CommunicAide: AAC / Speech Therapy iPad App

Developed by two experienced speech language pathologists, CommunicAide is directed at the thousands of people each day who live with the long lasting effects of Aphasia and other language disorders. CommunicAide offers the largest selection of real photographs and real human voices to date for nearly any situation, as well as the ability to import your own photographs for a truly customizable experience. Through an extremely user friendly interface, this app allows those living with language disorders the ability to communicate their wants and needs to others. By simply selecting a photo and/ or phrase, users can formulate complete sentences and questions, providing them with a new sense of independence and freedom of expression. Both speech language pathologists have been using CommunicAide at the LIU/Post speech and hearing clinic with remarkable results. Hope4Speech in conjunction with Objectgraph hope this app will help to improve the quality of life of its users.
