Proloquo2Go ($189.00) Proloquo2Go™ is product from AssistiveWare that provides a full-featured communication solution for people who have difficulty speaking. It brings natural sounding text-to-speech voices, close to 8000 up-to-date symbols, powerful automatic conjugations, a large default vocabulary, full expandability and extreme ease of use to the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.

Answers ($3.99) Answers:YesNo was designed with one purpose in mind - To provide an easy to use, affordable way for a nonverbal young man with autism and motor planning issues to communicate with those around him. Answers:YesNo HD takes this original iphone program and improves it for the unique qualities of the iPad… including the addition of user customizable buttons with text and/or pictures.

TapSpeak Button ($49.99) TapSpeak Button modernizes the idea of a mechanical switch that records and plays a single message. We’ve taken the idea and extended it to provide a portable, convenient, and stigma-free tool to use for basic teaching and communication tasks.
TapSpeak Sequence ($29.99) TapSpeak Sequence for iPad revolutionizes how parents, speech therapists, vision therapists, schools, and institutions create and use message sequences to help disabled children learn to communicate. Use TapSpeak Sequence instead of sequential message switches to record and customize messages without losing any previously recorded sequences.
TapSpeak Choice ($99.99) TapSpeak Choice for iPad is our interpretation of a low- to mid-tech communicator for the iPad. It’s a complete communication board editor and player that saves up to 75% of the setup time over conventional devices and virtually eliminates maintenance time. Use the DynaVox/Mayer-Johnson PCS library, your own photos or images, and geometric symbols for visual targets. You can record your own voice for playback (a set of sample libraries include a pre-recorded voice).


Dragon Naturally Speaking

ClickySticky ($.99) Kids will have a blast using their imaginations with this fun new animated sticker book app. Each sticker character can be scaled, rotated and dragged onto each imaginary scene. Our initial launch includes ocean, aviation, space, dolls, and safari scenes.

Conversation Builder ($5.99) ConversationBuilder™ (Patent Pending) is a Conversation Simulator designed to help elementary aged children learn how to have multi-exchange conversations with their peers in a variety of social settings. The auditory pattern of conversation is presented in a visual format to help students recognize and master the flow of conversation.

Students learn when it is appropriate to introduce themselves, ask questions, make observations and change the subject of the conversation. Being able to converse with peers is the cornerstone of developing relationships, and ConversationBuilder™ promotes development of this skill in a fun and engaging way.

Minimal Pairs

 ($29.99) “Pocket SLP – Minimal Pairs” offers two different activities to help improve phonological processes. A “Receptive Mode” which requires students to identify which of the words in the pair contains their target sound(s) and an “Expressive Mode” where they are cued to say both words. Data tracking buttons are provided for therapists, parents, and teachers to enter whether the response was correct, incorrect, or approximate. Highly detailed diagrams provide side-by-side images that highlight correct/incorrect tongue positioning. Pocket SLP offers three highly specific report formats.
