2. Interactive Positive And Negative Feedback Reinforcement Using Voicings Of Encouragement

3. Randomly Generated Graphics To Prevent Memorizing Stimuli Placement

4. Clear Crisp Human Voice

5. Exercises Repeatable With No Limits

6. Incorporation Of Design Suggestions From Caregivers And Speech Pathology Community
