Using mainstream devices for communication

KEYCOMM newsletter Spring 2011

It’s an exciting time for those who use Augmentative Alternative Communication.  Mainstream handheld devices such as the iPhone, iPod touch and the iPad can provide a voice through the use of  communication apps.  Keycomm’s Spring newsletter has some useful information on what apps are available and what skills are required to use the hardware.  If you would like to have a pupil assessed for their suitability for using such a device for communication, contact Deborah Jans at Keycomm on 0131 311 7130 (deborah.jans@ea.edin.sch.uk)

Have a look at this video clip on Proloquo2go, the most comprehensive (and most expensive) communication app. Please note Mr. Jobs….Scottish AAC users need their own voice!
