We are building more options for parents, educators and clinicians to teach our children to use their voices for a more successful future.
Current devices commonly used to teach our children - such as Alternative Augmentative Communication Systems - do not ask our children to use their own voices.
AAC devices generate speech from the device; it is one dimensional. They do not illicit interaction through vocalization from the child.
AAC devices were introduced in the 1950's and were not designed for children with autism. Many of these devices and software continue to be cumbersome - as shown in this demo.

Think about it. Where would you be without speaking?
One of our core goals is to create teaching options that encourage our kids to use their voices. We do not believe in giving up on our children because they were labeled nonverbal.
