Description

Visual Attention Therapy helps brain injury and stroke survivors, as well as struggling students, to improve scanning abilities. It also helps rehab professionals to assess for neglect and provide more efficient and effective therapy for attention deficits. Visual Attention Therapy Lite gives you a free taste of the customization and utility of the full app: Visual Attention Therapy. This lite version lets you try Test and Practice modes with one level and layout, but is otherwise a fully functional app, allowing you to try 1 or 2 targets, all the signal and target colors and styles, and send e-mail reports. Practicing scanning from left to right across a page helps retrain the brain to move the eyes correctly. Strengthening this essential skill can improve reading, concentration, memory, attention to detail, and speed of processing. Using two targets at once can help users with working memory and alternating attention. 1) Use the Test mode to help determine if a scanning or attention deficit exists. 2) Use the Practice mode to train scanning to find targets in order. _______________________ CANCELLATION TASKS JUST GOT BETTER This professional cognitive training app takes traditional cancellation exercises, the evidence-based standard for testing and treating visuospatial neglect, and enhances them with benefits that are only available through technology: * Targets must be tapped from left to right, top to bottom in Practice mode, training users to slow down and scan the entire screen before they can move forward. * Sidebar signal can flash in a variety of colors to draw attention to the left or right. * Auditory and a variety of visual cues give instant feedback and keep users engaged. * Timed exercises increase motivation to work quickly and accurately. * No need to spend time counting errors. Automated scoring includes data for accuracy by quadrant, time for completion, and mistakes in professional e-mailed reports. * Adjustable layouts and 10 levels of difficulty allow you to customize the experience to meet changing needs or multiple users. * An endless variety of combinations eliminates the need to photocopy exercises and saves paper. Visual Attention Therapy was developed by a certified Speech-Language Pathologist and is used worldwide by SLPs, occupational therapists, vision specialists, and neuropsychologists to help adults and children with dyslexia, dementia, and attentional deficits. People of all ages enjoy racing against the clock to challenge themselves to improve on their scores while improving their cognitive and reading skills. Levels featuring letters can support literacy goals, while symbol-based levels challenge visual memory skills. _______________________ WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING “This app takes a simple, familiar format and turns it into a dynamic, interactive tool with the ability to be age appropriate for anyone from preschoolers to elderly adults.” —SLP “Visual Attention Therapy is guaranteed to be one of those beautiful apps that, when you see it and try it out, will make you exclaim 'Finally!' We were this close to hugging it, to be honest. Thanks for yet another amazing release, Tactus Therapy.” —SLP “I was not sure if children would be motivated to use this app, but the 'no nonsense' approach really seemed to help the children with their attention & task persistence. They especially enjoyed the immediate feedback they got regarding their speed & accuracy. I recommend this app for school-aged children having difficulty with visual scanning/tracking, reading, working memory, & copying skills.”—OT _______________________ This app contains no outside ads or in-app purchases, does not collect or transmit personal data, and links can be deactivated.

  • Great Vision Therapy Tool

    My son was in vision therapy for two years for tracking and convergence issues. Lots of boring excersizes.... This app sure would have spiced things up. I love that you can customize the difficulty.
  • Another great app!

    I really like this app for both my elementary aged students and my geriatric patients! It is wonderful for focus and attention and a great tool for hemispheric neglect. The developers are wonderful and are always so great with responding to feedback! My only request for this app is larger font so my geriatric patients could more easily utilize this for hemispheric neglect therapy. Overall, wonderful and worth the money for the full app!

    This LITE version does a great job of showing you how the full version works. This app is easy to use and has a great info page. I like the customization settings and the OT I showed was really excited about buying the full version of this app. I highly recommend trying this free/lite version and then buying the full version. Great job Tactus!

    After reading the (last) review, I was a little worried...however, the first page you click test or preview... the next shows what this is a "preview" of...IF you click on that, it will take you to the "store" HOWEVER, to the right there is an ARROW button...click that and it takes you to the sample! This is really a great VISUAL CONCENTRATION app! Having to click left to right on the "letters" they choose among other shapes, letters...I tried the "2 targets" which were q & p...I caught myself clicking on some p and d just b/c i wasn't paying attention! This will be a GREAT concentration app for my daughter! AS with all the Tactus Apps...LOVE IT! Keep up the good work! The full version is going on my "wish list'!!!!!!!
  • Good representation of the full app

    I have worked with the Lite version of this app and have purchased the full version. Since this is a Lite version, it does not have the full capabilities as the paid version, but it does give you a good idea of what variables can be controlled based on your needs - it allows you to work with one of the 10 levels available in the full version. Thanks for providing this app so potential buyers can try before buying!
  • Great opportunity to try the product before buying

    This lite version gives consumers the ability to try out the app in both test and practice mode (practice mode including modifiable use of a signal helping the player move from left to right). As a lite version, it is nice that many options are still included including differing targets and the option of 1-2 targets. Great opportunity to try out an app that will be valuable in remediating skills lost after stroke or brain injury

    Visual Attention by Tactus Therapy Solutions is a good app that fills a void in the market. I see it as a great tool for iPads that are accessible by students with disabilities. Specifically students with learning disabilities and other health impairments. Anyone with kids that need to work on scanning across a page should take a look at this app.
