Back to School AACessAbility Sale: For a limited time save a huge 50% on the regular price of AACorn. Get the top user rated assistive communication solution for non-verbal and speech delayed children for less than half the cost of traditional last-generation grid-based options.
AACorn is the only speech generating (AAC) app to go beyond 'buttons that speak' by also focusing on language learning and comprehension, and is featured in Apple's "Accessibility" AND "Special Education" Collections of recommended iPad Apps.
AACorn delivers a number of world-firsts for children with non-verbal Autism, Apraxia, Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, MS, developmental delays or difficulty learning language. It replaces the outdated grid of folders layout used by last/current generation AAC apps and devices (where far too often children can’t find the words they need), and introduces a break-through design that is much easier to use and often leads to surprising outcomes!
Through an innovative visual interface we call the Word Tree™ your child makes a word choice and branching pathways with smart suggestions for the next word in a sentence present themselves! By focusing on the relationships and connections between words we are modelling language skills while reducing the need for ‘hunting and pecking’ for hidden single words.
aacorn offers a unique language learning system that provides opportunities to increase your child’s use of new and novel vocabulary! Here is just some of the feedback from leading independent speech experts:
• "aacorn signals a revolution in the way we provide AAC support to children.. The first to really capitalize on the strengths of the iPad" - Professor Sue Fletcher-Watson (University of Edinburgh).
• "BridgingApps highly recommends Aacorn AAC app and think this app has great potential for kids needing help with making sentences as well as communicating basic words" - Bridging Apps (Easter Seals)
• "LOVE the word tree! If I needed an AAC this is the kind of interface I would want!" - Dr Robin Parker (PraacticalAAC)
• "My son achieved more in 1 week with aacorn than he did in 2yrs with PECS and Go Talk Now" - SaraB (USA)
aacorn bridges the huge gap between low tech communication boards (PECS) and complex AAC apps designed for adults. It can often be much more engaging for children, but is also incredibly powerful, making communication more accessible to all children, including those who are wrongly deemed too young or 'not ready' because they cannot yet type or spell, or who find the older grid-based systems so frustrating.

Fantastic aac app
My son is 6 and basically nonverbal, what words he can say are approximations and very hard to understand. With this app he is able to speak in complete sentences and get out exactly what he wants. It was very easy for him to figure out how the organization works and the word trees that adapt to sentences that you normally use saves the aggravation of searching for words. There are many words to choose from, but adding more words and pictures is very simple. We have trailed a lot of aac apps and AACORN is the most successful with our son and very affordable. Thank you!
My 5 year old now has a voice
My son has a vocabulary of about 15 words. With Aacorn he is not limited by the words he can say, now he has thousands at his fingertips. I love that I can customize his words, add photos of his own toys and family members. The word prediction tree makes finding the right word easier and faster. I wish I would have found this app earlier! Thank you Aacorn for giving Billy a voice.
Great for growing with your child!
Fantastic ap! Simple enough for my child to pick up at a very young age(love how the main screen isn't overwhelming with too much), but with enough meat so to speak that it's continued to grow with him as he's gotten older and more skilled with it. The company who makes it is wonderful about really listening to the community and striving to improve and already great product. Love!
