I asked the Twitterverse for the names of apps as ideas for inclusion in our ‘Communication Enrichment in Aphasia’ research project, run through the Communication Disability Centre at the University of Queensland. This is the resulting list! I cannot comment on any of the apps, I am just putting it here in case others want to see the responses in one place. Thanks for all of the contributors, especially @tactustherapy and @therabees who ran hot on ideas at the same time: (Apologies if the names/spelling of apps is incorrect – inclusion is not endorsement). Also, contact me if you can think of any others! Inclusion on this list does not indicate inclusion in our research – it’s just a list.
