iReadMore

Word-reading therapy for stroke survivors with acquired reading problems

 

 

What is iReadMore?

‘iReadMore’ is a new reading therapy App designed to improve word-reading speed and accuracy in people who have language problems (aphasia) after stroke.

We are currently running a research study to test whether iReadMore is effective at improving reading ability. If it works, iReadMore will be available to download from this website for a small subscription fee.

 

Can I participate in your research?

We are currently recruiting participants for the iReadMore research study. If you or someone you know has reading and language problems (aphasia) following a stroke, and might be interested in testing iReadMore, then we want to hear from you!

Please click here to download an information sheet about the project – this explains who can participate in the study and what the study involves.

In brief, we are testing two types of therapy together:

  1. The iReadMore reading training app
  2. Non-invasive electrical stimulation of the brain using transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS)

If you are interested in participating in this study then please email z.woodhead@ucl.ac.uk.

 

When will iReadMore be available online?

If our research demonstrates that iReadMore is effective, we will make it available on this website for anyone to use for a small fee.

Our research study will finish in 2016, so look out for updates here on our progress…
