With all the augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) apps currently available, where should you start? Right Here. Speech Button is an app expertly created by a speech-language pathologist and a registered school psychologist (who are also parents!) to help children and adults with special needs who are non-verbal or who have difficulty speaking to communicate. Here's what actual parents and educators around the world are saying about Speech Button...
“An essential app for anyone who has or who works with a non-verbal child. It’s the “little black dress” of AAC apps — a must-have!”
“...Surpassed my expectations! Have been using Speech Button with my students with great success! Please develop more apps like this one!”
“This is an excellent tool for children – its very easy to use, the voice is very clear and the images are bright!”
“... easy to use... and compared to the others, the price is right on the mark – buy this and you won’t be disappointed..love it.”
“It is great to see an app like this out there to help our little ones who have trouble speaking. Easy to use! Thank you.”
“This is the perfect app for getting started with a non verbal client without having to program anything."
“... It’s well made. The voice output is clean... If you have fiddled with many $10 and under AAC apps, you know they can be very disappointing, but this app does what it says and is well done!”
“Simple and effective – highly recommended!”
“... It is so simple, once you download it, you are ready to go!”

With Speech Button, you will find high frequency 'core' vocabulary words and phrases, carefully selected by us (a speech language pathologist and psychologist) because we specialize in working with people who have special needs. In our experience, the vocabulary available in Speech Button can be effective in reducing behaviour problems, increasing participation in educational settings, building independence, and increasing social skills.
Speech Button is comprehensive enough to be used as a primary communication app for many individuals or, as a springboard to a more sophisticated system in the future. Either way, whether you are a parent or professional (or both), Speech Button is the place to start!
Speech Button was designed with both the app user as well as the communication partner (e.g., parent, paraprofessional, support worker) in mind. Inherent in the design of Speech Button, we have worked to address the most common barriers to successful use of aided communication.
Overall, Speech Button was created in response to a need for ready-made, easy-to-use apps that allow children and adults with special needs who are non-verbal or who have difficulty speaking to communicate and enjoy a better quality of life!
