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.

    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
  • Best AAC App Ever!

    This app is the only truly accessible AAC app for low vision and hard of hearing! Many customization options, parental restrictions, backup and sync options and the best manual & help videos imaginable. You can find the answers to all of your questions on the website. I love that this app will grow/adapt for my son's language development!
  • Great app

    I love the app but I have a suggestion. There is a bug that makes the volume turn down in my phone when the app is opened. This makes me have to perform extra steps to turn the volume back up before I speak. Not sure why that happens but it would be great to get it corrected. Great app.
  • Yes...it has vulgarities

    My wife and I were floored to see the word a**hole! That's not the only degenerate word on the app either. As a parent with a child with a very rare syndrome we are really appreciative to start a journey with our 2 year old. How low has our society sank when an app for children who have developmental needs that are unique comes preloaded with a**hole. Enuff Said! I'm not rating it higher because....
  • Great App!

    P2G has helped my daughter continued to be movitated to communicate. With her limited verbal ability it has helped her to better explain what she is trying to say if we or others don't understand her. Tech support for P2G is also excellent! One helpful note about back-ups - do them and use DropBox!
  • Awesome App
