Tactus makes a line of apps for those affected by aphasia, apraxia and dysarthria.  This includes victims of cognitive-communication disorders, dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease, brain injury or TBI, stroke, autism or ASD, Down syndrome, developmental delay or other special needs.

This line of apps features automated scoring, email reports, full-color photos, functional vocabulary, self-cueing and simple navigation, with lite versions available for nearly every app.

Conversation TherAppy, for instance is an app that is used to target speech, language or cognitive goal.  There is an info screen at the beginning that suggests ways to use each question on the app.
