Parents need to know that Proloquo2Go is an extraordinary communication aid for kids who need talking assistance. The award-winning, multi-user app is set up in a customizable grid that uses colorful icons placed in "buttons." These buttons represent words that kids can tap to say individually or to form complete sentences. This app can be used for a wide range of speech, from very basic communication (a 3x3 grid for the most basic requests, such as food) to creating fluid sentences and conversations (up to an 8x8 grid, providing 64 up-front words, with many more options within categories). Users can also add their own photos and images to create icons, edit existing buttons, move them, or search by keyword.
While there are a number of apps that fall into the category of augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) tools, Proloquo2Go is unique in many ways. The app can increase or decrease the complexity of words and phrases presented based on a kid's current age and vocabulary. Also, the downloadable voices include those of children (British or American, boy or girl). As a result, kids using the app can be represented with more natural voice tones. Kids who can type can also use this app for text-to-speech, with many customizable settings on this feature as well.
Kids can learn how to effectively convey messages of wants, needs, feelings, opinions, social manners, and more using Proloquo2Go. When using the typepad or when image "buttons" are tapped in a meaningful sequence, kids can form detailed sentences ("I am hungry. I want a sandwich, please.") spoken by the app in a kid's voice, if desired. Words are categorized by type (verb, noun, and pronoun) and also a multitude of categories, (food, family, or jobs, for example), so kids can learn to identify part-whole relationships, too. Proloquo2Go can help kids grow in communication, as well as emotional identification and expression.
