Words at your fingertips!
Just purchased this app and have started to try it out with my son, who types to communicate due to his limited verbal abilities. It's looking like he will be able to express himself with much less effort (won't have to type out those commonly-used words) and the keyboard is always right there so that his communication will not be limited to the preprogrammed options. This app allows for programming his most commonly used phrases, and quickly saving typed messages - and emailing them too - love that! Very easy to navigate…looking forward to adding it to our communication tools!!
It's a bridge to communication!! Can't wait to have my son use it at school!
Introduced this app to my son to increase his expressive language, as well as, learning how to compose his own sentences. I am attempting to work with his special day class teacher to incorporate it into his educational program, be used regularly during his school day. It seems like it has good potential in helping my 12 year old compose his thoughts and opinions. My son is motivated by the voice repeating his sentences. Increasing his communication would likely, alleviate so much of his frustrations. That would be a huge benefit!!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
