Naming Therapy– This app helps people with aphasia and children with special needs to practice important naming and description skills.

You can also practice naming with over 400 photographs accompanied by clues. You can customize the tests by adding your photos and hints and assigning appropriate scores. The app keeps a record of which clue led you to choose the correct answer; reports are generated and sent to you via email.
Sono Flex – A vocabulary app that turns symbols into speech, Sono Flex allows nonverbal persons to access and use language.
