The TapSpeak family of apps are the go-to Communication apps for children with Autism and multiple disabilities!
TapSpeak apps on the iPad give you the most commonly used tools for emerging communicators and saves countless setup hours and hundreds to thousands of dollars in the process.
Here’s what some users are saying about our latest communication board app, TapSpeak Choice:
“…Bless you, bless you! You have done a wonderful thing by spending all the time and energy to create this app. What a labor of love. I just quickly designed a board to take Ashley and the family bowling this afternoon. Awesome! And I can add buttons while we are there. (No keyboards, no cables…geez, what a gift.) Critical to be able to easily modify on the fly since we are trying to find some good recreational activities again for her. The language associated is paramount to success. Wish you were close so I could give you a big hug!...”
