There are a large number of individuals on the autism spectrum who use the Speak for Yourself app successfully to communicate throughout their day. We love that we get to personally spend time with many children from toddlers to high school students who use Speak for Yourself to tell us who they are…and often tell us what to do! There is also a growing number of autistic adults who use Speak for Yourself to augment their verbal speech. They report using it in times of high anxiety, illness, overwhelming emotion, or situations that are taxing to the sensory system. This group has also been incredibly helpful in improving the Speak for Yourself app with their valuable suggestions and feedback. We are truly honored to be part of so many lives in the autistic community.
