Ratings and Reviews
Our daughter has Angelman Syndrome and is non-verbal, this app has truely changed our lives ! She is finally able to effectively communicate with us. She knows pictures and this app allows us to download pics from our camera or pull directly from google. Her speech therapist and teacher at school say it has really helped with her progress and they love how easy it is to use. They go on and pull up pics to help her participate in class almost daily. The storyboards have been great to help with her schedules and completing task. We can also set up choice boards for her. She feels like such a big girl and I can tell she is very proud when she can use this all by herself to tell us what she wants and needs! We have used tons of devices with her over the years and this is by far the best and easiest for her, and us.
Thank you so much for making such a wonderful app and for making it so affordable. Having a child with special needs is such a financial burden, so we really appreciate such a wonderful gift. I just can't say enough about it and have recommended it to our ESE Department at school and to others we know that will benefit from it...Thank you , Thank you, Thank you
Great app--a must have if your child has autism!
Thank you developers for a fantastic app! I have a number of apps downloaded on my iPad for my autistic son, and iCommunicate is by far the most useful and easy to use. My son is only 26 months old, yet he is able to enjoy the program. The add-on for the sound is a must have and extremely easy to record--hearing our voices with the pictures keeps him engaged and interested. For example, the program is so versatile that we could use the built-in function to get a google image of "Itsy Bitsy Spider", and then we used the record function to record us singing the song to him. All he has to do is touch the picture, and he is rewarded with a song! Also, the developers responded almost immediately to a concern I had, and I have no doubt that they will continue to make this program even better. I HIGHLY recommend this application--thanks developers!!!
iCommunicate does the job
This app, created by Grembe, is a great tool for creating visual learning schedules, boards, and pages for learners with significant special needs. There are literally 10,000 images to search from and customize. What I like best about iCommunicate is the ease of customization for any user. Staff in my district that are working with iCommunicate report that they love being able to customize "on the go", creating incidental learning for their students as it is occurring. Plus, the ability to edit and record is extremely user-friendly and non-intimidating to novice users. All in all, a great app at a great price!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
