Communication Apps, also known as AAC Apps, can be incredibly powerful tools to help a child who is not able to speak learn to communicate with those around him.
These apps are used for children who have difficulty using speech to convey their thoughts and ideas.
You can start with very simple boards that were designed for young children with developmental delays or move up to a more sophisticated device.
There are even specific boards for adolescents that has bigger buttons for those who aren’t ready for the more sophisticated boards, but who need more sophisticated language than a preschooler would need.
For those children, an alternative means of communication could be beneficial.
