Your tools provided the recollections I needed to return home and continue steps to get back to the world I’d known before my brain damage. After three years at Willow Brook in Michigan, I had completed all the available recovery-training. My last work there with Parrot software was very helpful, and enabled some of the critical recovery steps.
Thank you for Parrot Software. I had a “mild” stroke in September (no muscle involvement), but have struggled with voice instructions. Parrot really has saved the day for me. As frustrating as it is to get it wrong all the time, I’ve found myself making progress. I also find my speech is improved with this. I can use it when I want, over and over again, and don’t have to think about someone getting bored or irritated with me! It’s a perfect “app” for the internet. You can go through the menu to see where you’re weak…then pick the weak ones and go. It’s great. Thanks again.
I want to let you know that I believe that “The Parrot” has helped my brain function during the past months. My wife agrees on this. I had a stroke 2 years and 9 months ago. Last spring, we realized that my executive function aspect was significantly decreased and that I needed to heal more in that area.– We were on Maui at the time that a tidal wave was approaching and I was not able to function quickly. So, as soon as we returned home; I started my subscription to “Parrot Software– we saw improvements within a couple of months. Thank you for your contribution to my healing.
We were introduced to Parrot Software by our son’s Speech Language Pathologist while he was at Shepherd Center undergoing rehabilitation after sustaining a moderate to severe TBI. His major speech problem was anomic aphasia. We found Parrot Software to be quite helpful. In November of 2008 we returned home and continued rehabilitation at the local hospital. We introduced Parrot Software to his new SLP. The new SLP was impressed and immediately incorporated the software into her therapy plans. For the most part our son has recovered all of his speech abilities. We tried to take advantage of neuroplasticity early in his recovery by helping and encouraging our son to spend three to four hours a day performing the exercises in Parrot Software and Lumosity. He also spends an hour a day exercising physically. Our son’s recovery has been exciting and gratifying. But, there is one area we have not been able to achieve substantial progress.
