  • Save time with automatic progress-tracking.

    Results of each session are saved, by client, to a file.  You can print this or copy it into other documentation.

  • Automatically remembers settings for each patient

    So, when Mr. Jones comes back in for his next visit, you just select Mr. Jones and the program remembers how he did last time, what lesson he was using, and what settings you used for him.

  • Repetition Practice

    Repeat the first 20 questions 5 times, or repeat as many questions as you like as many times as you like.  You can also control the length of the lesson without repetition, such as having a 25 exercise lesson.  (Bungalow programs have so many exercises we've found that even one lesson can be too much for a patient to do in one sitting.

  • Memory training

    You can set the program to display the cue to display temporarily or until they press any key.  Then the cue disappears, and the question appears.
