AssistiveWare is at the forefront of augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) and a leader in the assistive technology software market. AAC consists of methods or tools that offer communication alternatives for people who temporarily, intermittently, or permanently cannot speak. AAC covers a range of methods including gestures, facial expressions, body movements, writing or drawing on boards, and can also come in the form of high-tech options such as communication devices and applications.
AssistiveWare’s Proloquo product is a next-generation symbol-based app for iOS that acts as a daily communication tool for non-speaking children, as well as working to develop key language skills. AssistiveWare combined clinical expertise, user feedback and anonymous language data from their existing products to built Proloquo. The app presents a grid of buttons with symbols for commonly used words, enabling their users to communicate with ease.
AssistiveWare’s technology sits at the core of their commitment to helping people with communication difficulties and making AAC an effective and accepted means of communication.
