Comprehension TherAppy It is great for working on comprehension skills with anyone, child or adult, with communication issues. I use it with my son for practicing his comprehension of nouns, for now, but it has adjectives and verbs as well. It is excellent for developing comprehension skills, and is very customizable.

Aphasia-friendly interface avoids use of professional jargon and features clear symbols for independent use by children and adults

Client can initiate a repetition of the stimulus as they need it in “Listen” and “Listen&Read” modes

Automatic scoring tracks success and progress on-screen
Results can be e-mailed in table and report-ready format so clients can keep their therapist informed of their progress for telepractice and therapists can send results to themselves for charting later, using the copy-and-paste ready format to decrease documentation time
