Description

Proloquo2Go is an award-winning symbol-supported communication app. It provides a voice to over 150,000 individuals who cannot speak. The app is designed to promote language development and grow communication skills. Its innovative features support users, parents, teachers and therapists to quickly personalize the vocabulary and settings. “Users can open Proloquo2Go and begin to use it for effective communication immediately” – Susan Berkowitz, MS-SLP, AAC Consultant. Proloquo2Go is used by people with autism, down syndrome, cerebral palsy and other diagnoses. It is available in English, Spanish and French, including regional and bilingual support. The app can be used on iPad, iPhone, iPod touch and Apple Watch. Research-based Did you know that 200 to 400 words account for 80% of what we say? And that most of these core words are not nouns but verbs, pronouns, prepositions, etc.? Proloquo2Go’s research-based Crescendo™ vocabulary puts core words front and center for easy access. Core words combined with AAC (Augmentative and Alternative Communication) best practices can greatly improve the user’s language development and communication skills. And this is not only for trained therapists; parents, siblings, teachers, friends and peers can and should participate too! Find out more at bit.ly/core-words. Growth of communication skills Proloquo2Go is one of the few AAC apps that covers all users, from beginning to advanced communicators. Its research-based Crescendo™ vocabulary offers three levels: Basic Communication, Intermediate Core and Advanced Core. It's easy to switch levels within the same vocabulary while retaining your customizations. To make sure users reach their full potential, we recommend using a large grid size. With Progressive Language you can hide buttons showing only the most important ones, and reveal vocabulary in a developmental sequence as communication skills grow. Language development To support language development, we have created templates to keep core words on a consistent place throughout the vocabulary. This takes advantage of one of the ways we learn how to do things - motor planning. We have used these templates for the folders we created, but you can also use them to create folders yourself. In addition, Proloquo2Go offers full grammar support that is customizable to the user’s level. Easy customization We have pre-programmed Proloquo2Go with over 10,000 words, so you only need to do some fine-tuning to personalize the vocabulary. To add your own buttons you have access to more than 20,000 SymbolStix symbols or you can use your own photos. Quickly create new pages with our (activity) templates. Use the many accessibility settings like scanning for users with fine-motor challenges or Apple’s VoiceOver for users with vision impairments. Buttons, pages, navigation and access - it can all be customized with just a few taps. Feature highlights • Research-based vocabulary with three levels • 23 pre-programmed grid sizes • Core words located consistently throughout the vocabulary for motor planning • Quick and easy customization • Many accessibility features for users with fine-motor and visual impairments • Customizable grammar support for verbs, nouns, pronouns and adjectives • More than 60 natural-sounding free Text to Speech voices, including children’s voices Support We don’t leave you after purchase - our support team is available 7 days a week at support@assistiveware.com and always happy to help.

    Over all this is a really good app However it needs a lot more voice options , there needs to be more diverse voices and more range in the voices. So far all the voices are mostly white if not for the Spanish language vocabulary set. This needs addressing Additionally there needs more grammar supports and ability to ad to or edit the grammar supports or make a work have both bpverb noun supports This also really needs to be available on Android. More languages eventually would also be good, like polish and Irish and finish
  • A Positive Behavior Modifier and Freedom Giver

    As a multi-disabled woman who is nonverbal, deaf, partially blind, mild autistic and slightly physically disabled, I found this app, Proloquo2Go a helpful in modifying my behavior to match my age in a positive way and liberates me from using communication partner (the interpreter) by giving me the degree of freedom to communicate with the hearing people while I am on trip for various activities such as shopping. This app was very helpful in preparing me for open our world to prove that I can freely communicate with whoever as I am on go. I believe this app has given me the increased degree of independence of communication and social time. It has given me many positive avenues for shaping my future life through undergo a positive behavior modification and positive social time.

    I had problems with an update and because of a bad review, Pam from customer service, contacted me proactively and helped me resolve the issue! One big shoutout to you, Pam! You did your job with great patience and acumen! C'mon, Proloquo, don'tchya think Pam is up for a pay raise? (My idea, not hers!) Anyone who gives this product a bad review does not know how to use it!
  • Backup/Restore seems broken

    When trying to synch across devices, backup and restore is a must. Anyone else having issues with Google account backups? (Otherwise : great app!!)
  • Great! Only one request

    Most reviewers speak of what Proloquo2Go can do for children with communication difficulties. But it is important to point out that it is also a powerful communications tool for adults who have lost their ability to speak due to neuromuscular disorders or other conditions. I lost my voice to primary lateral sclerosis and have been relying on AAC technology since 2007. I've been using Proloquo2Go since the first iPad came out. I love having the power of sophisticated speech in a lightweight package. I especially appreciate the amazing customizability that gets increasingly powerful with each update. I've created well over a thousand custom buttons that get me through most of the situations I encounter, from shopping through doctor visits. The variety of available voices and the ability to assign different voices to different buttons adds a little fun to the day. My one wish is to be able to import a sound and assign it to a button.

    I have used this app with hundreds of kids with great success and recommended it to many schools in the past. I have conducted district wide trainings on how to program. This versions programming is not at all intuitive and has lost its ease of use. I myself am frustrated and am finding myself utilizing other communication apps. Sad because this really is the best when it comes to features but now takes a far back seat to those that are more intuitive in programming
