Description from Developer
Writing TherAppy is a unique app for spelling practice for adults with brain injury or stroke as well as ESL speakers or children learning to spell.
**Try it for FREE in Language TherAppy Lite or purchase at a discount in the 4-in-1 Language TherAppy app!**
With 4 modes and 3 levels of difficulty in each, users have access to 12 different exercises to practice writing over 500 words + unlimited custom words!
*Spell What You See
*Spell What You Hear
Unlike other learn-to-spell apps, Writing TherAppy allows users to select and rearrange letter tiles until they are satisfied, choosing when to submit an answer, rather than letters only fitting into the correct spot. Writing TherAppy also has a built-in cueing hierarchy to give "hints" on each level, making the exercise one step easier to allow success on each trial. A virtual set of letter tiles makes therapy go faster with more repetitions in less time.
Now you can add your own words and pictures to create completely customized spelling lists! Learn to spell names, places, or words related to each user's needs.
This app features clear photographs, iconic graphics, and a clear North American male voice or UK English female voice. Users will benefit from the trial-and-error format and self-selected cues for learning these common words with graduated activities that will grow with them as they develop or improve.
Settings allow limiting the length of the words (3-10 letters), selecting capital or lowercase letters, designating which of 12 categories are presented, and enabling a child-friendly mode. For users with difficulty dragging, an alternative tapping access method is available. Speech-Language Pathologists, family members, and teachers can recommend the appropriate modes and levels for each user and receive e-mailed reports of results (ready for professional progress notes).
Writing TherAppy is another powerful app in Tactus Therapy Solutions' professionally-designed Language TherAppy suite of speech-language therapy apps. It is the perfect companion to Comprehension TherAppy, Naming TherAppy, and Reading TherAppy.
Our customers love this app! Read what they have to say:
★★★★★ I really like that this app can be used by both children and adults. I love the great real-life photographs used instead of cartoon pictures or line drawings. The functional, categorized vocabulary you use in your apps is appreciated!! I especially like the feature allowing older students/clients the opportunity to analyze their responses prior to submitted them. This app has great control over the length of the words selected, the voice quality is good, and clinicians will appreciate the data reporting! Great job!
★★★★★ Great app, highly engaging! I used this app with two of my aphasia clients- one in her 30s and one in his 50s. Both found it engaging and wanted to continue to use the app throughout their session. I like the different levels of difficulty
