SPEAKall!® is an evidence-based therapy app specifically designed to introduce augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) in autism spectrum disorders and/or developmental speech and language disorders. SPEAKall! was originally developed by the Purdue University Program for Engineering Projects in Community Service (EPICS) in conjunction with the Purdue AAC Research Lab and the Purdue Speech-Language Clinic. This application has been designed to help children and adults with little to no functional speech acquire an initial symbol vocabulary and learn the process of constructing sentences. SPEAKall! is a versatile learning platform that goes beyond simple symbol activations for voice output by actively engaging the learner in speech and language acquisition. It can be used to target a variety of communication goals including • Functional communication • Natural speech production • Emerging language • Social interaction and social-pragmatic skills SPEAKall! can also be integrated into an exchange-based communication approach to make an easy transition from picture communication books. The interface is easily customizable to each learner’s specific needs and can grow with the learner as needs and capabilities expand. Research and development of SPEAKall! are sponsored by the National Institutes of Health – National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD). SPEAKall! has received strong recognition in the AAC industry as documented by prestigious awards including: • 2016 R&D 100 Award (“Oscars of Invention”) • 2016 Indiana Small Business Innovation Research Company Award • 2016 State of Indiana Certificate of Recognition • 2015 Autism Society of America Outstanding Research of the Year Award • 2015 Best of Education Tech Award at TechPoint Mira Awards • 2014 First Place Award, International Business Pitch Challenge of the German Academic International Network – Transatlantic Entrepreneurship Network • 2013 Purdue Focus Award for Disability Accessibility Thank you for your continued support and please continue to send us your feedback and ideas!
