SentenceShaper has been studied in government-funded grants with our research partners and others. These studies looked at two questions.
First, is SentenceShaper a helpful communication aid? (For example, can people say things with the program that they could not otherwise express?)
Second, is it an effective treatment tool? (For example, can people’s spontaneous speech get better if they spend time creating speech with SentenceShaper?)
Several small studies have revealed positive — and sometimes quite striking — effects of both types, for some people. These studies are summarized briefly in this section, and in our “Overview of SentenceShaper Research” which you can download from the “Manuals and Guides” section.
