The Comprehension Aphasia app was created for adults and children who present with Aphasia (an acquired language disorder) due to stroke or other brain injuries. This app can also be used by individuals with Central Auditory Processing Disorder, cognitive deficits such as decreased attention, receptive language disorders, and Autism.
The Comprehension Aphasia app focuses on auditory comprehension of questions and directions in the following activities: Yes-no questions, basic directions with one element, basic directions with two elements, and temporal and conditional directions. All of the activities challenge users with different levels of difficulty and include nouns, verbs, adjectives, and function of objects. This app contains clear real-life pictures, more than 1,700 professionally pre-recorded directions, and a feature allowing users to set background noise, making following directions more challenging.
The Comprehension Aphasia app offers flexibility for speech and language pathologists or caregivers as it allows users to change settings, such as turning off the audio, allowing users to give their own directions. Users can select randomization, which prevents clients from simply memorizing the directions. In addition, users track their progress and e-mail the results for each activity at the end of the session. Users can choose from three different types of noise and set the background noise during the session. This feature is useful for individuals with decreased sustained attention or with Central Auditory Processing Disorder.
