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 simple sentences. Clinicians and caretakers can use SPEAKall!® to target functional communication skills and facilitate natural speech and language development. The app can be used within an exchange-based communication approach to make an easy transition from picture communication books. SPEAKall!® is customizable to each learner’s specific needs by allowing the clinician or caretaker to use recorded audio and custom images from any library or the iPad camera. When working with the application use graphic symbol sets and systems designed for AAC users to obtain the best results. SPEAK MODalities LLC was formed as an outgrowth of the initial success of SPEAKall!® and is Purdue University’s exclusive licensee for this technology. It is our intent to continue developing significantly improved versions of SPEAKall!® and related future products based on ongoing feedback from users, clinicians, and caretakers. Our major goal is to make offerings that are affordable. We are dedicated to taking this app and upcoming developments from Purdue University in exciting new directions.
