Many children with autism or speech delay use pictures attached to a board to ask for what they need or say how they feel. These boards are stored in a book which the user carries around with them. Even when they begin to speak, they may be difficult to understand, so they rely on a growing picture vocabulary which can become very unwieldy.

As a mother of a little girl with autism with few words but a lot of pictures, Lisa Domican wanted to keep encouraging her speech development, but wanted to be sure they always had the pictures we needed, wherever they went. This is why she created Grace App for Autism.

During this workshop, you will learn the best way to implement an alternative communication system app on an Pod Touch, iPad, or iPhone in order to reduce the communicative power of inappropriate behaviours.
You will learn to support the independence and mobility of the user in owning their device and the best way to keep it mobile. Lisa also discusses ways to encourage alternative communication goals using the App and answers questions.
