Description

Proloquo2Go is an award-winning symbol-based communication app that gives a voice to those who cannot speak. Over 175,000 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.

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

With Proloquo2Go, you get more than an app – we’re there for you every step of the way. Our website has free e-learning videos and PDF tutorials, and the Assistiveware Core Word Classroom includes resources for using AAC effectively. You can also connect directly with our AAC community on our Facebook groups. And for any questions you might have, our support team is available by email 7 days a week, and is always happy to help.

What’s new in Version 5.3

In Version 5.3, we’re expanding Proloquo2Go to add support for Dutch-speaking users. We spent about a year researching Dutch core words, grammar and language development. Proloquo2Go now supports both the Netherlands and Belgium with region-specific vocabularies and 9 Text to Speech voices – 4 Dutch and 5 Flemish.

The vocabulary can be configured for English, French, Dutch and Spanish. Bilingual users will love how easily Proloquo2Go addresses their needs in the other supported languages. The app can switch between languages instantly, and even mix languages mid-sentence. The vocabulary retains the same organization across languages, making skills like navigation and categorization easily transferable between languages.

To add a second language, go to Options to find the Speech and Language section. From there, choose Manage Languages to add your second language. To switch between languages while you’re using the app, open the Tools popup. Then tap the Languages button to switch to the other language you’ve set.

This update also includes the new features recently introduced in version 5.2:
• Optimized for the new iOS 11
• Optimized support for 10.5” iPad

Thanks for using our app!
