Patient hears and/or reads directions and follows them by moving shapes on the screen with the mouse or keyboard. If the patient answers incorrectly, program provides helpful suggestions in a human voice, like "that's the wrong shape. You should be moving the large red triangle".
Every time you run the program it creates a new lesson with as many exercises as you want to work on.
Challenge for anyone: 200 difficulty levels.
Easiest: "Select the square"
Most difficult: 3 step instruction with shapes, colors and sizes
"Put the large red triangle above the small blue square, then put the mall green square above the large white circle, after you put the large green square to the left of the small blue triangle."
1. Number of steps
2. Complexity of the shapes
3. Extra shapes
This flexible therapy program also lets you work on:
Shows (or speaks) instructions. Instructions then disappears and patient follows them from memory.
Patient follows the instructions that are spoken to him/her. Written instructions are not shown.
Patient reads and follows written instructions. The program can also speak the instructions if needed.
Written-only version also available (If you only need the written direction following, or do not have a sound card, we also have the basic Direction Following (written only) version. This is the same as Direction Following Out Loud+, but does not have any verbal component. All directions are written-only. That version is less expensive.)
