  • Therapy for all skill levels ...

    Graduated, increasing difficulty levels from the very "select the square", to the very complex, three step commands with 6 shapes of 2 sizes, in 8 colors.  The program lets you set the complexity of the directions, how detailed the shapes are (from just a 'square' to 'small red square'), add extra shapes to make it harder, and much, much more..

  • Flexible
    • Limit program to only certain colors for those who are color blind
    • Test reading and/or auditory comprehension
    • Test memory of written and/or spoken directions.
