Description

Proloquo2Go is an award-winning symbol-based communication app that gives a voice to those who cannot speak. Over 200,000 people already use this AAC app as a powerful tool for expressing themselves and increasing their communication skills and language development. Its innovative features let users, parents, teachers and therapists quickly personalize the app. Proloquo2Go is an AAC (Augmentative and Alternative Communication) app used by people with autism, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy and other diagnoses. It is available in English, Spanish, French, and Dutch for iPad, iPhone, iPod touch and Apple Watch. “Users can open Proloquo2Go and begin to use it for effective communication immediately” – Susan Berkowitz, MS-SLP, AAC Consultant. Feature highlights • Crescendo™, a complete research-based core word vocabulary with 10,000+ fringe words • Quickly and easily customizable – everything from the vocabulary to the appearance • Designed for a range of fine-motor and visual skills with options like 23 pre-programmed grid sizes • Use your regional vocabulary and accent with British, Australian and American English, Parisian and Canadian French, Castilian and American Spanish, and Dutch and Flemish. The app also supports bilingual use, and you can even switch languages mid-sentence • 100 natural-sounding free voices across all languages, including children’s voices Research-based Proloquo2Go puts the user’s development first with features based on clinical knowledge and user research. Studies show that just 200-400 words make up 80% of what we say – known as core words. Combined with best practices like modeling, teaching core words has been shown to grow language and communication skills. Our Crescendo™ vocabulary is based on this insight and puts core words front and center for easy access. Grows communication skills Proloquo2Go is one of the few AAC apps designed to support all users, from beginning to advanced. This lets someone develop from single words to full grammatical sentences in the same app. With over 10,000 words available, there’s no limit on what you can say. Our Progressive Language feature reveals words step by step. This helps communicators learn words and their location as their vocabulary gradually grows. Research has shown that consistent placement of objects supports easy recognition, known as motor planning. With this in mind, Proloquo2Go's thematic templates keep core words in the same places throughout the vocabulary. This helps communicators by reducing time wasted trying to find words. Easy customization and accessibility Buttons, pages, navigation and access - the whole app is customizable. With just a few taps, you can make it suit both vocabulary and accessibility needs. For the most important things to you, you can add your own buttons. The app comes with more than 25,000 symbols for new words – but you can use your own photos too. Accessibility settings support scanning and Apple’s VoiceOver, for users with fine-motor challenges and vision impairments. These make the app work with how you’re comfortable using it. Comprehensive support We’re there for you every step of the way. Help articles in the app are there whenever you need them. New to AAC? Our website has background resources in the Learn AAC section, and the AssistiveWare Core Word Classroom includes activities for teaching AAC effectively. You can also connect directly with our AAC community on our Facebook groups. If you have any questions, our support team is available 7 days a week, and is happy to help.

Joan Bruno’s Gateway to Language & Learning© vocabulary is available as in-app purchase (English only).

  • No legacy support for older IPads?

    Waiting to hear from support but seriously....I have to buy a new IPad because it won’t run on two perfectly good older iPads? Why isn’t there legacy software that will work on OS9*?
  • Empowering

    Although we’re still just getting started this software is already proving to be empowering, proving my non-verbal son has more to say than we sadly ever gave him credit for. Definitely a learning curve, but given the stakes and the customization available, it’s not too bad. Can’t wait to watch him advance with it, hopeful he continues on his current trajectory! Thank you!

    Logan brings his IPad with this app every where we go and especially school. I wish that it was an app that every child in his class that would benefit from it could afford. It’s a bit pricey but worth every penny. ~The Caldwell’s
  • Making a choice

    It would be nice to be able to activate a pop up screen that allows student to only have a choice of two items so for example only 2 buttons that say cheese or bread so that they don’t keep choosing all other items that ar not a available at the moment.

    This app has been perfect to give my non-verbal son with autism a functional means to communicate. His behaviors have decreased. I have recommended this app to many others and even for people who have communication issues due to stroke, neurological issues,etc
  • Great app!

    Thank you so much! As a primarily nonverbal transgender woman with autism, your app has granted me the ability to communicate again after I suddenly and without warning lost my voice at 23 due to extreme post-traumatic stress disorder. Thank you so very much!
