I can finally talk!!

Mbardous

This is a great app! I'm an SLP working in rehab and home care. Not all our patients need or can afford a device that costs thousands. It is easy to use and family can easily learn how to customize it even more after they are trained. Because the app is affordable, it is easy to convince facilities and families to purchase it. I will always remember the first time my patient used it to say "I love you" to her son after years of saying only "Yes, yes!" Thank you for the wonderful tool!!

A MUST!!!!!

Amazing program! I am an AT Specialist and this program is amazing. It can obviously be used as a communication tool, but can also be customized for anything, including choice boards, IEP goals, schedules, and anything else you can imagine.
The customer service for this app is also second to none. I have asked questions and the response is lightning quick. They are patient and kind when responding. And the fact that the program uses the cloud to back up the data is so much easier and well thought out than using another program that uses Dropbox. You simply put in your user name and password and your data is there. I cannot recommend this highly enough for those who work with special Ed students or those with disabilities. Also in my opinion the workspace is totally worth the money. It makes it so much easier to program the students devices using workspace.
Once again this is amazing product and I highly recommend it.

Teachers of students with severe cognitive disabilities need this one

I have used MyTalkTools in my classroom for two years. My colleagues have noticed how much more their students interact with curriculum content both on an independent level and a supported level. They have worked at getting iPads and this app into their classroom too. Do go through all the detailed training because this is a very powerful tool and can do a lot without investing a bit of time to understand it you can miss parts that may be very useful.

With all the push to evaluate teachers on student achievement MyTalkTools can be a wonderful tool to help with communication and assessment of any curriculum if a student doesn't already have a communication device or alternate mode of communication.

Try it out with Apple TV mirroring on your LCD projector for the whole class to follow along.
