Description

This easy-to-use AAC and choice board app was suggested and edited by special needs teachers to help nonverbal kids participate in class. Users tap a button and the iPad, iPhone or iPod touch speaks the button text aloud in either a boy's or girl's voice. Screen choices include yes/no, alphabet, numbers, interactive speaking clock, skip counting, opposites, world map, US coins, bullying, getting dressed, using the bathroom, seasons, emotions, BINGO, body parts, life cycle of a butterfly, custom screens with editable text and pictures.

Educators and parents can switch screens by sliding one finger from the upper right to the lower left of the iPad screen. Alternatively, turn on the settings and arrow buttons to let kids switch screens. Choose from over 100 prebuilt screens with colorful buttons. Request additional screens or features using the feedback buttons on the settings screen. A Spanish-language version is also available.

SWITCH USERS: Students with dexterity challenges can use a 2-button Bluetooth switch with Verbal Me. First, open your iPad or iPhone Settings app. In the Bluetooth section, turn on Bluetooth and connect to the switch device. In General / Accessibility / Switch Control, turn on Switch Control, set the Scanning Style to Manual, and create a switch for “Move to Next Item” and another for “Select Item.” Finally, open Verbal Me and move between buttons and speak using your 2 switches.

Ratings and Reviews

Ios8 made trouble, I think

SueJ4

Great, simple app for communication needs. We had just begun using it with a student via single switch (screen touch) and auto scan through iOS built-in "switch access". After ios8 upgrade, auto scan abruptly switches after a choice has been selected. We are seeing this in the Yes/No page when No is chosen. The focus jumps almost simultaneously back to Yes. Hope this can be fixed so we can continue using this fantastic app!

Best app for limited verbal ability

Temptabo

We love this app. Our daughter needs a lot of help with making herself understood. This app is easy to use, bright and colorful and is geared towards the younger child. This is absolutely the best app we have tried for this purpose and I encourage others to give it a try. It is affordable as well which is nice since a lot of autism apps are prohibitively expensive. I am very pleased with this product.

Awesome!

That teacher

I am a teacher of student with Autism and I use this app in my classroom every day for several different activities. The buttons are simple but engaging for students and they love to make choices on this app. If you are considering buying this app, I would HIGHLY recommend it. I have downloaded tons of apps for communication and this is by far my favorite and the most user friendly. It's awesome!!!
