When you lose the ability to group items and identify what they have in common, it gets in the way of your ability to understand, learn, and communicate. But with the right kind of practice, it’s possible to strengthen the connections between words and concepts and navigate your world more easily.

Get the right activity – for every brain.

No two people are the same. With 4 activities ranging from simple to complex, there's something in Category Therapy to match your needs. Work through them gradually or focus on the activity that best suits your needs.

1) Find: Start with the basics. You'll hear and see a photo of a category (let's say "Fruit"). Tap the item that matches (for example, a banana).

2) Classify: Switch it up. Now you start with an item and choose the category that matches. This tests your ability to apply categories to what you see.

3) Exclude: Challenge yourself. By choosing an item that doesn't belong, you learn how to independently identify categories. As things get harder, you can always tap Hint for some help.

4) Add One: Train yourself to recognize common features of items – to categorize them – and then choose one item that fits the category you’ve identified.

When you're done, share your progress. The app makes it easy to quickly e-mail detailed reports to a therapist or loved one.

Get every feature you need in one easy app.
