user interfaces which is great. For my wife suffering from aphasia and apraxia, it was a natural step to use the ReadingApp to move from saying single words to saying phrases and complete sentences. The ReadingApp has options of phrase matching and completion and sentence matching and completion. My wife likes to use the sentence completion feature and then speak the completed sentence. Unlike the NamingApp, the ReadingApp does not have the facility to speak the completed sentence so I or someone else has to work with her. It would be great if Tactus added this or created another app that speaks sentences.
