Jan 1, 2016

164-01-01-16 Visual AAC iPad App
Hey there and Happy New Year to you all!  Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs!
With so many AAC devices and apps already on the market, it can be hard to decide which one is best for your particular needs.  The company, Hearty SPIN, has been helping those with speech impairments for more than four years now, and has recently released Visual AAC.    
Visual AAC is an iPad app developed to help individuals with speech impairment or delay to communicate their everyday needs and thoughts effectively using picture cards and visual scene displays.  It may help individuals with:
  • Autism
  • Cerebral palsy
  • ALS
  • Aphasia
  • Apraxia
  • and more!
To learn more about visual AAC, check it out on iTunes.
