    Daniel is a 27 y.o. Man who has visual issues, little speech, an iPad, and wants to learn Literacy & Numeracy. Currently has a home tutor for literacy-very basic, but wants more. Also have probs with physical access to iPad.
    Question:Is it possible to get a large interactive touch screen device (25-27 inch) with some of your program’s and apple apps loaded onto/into it to enable Daniel to develop literacy and numeracy skills? Would be interested in your thoughts.
    Thanks Jane (Mum)
    Ps has proloq2go on one iPad, but your program for $450 sounded far more interactive.

      Hi Jane,
      Thanks for your questions. I have sent you and email to discuss supports for Daniel in more detail. It is certainly possible to load software onto a touchscreen, but not the apps. I look forward to discussing this further with you.

    My son is going for a new AAC evaluation in July at children’s hospital in Denver Co. He will also receive a IEE at the beginning of next school year. I am hopeful we can get training on his IEP as his technology doesn’t come out of his back pack all day although proloquo2go is to be used to “augment his communication.

  3. We developed an AAC App for iPad because many of the apps were too difficult for the adult stroke patients in our caseloads. We developed CommunicAide AAC/Speech Therapy for the iPad which is simple to use and personalize. It includes live male / female voice overs, real photos, a body chart and Pain Meter. It is organized into categories with a phrase tray and the ability to store the phrases they create. It has been very functional for our adult CVA, PPA, and TBI pts as well as for nonverbal Autistic population.
    More info can be found on our website.
    Thank you
