Speech Remedy, a leading provider of speech therapy rehabilitation materials focused on the adult population (16 years of age and older), launched two new products today at the 2010 American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) Convention, in Philadelphia, PA.
SR-Cognition Deluxe and SR-Cognitive Profile are the latest additions to Speech Remedy’s highly successful catalog of speech-language-cognitive rehabilitation materials, currently being used by thousands of SLP’s and other allied health professionals around the world.
SR-Cognition Deluxe includes everything contained in Speech Remedy’s popular all-inclusive SR-Cognition kit for adult cognitive rehabilitation and adds two new products, all at a discounted price. The deluxe version includes: two workbooks (one with easel option and one with re-useable, reproducible pages), featuring hundreds of therapeutic activities; 4 photo card decks (85 cards total), 20 picture cards and a dry erase marker, all in a sturdy portable tote box; as well as 5 supplemental photo card decks (25 cards per deck): Safety & Awareness, Problem Solving, Confrontational Naming, Categorization & Scanning, and 5-Step Sequences; and the new SR-Cognitive Profile.

SR-Cognition Deluxe is the most comprehensive, up-to-date adult speech therapy product on the market today, created by Speech Remedy founders Joanna Boyer and Terri Tarnoff Snyder, both certified practicing speech-language pathologists. Like Speech Remedy’s other products, the SR-Cognition Deluxe bundle will help to rehabilitate individuals who have sustained a stroke, traumatic brain injury, cranial resection, tumor, or are suffering from degenerative conditions such as dementia, ALS, or multiple sclerosis. It may also aid high school aged individuals with developmental challenges by providing functional and independent life skills training.
- SR-COGNITIVE PROFILE
This new product, created by Boyer and Snyder in conjunction with certified speech-language pathologist, Deborah Schott, measures a client’s cognitive-linguistic abilities by providing a profile of their level of dependence during routine daily tasks. An 8-point rating scale focuses on Pragmatics, Orientation, Attention & Scanning, Memory, Receptive & Expressive Language, Reasoning & Problem Solving and Executive Control to provide a snapshot of a client's level of dependence and offer a rationale for comprehensive follow-up.
SR-Cognitive Profile is an 8.5"x11" 40 page tablet, containing a check-off system for allied health professionals to complete during routine activities of daily living (ADLs), including: dressing, grooming, eating, toileting, transfers, and oral-peripheral exam. The profile may be used stand-alone or as a precursor to the SR-Cognition kit. The colored cognitive areas indicated on this profile correspond with the tabs in the SR-Cognition Master Workbook and allow for efficient transition to therapy.
