What Lingraphica Users and their Caregivers Are Saying
Therapist would give my husband homework. Now that he’s done seeing her, he’s not sure if answers are correct! With TalkPath Therapy, he knows if the answer is correct or not immediately and can sit at the computer anytime he wants to do the homework!

The representative was concise and clear in her explanation of the issue. The response time is reasonable for the sending out/return of the equipment to resolve the issues.

Paola greeted my husband by name. She explained why she needed all of our insurance information before contacting Carmen. She confirmed that the info we gave her was correct. She was patient and interested in answering our questions. She promised follow-up email and to be available in the future if needed.
— Caregiver of a Person with Aphasia in a Device Trial, 11/20/18
The representative was cheerful, answered my questions thoroughly. I didn’t feel rushed or pressured in any way. I also appreciated her optimistic but realistic appraisal of insurance coverage unknowns. I learned a lot and felt supported around the recovery process partners who’ve had strokes. Unexpected.

[I’m impressed with] the professionalism of the people who work for the company, as well as their caring attitude and approach to the client. Also…everyone associated with the company is completely committed to doing all that they can do to make sure that one feels like a real asset to the company and not just another customer. I loved working with everyone involved with my case! Thank you for the opportunity to say that!!!
