As much speech therapy as you want, when you want it
Stroke or brain injury can have a major impact on your ability to communicate through speaking, writing, reading and understanding. This can be devastating for everyone, including family and friends.
Fortunately, therapy can help.
Research has shown that speech therapy for aphasia is most effective when it is carried out intensively, 4-5 times a week. It’s also most effective when it’s personally tailored to your needs.
But even if you’re lucky enough to be receiving speech therapy, it’s unusual to be able to access this much face-to-face therapy. Cuespeak provides a tool to enable you to access unlimited amounts of therapy designed by specialist Speech and Language Therapists and configurable very precisely to your own needs.
You can even make personalised exercises to work on your own vocabulary, such as names of family, friends and significant places.
Anyone with reasonable vision and hearing can use Cuespeak. The touchscreen interface is highly intuitive, and no experience of computers is necessary. Cuespeak is designed to cater for the needs of everyone, even those with severe communication difficulties.
Ideally Cuespeak should be configured by an experienced Speech-Language professional, but there is a lot of help available within the app to select appropriate exercises if you do not have professional support. Find out more

You’ll get the most out of Cuespeak if it’s been configured correctly to your particular needs, ideally with the expertise of an experienced speech-language professional. However, we recognise that not everyone can access such help. We have therefore included help within the app to allow non-professionals to select approriate exercises as well as create personalised ones. If you intend to use Cuespeak without professional support, we highly recommend reading the user manual.
Yes, there is an increasing body of evidence that apps can contribute very significantly to the process of recovery from acquired speech and language difficulties.
Sorry, Cuespeak only runs on Apple devices for now.
