Self-guided mode: How to customize your therapy and harness Constant Therapy’s 85+ therapy activities to meet your goals

Constant Therapy | Brain health

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
  • If you run into trouble, call our friendly Support Team at 1-888-233-1399

  1. Janis I Berard-Aubin

    I’ve completed some math exercises to calculate “tip” on a receipt. The instructions were not clear enough to know if I should tip on subtotal, or include the tax….so I got it wrong, because I don’t tip on tax. And it did not allow me to Mark “correct”.

    • Constant Therapy

      Hello Janis! Thank you so much for this feedback, we greatly appreciate it. We will work on clarifying those instructions and include it in a future app update. For now, we recommend calculating the tip based on the final total (including tax). If it is still marking your answers as incorrect, please feel free to report this via email for further investigation at Hope this is helpful!

  2. Eric Johnson

    Hello. I’ve had Constant Therapy for a year. So far so good. What I’m really after is a module to increase my spoken fluency – if I’m given enough time, I’m certain I can pronounce the word, but I am rushed, as you are in neural speech, that sound is garbled. No doubt I’ll have to live with it but I sure would like to work on it. Any suggestions?

    • Constant Therapy

      Hi Eric, thank you for your question! To work on spoken fluency, we recommend these four Constant Therapy tasks: Name Pictures, Name Verbs, Form and Say Active Sentences, and Form and Say Passive Sentences. We also suggest consulting with a Speech-Language Pathologist or clinician for more specific guidance on how to achieve your goals! Hope this is helpful as you continue your recovery journey.

  3. Eric Johnson

    Hello, I’ve been using Constant Therapy for about a year and so far so good. I had a stroke 5 years ago and much of my oral speech has come back. What didn’t come back was my verbal frequency. Which exercises should I increase?


    • Constant Therapy

      Hello Eric, so glad to hear that you have been making progress and that you are staying motivated! To address verbal frequency, we suggest these three Constant Therapy exercises: Say Words in a Category, Identify Picture Features, and Identify Picture Categories. As always, we also encourage you to speak with a healthcare provider for more specific guidance. Let us know if you have any other questions, and we wish you the best!
