For far too many children - especially those who are young, pre-literate, or have more severe cognitive issues - assistive apps and devices that require hunting and pecking for words hidden in folders are far from ideal - not just because they are hard to use and the words very hard to find, but because often children don’t even know what they are looking for!
AACORN is a modern alternative designed FOR CHILDREN. The first app to go beyond 'buttons that speak' and instead offer a friendly naturalistic approach that is much easier to use, and is the only app that 'learns' about YOUR child and encourages a real understanding and use of rich language including grammar!
AACORN has been widely acclaimed by language professionals, schools and families as the first assistive communication solution to really focus on helping children to communicate in full sentences - and is having incredible results in schools and homes across the country. Even better aacorn is available at a break-through price that is less than 1/3rd the price of traditional assistive speech apps!
Aacorn is so much more than another assistive communication (AAC) app with buttons that speak when pressed!
Aacorn introduces a clean and clear system of branching pathways we call the ‘Word Tree’. Your child makes a choice and new branches with suggestions for new words present themselves AUTOMATICALLY as your child needs them.
This innovative design means no more ‘hunting and pecking’ for words hidden in grids or folders! No requirement to be able to read or spell! No need for a child to have an exceptional memory to find words, and no more hard to identify stick-figure word pictures or robotic voices. Aacorn is designed for pre-literate users of ALL ages and abilities. Truly the next generation!
Available for iPad, iPad Air, iPad mini.
