Nonverbal Children and Adults Benefit from Avatalker:

Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) Technology

As you know, the ability to speak is empowering. Having a voice in the world allows you to live a functional, more independent life of your choosing. Children with autism and other expressive learning disabilities may not have been born with the ability to speak, but that doesn’t mean they have nothing to say. Avatalker AAC was designed to give the gift of speech to these special kids and adolescents. With Avatalker, they can express their wants, needs, hopes, and desires quickly and effectively.

Jenny McCarthy
“As our autism numbers grow, so does our need to develop better systems for our children to communicate. When I saw what Aurora Symbols developed I knew immediately that this is the next level of communication we need to get behind. I support them and all their endeavors.”

-Jenny McCarthy

  • Socializing and making friends.
  • Helping parents care for kids who may be impaired or injured.
  • Letting kids order for themselves at a restaurant.

Families Thrive with Avatalker AAC

Avatalker AAC can be used at home, in school or on the go. It only requires an iPad or iPad Mini, so there’s no bulky equipment to carry around. Avatalker takes the guesswork out of conversations by speaking phrases or sentences built by your child. Gone are the days of guessing and playing 50 questions; instead, a few taps on the screen will allow your nonverbal child or student to express themselves clearly. Giving your child a voice will help them (and your family) thrive!

Why Avatalker is Right for You and Your Child

Avatalker AAC has a wealth of features and benefits for you and your child. First and foremost, it provides you with an augmentative and alternative communication solution that anyone can use right out of the box. Its affordable price of $149 means that it’s accessible for all households. Never a charge to update and there’s no subscription to renew. It’s yours for life. You’ll wonder how you ever lived without this robust, full-featured AAC app.

Two Skill Stages, Maximized for Ease of Use

Unlike most AAC apps, Avatalker AAC separates “wants and needs” selection from its phrase-building features, to make it far easier for your nonverbal child or student to learn and to use to express themselves.

stage 2

Stage 1

Stage one addresses wants and needs. It comes out of the box with preset phrases and items, but can be easily customized. With the tap of a photo or icon, a word or phrase is instantly spoken.

Stage 2

Stage two allows the child to build phrases or full sentences utilizing its powerful grammar tools. The vocabulary is arranged, in categories, by semantic association to improve ease of navigation.

Easily Customizable Features and Functions

All parts of this app are customizable! You can upload your own photos and create your own vocabulary and phrases. Button sizes can be adjusted. Grammar Menus can be turned off, and everything is 100% scalable to fit with any user’s needs.

Aurora Symbols

Intuitive and Usable

Avatalker AAC uses the “Aurora Symbol Set” library, which uses illustrations that are more realistic depictions of everyday items than the stick-like figures you’re given with other AAC apps. This reduces frustration in searching for words and results in faster, more accurate communication. Phrases your child builds can be changed into questions by tapping the “question-conversion” button. And phrase-building is optimized to keep finger touches to a minimum.

Adjustable Defaults

All default settings can be adjusted to customize the app for any child! Teachers or caregivers can adjust things like:

  • Skill Stages 1 or 2
  • Button Sizes
  • Voice Options
  • Hiding or activating categories
  • Hiding or activating items/content
  • Hiding or activating subcategories
  • Text line length
  • Hiding or activating specific drop-down grammar menus
