Speech & Language Recovery - Bungalow Software

There are very few products I would care to promote on this blog but this product is one I think is very beneficial to stroke survivors having problems with speech. 

We have demonstrated Bungalow's speech software at some of our camps and, Marylee, our camp Executive Director, speaks highly of it. She has used it with her husband John, who experienced a stroke in 2001. John started using several of the Bungalow modules daily in 2003 and Marylee saw dramatic improvement in his speech over the following two years. He went from barely speaking one word "sentences" to being able to carry on conversations in public.
I have mentioned this product in this blog before but I think it bears repeating.

I have taken the following off of the Bungalow web site to make it easy for you to access. However, if you wish to go directly to their site use this link:

Faster Recovery With Therapy Software

Chart from clinical study demostrating the effectiveness of aphasia treatment softwareMany stroke and brain-injury survivors don’t get enough insurance provided therapy for a full recovery and can’t afford additional therapy.  Without ongoing therapy practice (such as with the Bungalow Software programs) patients often do not improve, and they may worsen, as shown in this graph of the results of aclinical study of aphasia software.Clinical studies show that software-based treatment can speed recovery enormously by providing the practice and repetition that researchers agree helps recovery. Bungalow Software has helped people up to 20 years after their brain-injury.

Less frustration. More effective therapy.

One major obstacle to recovery is challenging the patient without frustrating them. If it's too challenging they won't be able to finish the exercises and become frustrated. If it's not challenging enough they won't retain what they are learning and may become bored. The Bungalow programs do more than simply grade the patient and show the correct answer.  If the patient answers incorrectly, they usually get a hint (perhaps an explanation of what they did wrong, or the first letter of the answer). These hints, combined with many different skill levels (as many as 200) in each program allows patients to work a more challenging level without becoming frustrated. Studies have shown this leads to better retention of what they've learned.  Read more about how it works >>

About Bungalow Software

Bungalow Software creates and sells software for Speech & Language therapy.  It was started in 1995 by Clay Nichols & Terri Brancewicz.  Most of the programs on this website were developed by Clay and Terri.  Terri, a speech pathologist, wanted programs for her patients to use independently at home for home speech therapy practice.  She turned to Clay who created the programs.  And then she asked for more.  And more.  Today, Bungalow serves thousands of customers around the world and has distributors in the USA, Europe, and Australia.  Read more >>Bungalow has been featured in the Stroke Connection magazine and on the national and regional newsand has presented seminars at the national ASHA Speech-Language Pathology conferences.
