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.
Originally intended for use by adults with dysphasia, this app features clear photographs, iconic graphics, and a clear North American male voice or UK English female voice. Children will also benefit from the trial-and-error format and self-selected cues for learning these common words.
Settings allow limiting the length of the words (3-10 letters), designating which of 12 categories are presented, and enabling a child-friendly mode. Speech and Language Therapists, family members, and teachers can recommend the appropriate modes and levels for each user and receive e-mailed reports of results (ready for medical charting).
From the makers of Comprehension, Naming, and Reading TherAppy, Writing TherAppy is another powerful app in Tactus Therapy Solutions' professionally-designed suite of apps for speech therapy.
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!"
