Catherine is a Post Doc and Clinical Psychologist who is working on developing three Digital Interventions in Neuro-Rehabilitation (DINR). The first, iTALKbetter, is an interactive word retrieval therapy for with people with aphasia; the second is to help people with dementia remember the names of familiar people, while the third is for stroke patients with visuo-spatial neglect. She uses qualitative methodology to interrogate best-practice co-design with patients with acquired brain injury and their carers.
People with dementia often have problems naming familiar people, which is distressing for them and the people that they are trying to name. They know who the person is, and their relationship to them, it is just that they cannot access the name in word form. Previous work has shown that this condition can be improved by mass practice and adaptive cuing, using photo cards as prompts. With NIHR funding and working with a software team that specialise in gamification (SoftV), we have co-designed a therapy for this condition. Dr Doogan will cover, in some depth, the processes we used in patient and carer co-design (qualitative methodology) both to form the Gotcha! Therapy app and to understand why such patients wish to take part. Prof Leff will then show quantitative data from the app using a case-series approach to see if there were any changes in the participants ability to name trained faces.

There’s something creative about Brighton, so it’s the perfect place to have the conference.
Develop:Brighton is especially unique - it’s by the seaside and there’s a lovely relaxed tone that goes with that.The talks are cool, the networking is cool and having the opportunity to catch up with people – that’s always the excitement for me!
Develop is an excellent way of catching up with people – there’s a really nice community feel here.

Develop is a really great way to network, it’s also great for going to talks and finding that little tip that you didn’t know before and thinking – oh I’ll bring that back to the team!
Develop is a very important place – it’s one of the few developer focussed conferences we have in Europe and that makes it very valuable.
We are so lucky to have Develop here in the UK. It’s a unique event where you can come and discover new things with people who care passionately about video games. It’s a sea full of new ideas.
If you really want to have a good interface with the British game developer community then this is the place to come.
Develop always gets put in the diary. There are many reasons to be here, not just the talks, but the networking, people exchanging ideas about where the industry is right now and where it’s going to. It’s pretty essential to be here I think.
Ian Livingstone, CBE

I’ve felt a big passion here at Develop!
