iPad App ‘Proloquo2Go’ Gives the Gift of Voice

Expensive computers that help facilitate face-to-face communication have been overtaken by cool — and relatively cheap — “Proloquo2Go” software and devices like the iPad and iPod. With an iPod Touch, iPhone or iPad and Proloquo2Go, available to download for $189.99 from the iTunes store, someone who needs augmentative communication can have a functional voice for well under $1,000. That’s cheap enough to avoid the labyrinthine process of dealing with insurance, plus the user can access e-mail, browse the Internet, visit social networking sites and do anything an application can do — manage a to-do list, use a daily schedule or text a friend. There’s an important caveat: they must be able to use the touchscreen.
