Who are we ?

 

GERIP was created in 1989 by Philippe Revy, a speech-language pathologist, and J.Y. Romagne, a computer programmer. 

GERIP specializes in designing digital solutions in the fields of speech therapy, assessment, cognitive and language rehabilitation, brain stimulation for the elderly, the fight against illiteracy, and the acquisition of basic literacy and mathematical skills. GERIP distributes its software in over twenty countries worldwide.

GERIP designs and distributes innovative and effective software that has been scientifically validated to rehabilitate cognitive and linguistic functions, attention, concentration, perception, visual-spatial functions, logic, memory, phonology, executive functions, oral and written language…

GERIP is also a partner in the professional training world with its GENYX software, which targets the fight against illiteracy and the acquisition of basic knowledge. These programs are designed for the acquisition of key skills and basic knowledge (reading, spelling, math…) by adults who are illiterate or by adolescents who have dropped out of school. 

GERIP has strengthened its Research and Development division through a close collaboration with professionals in rehabilitation and 8 neuroscience research laboratories (INSERM, CNRS…). Through these partnerships, GERIP continues to develop new software based on fundamental research in cognitive science and to clinically and scientifically validate its cognitive and language remediation programs.

The know-how and expertise of GERIP are now universally recognized in the international scientific community, as more than 12,000 health professionals successfully use our software. A partnership based on trust has been established with speech language pathologists, health and training professionals, and with institutional and associated partners, as well as training organizations connected with the fight against illiteracy.
