CommBoards enables children and people of all ages with limited expressive abilities to express themselves by tapping on a picture or a symbol. The tap is followed by the word being read aloud which in turn encourages oral speech and helps express thoughts and feelings.
We were approached by a father of a child with limited verbal communication skills, with a request to create an AAC (Augmentative and Alternative Communication) app for Android, which would be available in Hebrew, amongst other languages.
From our market research it was evident that there were no AAC apps on the Google Play that had Hebrew and were highly customisable to fit the needs of his child, and the only apps available on the market were for iPad and quite pricey. We worked with the father in order to understand the constraints children with limited verbal communication skills faced, and created CommBoards, an app that is constantly evolving and improving, in order to fit its user’s needs.
