Aphasia Tutor (AT) program series

Aphasia Tutor is a series of programs (AT series) that improve Speech, word-retrieval, reading and writing.

These programs were specially designed for those who have had a brain injury (such as a stroke) which impairs the language center of the brain.

The exercises are organized in increasing difficulty, beginning with letters, then words, sentences, paragraphs and stories.  Each program targets a different skill area or skill level, and each contain many different lessons at different difficulty levels.  For information on each program, click on one of the links to the right.  Multiple programs can be used at one time.

You can purchase purchase individual modules (programs) or save money by buying a package of programs.

Typical Usage
These programs provide interactive personal speech/language practice for patients suffering from CVA, TBI, CHI., or exhibiting aphasia symptoms. With multiple difficulty levels, multimedia feedback, and "hints", Aphasia Tutor provides exercises which are challenging and feedback that teaches and encourages.

Why these programs are so effective

All Bungalow programs are designed to be used independently by the patient at home (or in therapy).  This independence allows the patient to work at their own speed, gain confidence, motivation and empowerment as they participate fully in their recovery. This is accomplished through the following unique features designed by Bungalow's speech therapist....

  • Hints - User can click on the Hints button or press the <control> key on the keyboard to receive a hint in the fill-in-the-blank levels. (
  • Clear, multimedia cueing for correct/incorrect answers.  Provides motivating feedback on a correct answer.
  • Challenge without failure.  Like physical exercise, you want to work up a "mental sweat" but not pull a mental muscle.  This program provides a variety of difficulty levels and never leaves the user confused.  If a question is missed, the program allows additional tries and makes the question easier.  So, a fill-in-the blank question is asked.  User gets some letters wrong.  Program shows which were right and gives another chance to answer.  User gets it wrong again.  Program defaults to multiple choice and lets the user try again.  User still misses the question.  Program lets user know what the correct answer was by blinking the correct answer.
There are also advantages for clinicians, such as saving time and providing an extra service (free demo disks) to patients.

Computer Requirements

Detailed Answer

  • PC with Windows 95  or higher.

    That means Windows 95, 98, ME, 2000, XP, or Vista. 
    If your computer has a Start button in the lower left comer, you've got one of those versions.  If your computer has enough power to run Windows 95 it has enough memory and speed to run our programs. Have a Macintosh computer?  There are several options for your Macintosh.

  • Sound Card

    If  your PC ever plays music (even  just at start up) it has a sound card.  If it has external speakers, it probably has a sound card.  Speakers plug into the sound card.

  • Microphone

    These are not expensive. We sell them for $9.50.

  • Display  (sometimes called Screen or Moniwtor)

    256 color display (sometimes called "8 bit" color display).  We have not seen a modern computer without this display since the year 2000.

  • 20 MB Hard Drive space per program.

    Most computers 5 years old old or newer have  1000 to 20,000 MB Hard Drives.
