SentenceShaper has been studied and used successfully for over a decade. Research studies* have shown that the program's unique support allows many people to record more grammatical and content-rich speech than they could produce on their own. These effects can be quite striking, and often lead to improvements in spontaneous speech.
FOR LANGUAGE THERAPY: A set of built-in workbooks helps users practice sentence structures ranging from simple to complex. There are also workbooks to elicit speech on different topics such as family, likes and dislikes, memories, and advice. Or use the program to create speech on ANY topic of interest to the user.
FOR SOCIAL CONNECTIVITY: SentenceShaper allows you to share your enhanced speech productions from within the program. Your speech and pictures are turned into videos that you share via email, messaging apps, Facebook, Instagram, or other options in the iOS Sharing Menu.
SentenceShaper Lite allows you to experience the program’s unique sentence-building support for free. The Lite version also includes sample exercises from each of the workbooks, and allows you to add text in any language. The social connectivity and editing features described above are available only in the full version of the program.

WHO CAN USE IT?
SentenceShaper was developed for people with non-fluent aphasia, but the rich support it provides for speech production may be helpful with conditions such as fluent aphasia, children's language disorders, or even speech intelligibility disorders. The integration of text makes it an excellent tool for reading programs.
SentenceShaper was studied in over a decade of research funded by the National Institutes of Health and other organizations, with internationally recognized neuropsychologists.
The idea behind the program: There is a lot of evidence that people with aphasia still know their language. Unfortunately, however, their language processing is slowed down – it takes them longer to think of words, and words vanish from memory before they can be combined into sentences. SentenceShaper can help you tap into these hidden language abilities. How? By letting you hold words and phrases in memory long enough to combine them into sentences. Once you record a word, you will not have to keep it in memory — just click its icon and it will be played back. And when you are creating sentences, you can play back the sentence in progress to make sure it is correct and to activate more words and phrases.
While we recommend the guidance of a language therapy professional, SentenceShaper can be used on your own at home. SentenceShaper’s unique ability to help you create and share your own speech encourages practice, which is crucial to the recovery process.
