What is Speak for Yourself?

App store Speak for Yourself (SfY) is an Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) application that was created by speech-language pathologists.  This AAC app turns the iPad into a communication device. It gives a voice to adults and children who are not able to speak or are limited in their ability to express themselves verbally.

Speak for Yourself is being used by thousands of individuals around the world with autism, cerebral palsy, apraxia, and genetic syndromes. Additionally, it is also being used in preschool classrooms to promote word-finding, visual language support, and verbal speech development.

If you know someone who has complex communication needs (CCN), this AAC app bridges the gap between current communication abilities and all that the individual wants to say. Using AAC does not interfere with the development of verbal speech…in fact, it promotes it! Many parents say that using a device to provide communication is the single best thing they did for their child’s verbal speech!
