July 15, 2022 – Savannah Speech and Hearing Center received a grant from the Emerging Leaders Committee (ELC) of the Savannah Community Foundation. This grant enables the delivery of Constant Therapy, a digital therapy program personalized for each user and clinically proven to help stroke and traumatic brain injury survivors regain their cognitive, speech and language abilities.
The Savannah Speech and Hearing Center has hosted a support group for survivors of stroke and other conditions affecting verbal communication since the 1980s. Most current members no longer receive rehabilitation therapy despite continuing impairments, including aphasia, inability to sustain attention, problem solve, plan and reason.
Constant Therapy, launched in 2012, published several studies and received US FDA Breakthrough Device designation in 2020, with demonstrations proving that this digital therapy is more effective than traditional paper-based therapy modalities, even for people with severe affected for many years. Constant Therapy’s therapy tasks parallel modern daily activities such as online account management and ticket purchases. Multiple users will be able to enjoy personalized programs designed for their unique needs and preferences. This grant will allow the purchase of a Constant Therapy device as a one-year subscription.
