I really want to share a rather new Augmentative & Alternative Communication (AAC) App that I like and that I have had great success with in my private practice. It is called AutisMate. Some of the things I like on the app are the scenes (instead of layered grid-displays), fantastic visual schedules, and most of all, the price! It is only $149.99. Also, to make things even better they have a Lite Version so you can get a feel for it and see if it will work for you before buying it!
“EASY FOR YOUNG CHILDREN WITH AUTISM Traditional grid-display AAC apps, devices and systems are considered rather advanced and complex, making it difficult for young children with autism and early stage communicators to comprehend. AutisMate’s visual scene displays are easier for young children with autism to understand and use for communication compared to other AAC apps and systems.” To find out more, and to go check it out for yourself go to www.autismate.com.
Those picture scenes are amazing and my clients can navigate them so much easier than the traditional grid-display AAC apps.
Hope you all like it as much as I do!
