Abstract

This paper proposes a novel approach to include biofeedback in speech and language therapy by providing the patient with a visual self-monitoring of his/her performance combined with a reward mechanism in an entertainment environment. We propose a toolset that includes an in-session interactive environment to be used during the therapy sessions. This in-session environment provides instantaneous biofeedback and assists the therapist during the session with rewards for the patient's good performance. It also allows to make audio-visual recordings and annotations of the session for later analysis. The toolset also provides an off-line multimedia application for post-session analysis where the session audio-visual recordings can be examined through browsing, searching, and visualization techniques to plan the future session.
