What can you do when speech therapy has ended or when you have stopped progressing with speech therapy? It's a fact that most people just don't get enough speech therapy. Insurance usually won't cover the ongoing intensive treatment that is needed and with cuts to medicaid and medicare you now get only a few sessions. This "too little" and "too short-term" approach almost never works. It's the sad truth that many people who have aphasia, apraxia, or other forms of speech loss don't recover--at least not to their full potential. Yet this doesn't have to be. We've shown that by using the Sensory Trigger Method for speech recovery it's not only possible, most people improve within 6 to 8 weeks of daily practice...and they can keep improving for up to 5 years and beyond. The new approach for speech recovery often works even after years of frustration with aphasia and apraxia.

Our "whole brain" speech recovery programs and kits use the Sensory Trigger Method to tap into brain pathways from early childhood and the undamaged speech center on the other side of the brain. These special techniques are based on the brain research that shows that the other side of the brain can reconnect speech and that the brain can reorganize and grow new connections on both sides of the brain. This is called "brain plasticity". Our software programs, guides and materials will give you effective, motivating ways to make new pathways in the brain to unlock speech. Our innovative aphasia and apraxia speech practice program is designed to go beyond the limits of speech therapy and make speech recovery possible even in severe cases. It combines well with speech therapy, but can be used as a "stand alone" and done by anyone--even at home or by family members helping their loved ones in the hospital or care facility.

The difference between what we do
and other programs is how
sight, sound and touch
are integrated into every activity
to make new connections in the brain
for speech recovery.

Using the kinesthetic-tactile sensory
neuro-pathways that connect from the
hand to the speech center
the Sensory Trigger Method really
does break through speech barriers.

Personal Sensory Trigger Training teaches you how to bring back speech in everyday life situations, so you will go beyond just talking with the computer programs.

Combined with the use of the most frequently spoken words and conversational words, the method and materials take most of the frustration out of getting speech back. We have proved that even in "hopeless" cases, speech recovery is still possible using the Sensory Trigger Method. In addition, we have shown that the time frame for recovery is up to two years and beyond--not six months as previously believed. This is why we have had so much success, even with "untreatable" cases of aphasia. How Barbara Dean Schacker discovered the Sensory Trigger: Story of my father's amazing speech recovery.

Studies have shown that "Intensive Speech Therapy" programs are 85% more effective than 1 or 2 times a week therapy sessions. Yet these programs are hard to find and are expensive. With our Whole Speech Practice Kits, families and therapists now have a way to provide intensive speech recovery programs, even when time with the patient is severely limited by insurance cut-offs or Medicare limitations. Our family friendly programs and materials bring everyone together. It is also now known that social and family interaction can make the difference between a person who recovers their speech and those who do not. The Sensory Trigger Method, is a daily, go-at-your-own-pace speech practice and interaction that really works. The Sensory Trigger Method and our Speech Practice Kits are easily integrated into speech therapy programs and aphasia support groups. Professionally evaluated and clinically tested.

Evidence Base For the Sensory Trigger Method: Evidence base documents, articles, resources 

The Sensory Trigger Method was clinically tested in 1991 by Larry A. Boles, M.S. CCC-SLP, University of California, Davis, Medical Center, Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation -

All participants who had previously plateaued and were considered "untreatable" with speech therapy, benefited and showed significant improvement using the program and method.
