Here are just a few of the ways AACorn can make a difference…

● Easy as AAC
Traditional speech-generating apps and devices provide a child with an artificial voice, but they all rely on the same complex (some say outdated) design that requires hunting and pecking in and out of folders, looking for words like a needle in a haystack. Far too often young or more cognitively challenged users struggle to find the words they need! AACorn is a change for good. It’s unique interface is the easiest to learn and use, because it was designed and made for the iPad and with children in mind - not ported from old style speech-generating devices for adults. Instead of hunting and pecking for single words, your child/student makes a word choice and branching pathways with smart suggestions for the next word in a sentence present themselves automatically!

● Go Beyond Words
AACorn is the only AAC app to visually display the connections between words (like branches on a tree), your child see’s the relationship between words, and over time through seeing these repeated they associate meaning to these pairings. It works because it is a more natural approach, and at the same time removes the cognitive requirements usually needed before a child is normally able to use an AAC app.
AACorn bridges the huge gap between low-tech picture cards (PECS) and complex speech-generating apps designed for adults. It can often be more engaging for children, but is also incredibly powerful, making communication more accessible to children including those who cannot yet type or spell or who find the older grid-based systems so frustrating.

Ratings and Reviews

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!
