  • The online subscription allows access to all the modules available so as the user progresses they don’t need to purchase new modules. It feels like an app when downloaded on an ipad
  • The CD version has more functions than the internet version
  • A download version exists for $19.95 per program but works only on Windows, not mac
  • Following/remembering instructions are not functional, everyday tasks – pure therapy tasks
  • High level memory, attention and sequencing tasks
  • Remote access to results is possible as long as the SLT has the user’s login & password.
