Ratings and Reviews
Great for autism
My boy has autism. He is four and somewhat verbal but extremely hard to understand. He gets so frustrated. This app has been great for giving him a way to tell me what he wants. I payed the extra money to be able to customize boards and it even lets you add pictures, which is awesome for adding his favorite toys and foods.
This app has a nice basic starter page. I wanted to add some specific items, so I went ahead and paid to be able to customize it. It was very easy to customize and easy to put my own pictures in. I recommend this for a simple AAC device or to help a young child learning to communicate.
I don't doubt that it is a good app but I should not have to pay to get a keyboard.
