Description

Proloquo2Go is an award-winning symbol-based communication app that gives a voice to those who cannot speak. Over 200,000 people already use this AAC app as a powerful tool for expressing themselves and increasing their communication skills and language development. Its innovative features let users, parents, teachers and therapists quickly personalize the app. Proloquo2Go is an AAC (Augmentative and Alternative Communication) app used by people with autism, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy and other diagnoses. It is available in English, Spanish, French, and Dutch for iPad, iPhone, iPod touch and Apple Watch. “Users can open Proloquo2Go and begin to use it for effective communication immediately” – Susan Berkowitz, MS-SLP, AAC Consultant. Feature highlights • Crescendo™, a complete research-based core word vocabulary with 10,000+ fringe words • Quickly and easily customizable – everything from the vocabulary to the appearance • Designed for a range of fine-motor and visual skills with options like 23 pre-programmed grid sizes • Use your regional vocabulary and accent with British, Australian and American English, Parisian and Canadian French, Castilian and American Spanish, and Dutch and Flemish. The app also supports bilingual use, and you can even switch languages mid-sentence • 100 natural-sounding free voices across all languages, including children’s voices Research-based Proloquo2Go puts the user’s development first with features based on clinical knowledge and user research. Studies show that just 200-400 words make up 80% of what we say – known as core words. Combined with best practices like modeling, teaching core words has been shown to grow language and communication skills. Our Crescendo™ vocabulary is based on this insight and puts core words front and center for easy access. Grows communication skills Proloquo2Go is one of the few AAC apps designed to support all users, from beginning to advanced. This lets someone develop from single words to full grammatical sentences in the same app. With over 10,000 words available, there’s no limit on what you can say. Our Progressive Language feature reveals words step by step. This helps communicators learn words and their location as their vocabulary gradually grows. Research has shown that consistent placement of objects supports easy recognition, known as motor planning. With this in mind, Proloquo2Go's thematic templates keep core words in the same places throughout the vocabulary. This helps communicators by reducing time wasted trying to find words. Easy customization and accessibility Buttons, pages, navigation and access - the whole app is customizable. With just a few taps, you can make it suit both vocabulary and accessibility needs. For the most important things to you, you can add your own buttons. The app comes with more than 25,000 symbols for new words – but you can use your own photos too. Accessibility settings support scanning and Apple’s VoiceOver, for users with fine-motor challenges and vision impairments. These make the app work with how you’re comfortable using it. Comprehensive support We’re there for you every step of the way. Help articles in the app are there whenever you need them. New to AAC? Our website has background resources in the Learn AAC section, and the AssistiveWare Core Word Classroom includes activities for teaching AAC effectively. You can also connect directly with our AAC community on our Facebook groups. If you have any questions, our support team is available 7 days a week, and is happy to help. Discounts available with Apple’s educational Volume Purchase Program – 50% off on 20 licenses or more. Joan Bruno’s Gateway to Language & Learning© vocabulary is available as in-app purchase (English only).

    I’ve always liked Proloquo2Go but a coworker likes speak for yourself. I now can say I have a search in Proloquo2Go . Now I’m wondering if you can make a hide feature! I also forgot I think you have a feature that you can use if a kid perseverates on a button and it continues to just speak speak speak.. I forgot how you can fix/help that.
  • Love Proloquo2Go!

    Purchased for a different reason than most: to learn Spanish—it seems to work great for that! Love the long-press to get verb tenses and more. Since I’m a visual learner, the symbols for Spanish words reinforce learning. I get the spoken voice for each word and also the entire sentence. Also enjoy Keeble Spanish keyboard as well. If you’re wondering if you can use it to learn another language, I would say yes—get it while it’s half price!

    We purchased this several years ago for my son, he also uses it at school. After adding folders/vocab words only to have him delete them, I’m giving up. Plus, the interface is so overwhelming it’s hard for him to find the right words to use. Disappointing, I really wanted this to work.
  • Great app!

    Happy that such an app exists. Our toddler who we suspected to be on the spectrum before his second birthday has been using this app for about the past 6 months. He turned three not long ago and has been learning how to communicate using the app with the help of his therapists. I really like that it can be customized for early learners such as my toddler. The only reason I give it four stars is because he uses this app on the iPad, but for some reason he has trouble swiping up/down for some reason even after we try to show him over and over again. We were told it’s probably a fine motor issue. For now, we all swipe the page for him to access the rest of his icons. I would love it if the ability to swipe left to right were included since he is able to do that with no problem.

  • No legacy support for older IPads? Resolved

    This issue has been resolved. Anyone wishing to load on an older IPad needs to contact Support for information. I’m not sure if we are missing any functionality because of this. (Waiting to hear from support but seriously....I have to buy a new IPad because it won’t run on two perfectly good older iPads? Why isn’t there legacy software that will work on OS9*?)
  • Best communication app available

    I use the app I totally recommend it! The app is the best one out there for communication and has so many voices you can add your own images other ones I’ve seen the voices are seoprate the app is easy to navigate and figure out you can add words change pronounces which I love you can add folders which is helped me figure out were all of the things are though. I use this to communicate becuase I cant speak its the perfect app though not that expensive compared to the other ones I’ve see. The only thing I wish that I could turn off is the news for the app since it drives me crazy to get notifications about new update please make a setting to turn that off other than that it’s good app
  • Great app. You get a lot for what you pay.

    I’m autistic and I have seizures as well as SPD and complex PTSD. I have Fibromyalgia, lupus and ME (chronic fatigue if you don’t know what it basically is.) and many other diagnosis. This app has helped me communicate when I can’t. I am verbal but some situations cause me to lose my ability to talk. Great quality, great vocabulary, wide selection of voices to choose from. All around great app for anyone with a need to use an AAC.
