Zachary Smith, MS, CCC-SLP |

Constant Therapy strives to bring accessible therapy to millions of individuals recovering from a stroke or brain injury, or living with another neurological condition. A crucial part of effective therapy is to continuously push the brain with fresh challenges. That’s why we’re excited to call your attention to two new Constant Therapy exercises: “Put Concepts in Order” and “Remember Information About a Person.”  Read on for more information about these new exercises!

New Constant Therapy exercise #1: “Put Concepts in Order

"Put Concepts in Order" is a new Constant Therapy exercise that can help with analytical reasoning skills.

This exercise is a new addition to the Constant Therapy App’s “Analytical Reasoning” lineup, and it challenges you to arrange concepts (such as words or objects) in a precise order based on prompts. For example, the exercise might ask you to put objects in order from smallest to largest based on their size.

Things to know about “Put Concepts in Order” for clinicians

  • This exercise targets a patient’s analytical reasoning skills. It also hones other areas of communication and cognition, such as organization, categorization, and critical thinking.
  • The exercise assumes a foundation of single word reading skills. If your patient isn’t quite there yet, that can be a focus area for improvement through your therapy sessions, which will help bolster their success with “Put Concepts in Order”!

Things to know about “Put Concepts in Order” for patients and caregivers

  •  As a higher-level cognitive task, “Put Concepts in Order” may seem difficult at first.  Don’t be intimidated! Through continued practice using the Constant Therapy App at home and with your speech-language pathologist (SLP), you can make progress with this exercise!
  • The ultimate goal of this Constant Therapy exercise is to help you improve your analytical reasoning and organizational skills so that functional, everyday tasks become easier! You may even wish to pair these daily activities with your Constant Therapy program to further your success. As your accuracy on this exercise improves, you may well notice that everyday tasks like organizing your schedule become easier!

New Constant Therapy exercise #2: “Remember Information About a Person

This exercise can be found under two skill areas in the Constant Therapy app: “Auditory Comprehension” and “Memory.” Its versatility lies in its ability to address diverse areas of communicative and cognitive function, depending on your needs. In this exercise, you will be provided with a short verbal paragraph containing information about a person. This could include their name, age, occupation, where they live, and their hobbies. Following that, you will receive a set of questions that probes your grasp of the information, gauging both comprehension and retention.

"Remember Information About a Person" is a new Constant Therapy exercise that helps with auditory comprehension and memory skills.

Things to know about “Remember Information About a Person” for clinicians

  • Like many other Constant Therapy exercises, “Remember Information About a Person” targets multiple communicative and cognitive domains. The ultimate objective is to offer  patients a range of tasks with functional therapeutic value.
  • By better comprehending, retaining, and recalling information through engaging with this new exercise, patients will ideally improve their ability to participate in activities they enjoy or need to perform.

Things to know about “Remember Information About a Person” for patients and caregivers

  • With steady practice of this new Constant Therapy exercise, you may start to notice that you can better understand and remember information that is presented to you. A great way to measure your progress is by engaging in conversations with friends and family! These conversations test very similar skills as this new exercise does: they both demand understanding what’s being said and recalling it to respond appropriately.
  • You might also consider discussing your practice of “Remember Information About a Person” with your SLP so that it aligns with your broader treatment program and goals!

    Hi
    I love your material and use it with most of my HH patients however I do not see these new exercises available to me as a clinician when I open the app. I have had this app for several years now and recommend it to patients and fellow SLP’s. Please let me know how I can add these new exercises for putting concepts in order and remembering info about a person. These would definitely get used in my caseload.
    Thanks

    Suggestions.

    1. You should have a system reporting faults in the program. I’ve had occasions for the program froze without me being able to report it.

    2. I’m also involved with another program for another company. BrainHQ has a reminder service which I find very effective and helpful. You might want to look into it.

    Hello,

    I have looked at my CT Clinician app and am unable to find the new exercises “Remember Information about a Person” and “Put Concepts in Order”. Have they not been added yet, and if not, when will they be added? Or, did I perhaps miss an update?

    I look forward to hearing back from you.
