participate in the conversation. Created by a speech-language pathologist
and physician team, MedConcerns combines a comprehensive medical
assessment with the strategies that help people with aphasia and other
communication difficulties understand information and clearly share their
concerns! Because the communication tools are built into the app, no
training is required to use this communication aid!

The MedConcerns app combines nonverbal symbols, spoken output, and
print to make patient-provider communication easier and more effective.

Relative of aphasia patient

My sister has had a hard time speaking after her stroke
This app is a wonderful way to communicate with her when she is trying to tell me what’s bothering her. I might never have understood her without it.
