Summary of app features: Constant Therapy has a library of over 100,000 cognitive and speech exercises for patients.

This app is useful for: any patient with speech difficulties, such as recovering after stroke, TBI, or other speech disorders. Neurologists can recommend this app to patients struggling with these skills.
Good User Review: “...I work in a skilled nursing facility. Both my patients and I love it. I have been a speech therapist for 31 years and have accumulated quite a collection of workbooks. However, since I am using Constant Therapy, I will not be using those workbooks very much. I love the variety of exercises and how it provides a summary of the patient’s performance. This makes report writing and data collection a breeze. My patients want to do their “homework”. The staff at Constant Therapy are so helpful whenever I have questions...” — Vocab guru on the App Store
Limitations: The patient subscription, at $24.99/month or $249.99/year, makes Constant Therapy one of the more expensive apps on the App Store. Some of the exercises on the app may be too easy for some patients with minor cognitive impairments, making the high cost not worth it.
Alternatives: There are some similar cognitive training apps that may also be useful for patients, such as Lumosity or MindMate. It is important to note these apps are not as tailored to speech impairments compared to Constant Therapy.
