Treatment Software Proven Effective

Computer-assisted speech therapy has been clinically proven as effective.

"Computers can be powerful clinical tools.", 
from clinical study by Dr. Katz & Wertz. The efficacy of computer-provided reading treatment for chronic aphasic adults. [J Speech Lang Hear Res. 1997 Jun;40(3):493-507. ]

"Specific measures of language function can be broadly, positively, and significantly influenced by computer-based language therapy in chronic aphasia",
From a Study by
Aftonomos LB, Steele RD, Wertz RT, Promoting recovery in chronic aphasia with an interactive technology, Arch Phys Med Rehabil. 1997 Aug;78(8):841-6. ]

While no computerized therapy can (or should) replace a speech therapist,  therapy software, such as the Aphasia Tutor series, can be very effective, as demonstrated by numerous clinical research.

Efficacy Results (research data that appeared in 1997 article by Dr. Katz)

The study measured the patients' AQ (Aphasia Quotient) using the WAB (Western Aphasia Battery).  

Dr. Richard Katz, a well known researcher in the Speech/Language Pathology field,  recently published a detailed study confirming  the effectiveness (efficacy) of computer software for treating language-based deficits, specifically aphasia.  He graphed the outcomes data and made several conclusions in favor of computerized therapy.

He compared the following scenarios:

  1. Computer Reading Treatment - Each patient received 3 hours per week of therapy (for 26 weeks) using software specifically designed for language therapy (for a total of 78 hours of computer therapy).  
  2. Generic Computer Simulation software (such as video games,  etc.)  not designed specifically for language therapy.
  3. No Treatment - The patient received no treatment
Conclusions of the Study
  1. Computer reading treatment requires only minimal assistance from a clinician

  2. Improvement on the computer reading tasks generalizes to improvement in language performance

  3. Improvement results from the language content of the software, not simply stimulation provided by a computer

  4. The computer reading treatment for aphasia which they employed is efficacious.

Speech pathologists around the world use Bungalow Software's speech-therapy programs.
