ComApp.3: A Road to Better Speech and Hearing

May is Better Speech and Hearing Month through ASHA, which means a month-long spotlight on the various professionals who strive for better speech and hearing outcomes for individuals with speech and hearing difficulties across the country. It goes without saying that speech and language pathologists may have a long and steady climb to make with an individual who has speech and hearing difficulties. These individuals may not have hearing or speech at all, making it that much more challenging to meet their varying needs. At Special Learning, we have taken into account the need for a basic communication resource to meet the needs of individuals who may not otherwise have a voice to communicate themselves.


According to the American Speech-Language Hearing Association (2012), Augmentative and Alternative Communication, commonly referred to as AAC, includes all types of communication excluding speech that are used to express a person’s thoughts, needs, wants and ideas. Individuals that suffer from severe speech and language problems often rely on AAC to either supplement speech that is already in their repertoire or to replace speech that is not functional.


In the age of mobile and tablet devices, communication has become more accessible to individuals who otherwise would not have affordable means to express themselves. It’s specifically for this reason that Special Learning has created a robust, yet simple AAC app that harnesses all of the basic language an individual needs to effectively communicate their basic wants and needs.  The third version of our Communicating Basic Needs app (ComApp.3) provides a fun, easy-to-use interface that allows individuals to express what they want and need on a daily basis. The best thing about this app is how much personalization is available right from the device itself!  Take pictures and record voices to use on the app in the moment!


In support of providing a better future for individuals with speech and hearing difficulties, Special Learning is pleased to extend an amazing discount on this app through the entire month. Get ComApp.3 for an iOS, Android or Kindle Fire device for just $4.99, and give a child the voice they deserve to have!
