Here’s what speech therapists are saying about WORDStim!
Linda Tucker-Simpson, M.A., CCC-SLP
“My client speaks more when she uses [WORDStim]. This is great for patient motivation.”
Ariana Ventura, M.A., CCC-SLP
“This game is very engaging while using evidence-based principals. The game format took away the sometimes clinical feel you can get providing treatment for anomia. It helps people stay motivated for longer and achieve a greater number of targets than using picture or word cards alone.”
Ann Jerz, M.A., CCC-SLP
“After using WordStim on my patients, I cannot say enough good things about the results. I work in a skilled nursing facility and this tool services a wide variety of patient populations. In particular, WORDStim motivates patients in a way more traditional therapies cannot. The inviting visual and tactile elements enhance a patient’s participation in verbal and non-verbal communication. During my experience, WORDStim has elicited greater patient participation during and across sessions. Clients can pull their own life experiences and cultures into therapy. As such, the therapist and clinician encounter becomes increasingly client driven and personalized. This game provides relevant stimuli which is easily adaptable to various levels of severity. Overall, WORDStim has shown itself to be a very comprehensive tool which targets and improves patients’ communication.”
