"Number Therapy is a game changer for me. I love it." - Trish, stroke survivor with aphasia
Speech-Language Pathologists: use this app to make the communication of numbers a part of your therapy plan for people with aphasia or other disorders. Three unique activities address auditory and reading comprehension, verbal expression, and written expression. Your clients can use the built-in hints, cues, and audio recording to be successful, then e-mail you their results in a professional report so you can track their progress over time.
Ideal for use in the clinic and at home, add Number Therapy to your therapy app collection!
*Please note: this app does NOT address math skills or equations. It focuses on the communication of numbers, not calculations.

Ratings and Reviews
Works very well even with recalcitrant users!
Sometimes you’ll find yourself faced with a user who fights learning anything new, kind of arrogantly ignorant. This app can help overcome such an attitude.
One addition which would help would be an exercise breaking numbers into ones, tens, hundreds, thousands etc. with the user saying the values as they are typed into the position on the line. This is how some children are taught and it travels some long unused paths.
A Game Changer
Number Therapy app is a game changer. I'm practicing MYSELF.
I had a stroke seven years ago. I have aphasia and apraxia.
I have great difficulties comprehending numbers when they are spoken to me. However, I do understand them when they are written down. It is hard to say numbers.
Tactus Therapy's Number Therapy App is good, really good. Three sections - Understand, Speak, and Type.
I mostly practice the double digits. Anything goes - currency, phone number, time and more. And you can record yourself... It's cool!
Understand - I use "listen" and guess from 4 multiple-choice.
Speak - I like cues. You touch the cue buttons and it helps right away.
Type - I use "listen" and guess. You ask a hint, and it gives a number word.
By the way, I like "select the text" to hear it spoken by the help/information page. How cool!
Thank you Megan, Cliff, Ben, and Clement
Thanks for the update. Adding your own phone numbers is so helpful
