Struct It: Sentence structure
Aim of the training
Aphasia – Sentence structure
Struct It offers 2 task areas:
The trainee learns the basic handling of verbs, adjectives and prepositions. Based on different types of tasks sentence structure is taught in an entertaining way.
A sentence with a gap is displayed. The trainee has to select the verb in correct time form, the appropriate adjective or the appropriate preposition by clicking on it.
In the area of phrases, a short, meaningful statement (sentence) must be formed. At first task, the phrase must be completed at the end, at second task, the phrase must be completed at the beginning.
Choice of exercise
Right after starting the training, the user selects the exercise. There are 2 task areas in Struct It.
The order of the exercises is not a graduation of the difficulty levels. Almost every task has different requirements, so that the type of disturbance is responsible for which tasks are more challenging for the person training.
Limit training duration
Limiting the training duration may be useful for time management or therapeutic reasons.
When you are clicking on “Limit training duration”, a slide control appears. By means of this slide control, the therapy duration can be set between 10 and 60 minutes.
Num tasks per level
This parameter is used to set how many tasks have to be solved by the training person before the level of difficulty is increased (in case of a good performance). If the tasks were too difficult, the level of difficulty can also decrease.
Pictures for terms
For (almost) every word used in training, one (or more) picture(s) is/are available. Overall, HeadApp has more than 10,000 labeled pictures. This helps the trainee to work out concepts whose meaning he (still) does not know.
Next to each word is a “picture” button. If the user clicks this button, a picture matching the term appears.
The option “With pictures for terms” can also be switched off, if the assistance via pictures is not desired or the trainee is distracted too much by the pictures.
Course of the training
After selecting the desired task area, several difficulty levels of a task are available.
Once a level has been selected, switching between difficulty levels and tasks will be autoadaptive.
The correct answer is picked from a selection by clicking (multiple choice). If the selection was correct, the button color changes to green, wrong answers are marked in red.
