Conversation TherAppy Goals

Aphasia: This app is perfect for aphasia group and individual therapy. Use the Describe question for rich stimuli for Response Elaboration Therapy. Many of the Decide questions require only a single word response, selecting one of the words given as an option, allowing people with aphasia to assert their choices more easily. The Brainstorm questions work on generative naming beyond the simple category level. The goal of using the app could be to self-cue when having word-finding difficulty by tracing the first letter of the word or using a synonym – any question can be used to elicit spontaneous speech to practice strategy use. When people with aphasia move to the sentence and conversation level of therapy, it can sometimes be difficult to come up with things to talk about. This app will be your go-to tool for higher-level therapy.
