The Power Of Avatalker AAC
Vocalizing thoughts, needs, and emotions give us power. Self-expression is the key to empowerment and independence. Children and adults with expressive learning disabilities like Autism may not have been born with the gift of speech, but they still have the desire to communicate with those around them.
Avatalker AAC is a unique learning system that was created in the form of an app to allow these special kids and adolescents to express their needs, hopes, wants, and desires with ease.

Why Avatalker AAC is Right for Educators and Their Students
Avatalker AAC offers customizable features that work for every situation. It’s an augmentative and alternative communication solution that can be used right out of the box with no training or special programming.
Stages Built for Expression at All Levels
Most AAC apps lump all of their features under one umbrella. Avatalker AAC separates “wants and needs” selection from its phrase-building features, so your nonverbal child or student can learn to use the app without being overwhelmed by unneeded clutter on the screen. This makes communicating easy, right “out of the box!”
Avatalker AAC comes fully configured with preset phrases and items. It can be further customized with images, photos, and phrases to fit any child’s needs and understanding. Stage one addresses wants and needs. When a picture or icon is tapped, a word or phrase is instantly spoken.
Stage two is more advanced. In this stage, a child can build phrases or full sentences utilizing its powerful grammar tools. For ease of navigation, the vocabulary is arranged in categories by semantic association to improve navigation ease.
Fully Customizable Interface
Every part of this app can be customized! Construct your own phrases and vocabulary, or upload photos quickly and easily to personalize the app. Adjust the button sizes to make appropriate tap targets for most any level of motor ability. If they’re capable of interacting with a touch screen, Avatalker AAC can be adjusted to suit their needs! Activate or deactivate the Grammar Menus as needed. The best part is everything is 100% scalable to fit any user’s needs.
