Helping Your Child To Communicate
The ability to communicate effectively is a fundamental difficulty for many children with an Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Communication breakdown leads to frustration for both parent and child. iasku has been designed and developed by our team of psychologists, speech and language therapists and app developers to support your child in communicating more purposefully. Unlike paper-based communication aids, iasku is easy to use in a range of settings and is also highly adaptable to new situations.
- Comes with a range of useful symbols which make sense - communication is logical and meaningful
- You can customise the app by hiding symbols when they are not suitable or appropriate
- You can customise, sort and add new categories
- New symbols are regularly published, available for you to download. Growing your symbol sets is easy
- Allows you to create your own symbols by using the iPad or iPhone camera to create photographs of items that you need
- Provides immediate communication at the right time
- Supports genuine interaction – there is no synthetic voice or inappropriate use of language. All verbal prompts are eliminated
- Fixed missing settings button on iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S.
Ratings and Reviews
Great system for children already using PECS. Handy onscreen prompts and reminders for both user and communication partner to ensure correct exchange. Possibility to add and personalise vocabulary items as well as having an option for adults to respond to the child in a number of ways and timer if the child has been told to wait - ideal for target client group. Great app and well worth it's price!
What a fantastic idea. Easy to use especially the photo option. Working with young children with ASD, I can see how this could be of tremendous benefit to the children and their parents/carers.
Great app, looks really nice too thanks
