This project endeavors to create an innovative software solution within the field of aphasia rehabilitation, by combining the advantages of currently utilized applications for restoring communicative skills.

By investigating the theories and methods used in regular speech therapy, and exploring the potential of authoring systems and web based training, an online training platform for speech therapists and their clients has been developed through multiple iterations.

As a side project, the system has been examined from a business perspective, as it is the intention to launch a company around the concept.

Lastly, the product has been evaluated by speech therapists and aphasics across the country, by testing its capabilities and effect in a realistic scenario for a two month period.
