Semantic Links is a professional speech therapy app that works on the comprehension of verbs, the ability to link verbs to objects as well as verb retrieval. Designed to help people with brain injury and aphasia from stroke, it is also a valuable tool for older children with special needs including autism.
Activity 1: Verb Comprehension
In this activity, the person is required to understand the verb in the sentence and link it to an object e.g. “What do you sleep on?”, “What do you eat?”, “What do you watch?”. The person can choose from a choice of 2-6 possible objects.
Activity 2: Object Function
In this activity, the person is shown a picture of an object and is asked to name its function e.g. "What do you do with an umbrella?", "What do you do with a hairbrush?"
The user can answer without choices or with a choice of 2-4 possible answers. The answers are in the written form and can also be read aloud by the app.
The app includes:
- Over 200 high-quality real-life photos of objects
- Adjustable difficulty levels and content
- Results summary that can be emailed
- Results tracking and inbuilt storage
- No subscriptions, no monthly bills, no Wi-Fi needed
