Some of our speech sessions incorporate the following products, which may also be used at home:
Proloquo2Go™ – an application which can be purchased for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch which serves as a communication solution for people who have difficulty speaking. It brings natural sounding text-to-speech voices, approximately 8,000 up-to-date symbols, a large default vocabulary, and it is highly customizable for each user. Several of our staff members are trained on the uses of this product, and are able to guide parents as to how to set up the application for their own version use in the home.
Training and Workshops for Proloquo2Go:
Barrett now offers a hands-on presentation style workshop, in which participants will learn how to program and use this application. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own devices so they may edit and practice during the presentation. Everyone will leave the session with a PowerPoint style handout highlighting key points of the training. These workshops can be given to a large group, or made specifically for training of a parent or a teacher.
Boardmaker® allows the design of printed materials, like communication boards, sequences, and schedules with Picture Communication Symbols (PCS™). Our therapists use these symbols frequently and can help parents develop a system for their use outside the Cente
