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

"***** 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

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.

Ratings and Reviews
Makes SRT data collection effortless
Simple, easy way to quickly take data. The option to email the results of the therapy session streamlines documentation.
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.
Developer Response ,
We're sorry you're disappointed. You can ask Apple for a refund for any app that does not function how you expect. However, this is exactly how the app is meant to work. The spaced retrieval therapy method is entirely about asking the same question at expanding intervals of time. This app helps you keep track of the question, the time (doubled or halved), and the data on whether it was correct or not. The email report summarizes this data for you to export.

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.
