Ever wished you could switch up the order of your exercises? Ever wonder what exercises Constant Therapy has to offer that you haven’t seen in your homework schedule? Look no further! We have a great tool called Self Guided Mode that allows you to customize your Constant Therapy exercises to your preferences, and even experiment with different ones without impacting your overall scores. Read on to learn how to use Self-Guided Mode.
One of the things that make Constant Therapy so powerful, is its ability to customize and individualize therapy. While our NeuroPerformance Engine will recommend therapy activities based on your initial answers to questions at sign-up and on past performance, you might be wondering what other options you have – after all, we have over 85 different therapy activities to choose from!
Helpful things you can do in Self-Guided Mode
- Add new therapy activities to your homework schedule
- Remove therapy activities from your homework schedule
- Change the level of your therapy activities
- Change the number of exercises of each therapy activity you complete
- Change the order of your therapy activities on your homework schedule
- Try new therapy activities
Before we dive into how to use Self-Guided Mode, a few important things to keep in mind:
- If you’re working with a clinician, you may want to check with them first before you change your homework schedule
- If you complete a task while in Self-Guided Mode, those scores will not impact your overall performance data – think of it as a “practice” or “exploring” mode
- If you are a caregiver making updates for your loved one, make sure you exit back to the home screen before you return Constant Therapy to the user
- Constant Therapy is always keeping your exercises fresh and customized for YOU – all based on your data! Unless your clinician has disabled the feature that automatically updates your tasks for you, once you’ve finished a homework session, our NeuroPerformance Engine will update your tasks – that means that if you made some adjustments to your homework schedule, they may change if your performance data is suggesting that it’s time for some new therapy activities

7 steps to get started in Self-Guided Mode – with illustrations
With that, let’s dive in with 7 easy steps.
- To access Self-Guided Mode, first tap “Settings” in the top right corner of your app’s home screen.
- Tap “Use self-guided mode” at the top of your settings menu
- Now you’re in Self-Guided Mode! On the left, you’ll see our library of “Available exercises”. From here, you can tap on any of the triangles to expand the list of therapy activities within that area. On the right, you’ll see your “Assigned exercises” – those are the homework tasks the app guides you through when you log in and hit “Start”.
- To add a therapy exercise to your homework schedule, click the purple “+” button to the right of the therapy exercise name. To delete a therapy exercise from your homework, click the red circle to the left of it and then click the red “Delete” button that will appear on the right.
- To change the order of your therapy activities, hold down on the three lines to the right of a therapy activity in your homework, and then drag it up or down in the list.
- To change the difficulty level of a therapy activity, or how many times you repeat that therapy activity within a homework schedule, tap on the task from your “Assigned exercises” list. To change the difficulty level, tap on the dropdown next to “level”. To change the number of exercises, tap the pull-down menu next to “repeats”. Once you’ve adjusted to your liking, press “save”.
- You can also try out a task while in Self-Guided Mode. Just tap on a task from the “Available exercises” or “Assigned exercises” list, and then click start. Remember, the app won’t record this data.
