Category Therapy is a professional speech therapy app that practices mental organization skills for individuals with language challenges due to stroke, brain injury, or developmental disorders. You’ll see why speech-language pathologists & families “absolutely love this app,” calling it “highly recommended,” “my go-to app for categories,” & “well worth it!”

BETTER ORGANIZATION MEANS BETTER UNDERSTANDING
When mental organization skills (the ability to group items & name common characteristics) are lost or damaged, it affects our basis for structuring & understanding the world. Category Therapy encourages re-learning categorization skills by providing unlimited therapy using evidence-based exercises on your mobile device.

IMPROVE CATEGORIZATION SKILLS FROM SIMPLE TO COMPLEX
Category Therapy features four exercises:
Find | Classify | Exclude | Add One
and three levels of difficulty:
Concrete | Subcategories | Abstract

Category Therapy helps patients develop categorization skills along a hierarchy from simple to complex. It was designed by a Speech-Language Pathologist as a stroke recovery tool and is perfect for people who have difficulty speaking or finding words.

“What Category Therapy has managed to do is to collate four kinds of activities into one tight, comprehensive app & spruced it up with customizable field sizes, filtered target categories, cue types & best of all, difficulty levels that range from concrete to abstract categories.” — Carla C, SLP of iSPeakApp

MAKE THE MOST OF THERAPY SESSIONS
Category Therapy fits within a collaborative rehab model, seamlessly linking the clinic to the home, while connecting therapists to families & clients. It’s a useful assessment tool for professionals to gain insight into the cognition & comprehension of non-verbal patients, and the comprehensiveness of the app allows for extended engagement & practice time. Category Therapy is simple & intuitive for both professionals and patients, providing more repetitions & faster improvements.

“The ability to e-mail results makes therapy so much easier because you can focus your time on explaining why different choices were correct or incorrect & actually teach rather than have to write down results.” — Jessica C, SLP of Consonantly Speaking

DETAILED DESIGN EMPOWERS USERS
The clean, high-contrast layout uses realistic photos, recorded voice & easy-to-read print. Interactive text & icons enable the user to hear an item, category, or instruction stated aloud. With 700 images in 70 categories, four activities with three levels, & multiple settings, this app has literally thousands of unique exercises.

“It will be a LONG time before you run out of content to use with one patient/student, & the app’s fantastic settings options will allow you to use it with a variety of individuals, regardless of cognitive abilities.” — Aubrey K, SLP of Speechie Apps

Category Therapy is valuable for learners of all ages & abilities. Users with autism, Down syndrome & other special needs will benefit from learning categories with this app. Category Therapy is available for half-price through the Apple Education Volume Purchase Program.
