Speak up with symbol-based AAC
Not being able to speak isn’t the same as having nothing to say. Children, teens and adults who can’t speak can use this Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) app for iOS as a daily communication tool and to build language skills. From the first time someone opens the app, a few taps are all it takes to start talking to the world.

Our AAC app family has two new members supporting children and parents on their AAC journey.
Built from the ground up with an easy-to-use layout, step-by-step guidance and support, you can easily make communication with AAC a part of your everyday life.

You’ll love how this symbol-based app helps users learn how to express themselves. Proloquo2Go puts the user’s development first, with innovative features based on clinical knowledge and user research.

The app continues to grow with us, and each update brings only greater utility and reward. Rupert is seventeen now, and I can’t see us ever using any other communication format.
