Language Training Apps for Concussion and Brain Injury


Research shows that intensive therapy regimens with a speech therapist are ideal, especially for young adults who are 3 or more months after their brain injury. Unfortunately, insurance doesn’t always approve a high-frequency speech therapy program, and finances can be limiting.


While they are not meant to replace individualized practice with an SLP, apps are a useful way to promote more intensive practice by providing activities for more language learning at home. There are several apps available for use on a smartphone, chromebook, or tablet. Below is a quick summary of a few of the most well-known language therapy apps.


Constant Therapy:

Constant Therapy has more than 500,000 individual evidence-based exercises for speech, language, and cognition. By sharing your account information with your SLP, she can assign you specific exercises and track your progress. Constant Therapy offers a free 14-day trial. Afterwards, there is a monthly charge.


TalkPath Therapy:

Lingraphica’s TalkPath Therapy provides more than 11,500 speech, language, and cognitive exercises. TalkPath Therapy also provides an “aphasia-friendly” news source. SLPs can also link accounts with their clients to help facilitate and focus the training. This app is completely free.


Tactus Therapy:

Tactus Therapy offers various speech therapy apps for adults with aphasia. They are evidence-based, designed by an SLP, and are easy to use. Once downloaded, they don’t require Wi-Fi. Each app targets a different skill, including comprehension, naming, and reading. The prices range from $5-$25 with discount bundles available and free lite versions to try.
