All of our apps are designed using therapy principles that have been in use in low- and no-tech therapy for years. You can find a list of references for all the apps here: https://tactustherapy.com/evidence/
One of our apps, Language Therapy 4-in-1, has had independent research conducted on its efficacy. You can find that research published here: https://pdfs.semanticscholar.org/3c67/c3f6e005797f303a5556e862eb55293a54e1.pdf

In general, it makes sense to separate out the therapy procedure from the therapy materials or delivery method, and often apps are the latter. Here's an article further explaining that difference, and showing some of the principles behind our Naming Therapy app.
You can use our apps in a variety of ways and to assist in delivering various types of evidence-based treatment. Look to our How To series of articles to see more about the evidence-based treatments that Tactus Therapy apps can support.
