Description

"Love This App!" "Very Useful!" "Perfect!" "So Easy to Use!" "Great for my patients!" See why thousands of users around the world are raving about this app! People with memory impairments can become worried when they don't remember where they are or other important information. They may be unsafe when they forget to use a walker or apply the wheelchair breaks before standing. All of these facts and procedures can be engrained into memory using a repetitive and effective memory training procedure. This Spaced Retrieval Therapy app uses the scientifically-proven method of spaced retrieval training to help people with dementia or other memory impairments to recall important information. Recalling an answer over multiplying intervals of time, such as 1 minute, 2 minutes, 8 minutes, and so on, helps to cement the information in memory. Spaced Retrieval Therapy is an enhanced interval timer with independent data tracking and prompts. It automatically increases the time between prompts with correct responses and decreases it with incorrect ones. This app will help clinicians, family members, and students keep track of the intervals and performance as they practice up to 3 memory targets. *Put away your stopwatch and paper - this app is all you need! *Keeps track of expanding intervals and data so you don't have to *Works in the background while doing other therapy exercises or using other apps *Subtle sound and visual prompts let you know it’s time to ask again *Tracks accuracy and data automatically, & emails you the finished report "5 Stars - This app is a fantastic inclusion into my therapy toolbox. It is very useful in therapy and helps me keep track patient progress more efficiently." - App Store Review 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). Recommended by top experts in memory training and dementia therapy, Spaced Retrieval Therapy will make your life easier and your therapy more efficient. "***** Very Useful! I found this app to be extremely useful during therapy sessions. When juggling multiple activities it can be difficult to remember to cue a patient for each specific interval. This app makes spaced retrieval an easy way to incorporate prospective and short term memory tasks into treatment." - SLP on App Store Review Visit our website at http://tactustherapy.com/app/srt/ to link to several articles about this technique and its proven efficacy with dementia, aphasia, normal learners, and more. This app is also available as part of the Tactus Complete Therapy Toolkit and Tactus Cognitive Therapy Toolkit discount bundles for iPad users. 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.

  • Worthless

    It literally just prompts you to answer same question at a repeated interval. No help for SLPs doing therapy. Wish I could get a refund.
  • Not worth $3.99

    This app is too simplistic. I could perform the exercises in exactly the same manner with the stop watch on the iPhone. The user should at least be able to save training sessions for future use. Also the timing is confusing. The SRT therapy itself is brilliant and everyone should try it, but the app itself needs a major overhaul.

  • Great with my dementia patients!

    I love this app for working with my patients with dementia. Spaced retrieval is excellent for helping individuals with dementia remember important things (names of caregivers, where they live, where to look if they need to find information, etc.). I love that with this app, I don't have to constantly check my watch to see if its time to ask the question again, or set my cell phones alarm clock for a dozen different time intervals. I haven't tried this with any of my patients other than those with dementia, but I am excited to do so in the future!
  • Great for patients with TBI!

    Spaced Retrieval TherAppy is one of the many great applications by Tactus Therapy Solutions. You can customize the application by adding your own questions and choosing the time intervals for how often to ask questions related to time, orientation, naming objects, memory strategies, etc. This is exactly what I worked on when I was working with people who had TBI in a clinic, but simpified to fit in your pocket. In addition, the application comes with instructions of how to use it as well as the ability to record data and e-mail it to yourself. This cuts down on time recording data. It would be great to have a recording function on this app in the future for those who have difficulty reading/have lost the skill of reading fluently.
  • LOVE IT!!
