Video Game for Speech Therapy

Video Game for Speech Therapy

An Ontario based company is enthusiastic to develop a video game that can be used by speech therapists as a rehabilitation tool while the company will avail the financial support from the provisional government.

David Orazietti, a member of provincial parliament for Sault Ste. Marie, had announced a $713,200 aid for Algoma Games for Health (AGFH), a division of the Sault Ste. Marie Innovation Centre (SMIC), which is working on the game, on behalf of the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation.

“We are continuing to build on the progress we have made improving health care infrastructure and front-line services in Sault Ste. Marie by making investments that are delivering measurable results, including this initiative that will provide stoke victims with interactive rehabilitation therapy to help improve their quality of life”, added Orazietti.

Further, he claimed that these investments reveal organizations support for natives who genuinely need health care therapies.

Additionally, the Executive Director of the Sault Ste Marie Innovation Centre, Tom Vair, said that the financial grant from the province’s NOHFC will facilitate the Algoma Games for Health to and take this product to its final stage of completion.

Meanwhile, the Algoma University President, Dr. Richard Myers, marked it a matter of honor to work with our partners at the Sault Ste. Marie Innovation Centre on this proposal.
