Speech Remedy Launches Speech Therapy App Adult-focused iOS App to Rebuild Language Skills
Speech Remedy's SR-Naming Speech Therapy App

Belmont, CA (RPRN) 05/23/12 — --- Speech Remedy, a leading provider of adult-focused speech-language-cognitive rehabilitation materials, has launched a mobile iOS version of their successful Confrontational Naming photo card deck. 

SR-Naming,” is an adult-focused interactive app for building receptive and expressive language and word finding skills, now available at the Apple iTunes store.  The mobile application is compatible with Apple’s iPhone, iPad and iTouch devices.

SR-Naming was designed to aid adult clients (16 years and older) and may be used with or without the supervision of a Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP).

An easy-to use-touch screen guides users through real-life photographs involving common objects accompanied by voice and visual prompts.

There are three distinct levels; beginner, intermediate and advanced for both expressive and receptive tasks.  Levels are distinguished by degree of difficulty (e.g. cues provided for expressive language task – multiple-choice, phonemic cue, open ended response; or number of items presented in field of view (2, 3 or 4) for receptive language task). 

The application comes loaded with approximately 55 photo stimuli and additional stimuli plan to be added over time at no additional cost to the user.

The app is created by Speech Remedy (SR) founders Joanna Boyer and Terri Tarnoff Snyder, both certified practicing speech-language pathologists and developers of the company’s widely used comprehensive, adult-focused cognitive therapy products.

“The SR-Naming app grew from the success of the printed photo card version and the demand for technology-based interactive learning tools,” says, Joanna Boyer. “A recent SR field study suggested that 70% of respondents are currently using advanced technology solutions for delivering speech-language therapy and 60% plan to use advanced technology within the next year.  The need for adult focused therapy apps clearly exists and we are pleased to offer one of the first apps of its kind.”                                                                     

The app is modeled from Speech Remedy’s Confrontational Naming  Photo Card Deck, which is one of eight photo card decks currently available from the company.  These photo card decks promote skills related to sustained attention, visual scanning, word retrieval, vocabulary and word relationships, articulation, sequential thought, topic maintenance, problem identification, critical thinking and safety awareness.  Photos include up-to-date images with real-life situations or objects and suggested questions and answers for discussion are available on the back of each card.  Speech Remedy’s photo card decks and new SR-Naming App may be used stand-alone for therapy or in conjunction with other SR products.
