Proloquo is Latin for speak out loud and that’s exactly what it helps people do! It has taken the world by storm and is regularly featured in newspapers such as USA Today and The New York Times, as well as by major TV networks. AssistiveWare won a prestigious BETT Award 2011 for Proloquo2Go earlier this year and Proloquo2Go was featured in CBS’ 60 Minutes last month.
This is an application that changes people’s lives. At $189.99 (USD) Proloquo2Go costs a fraction of the dedicated devices it rivals, which typically cost anywhere between $2500 and $8000. Users and speech-language pathologists love Proloquo2Go and over 200 Assistive Technology centers already include it in client evaluations.
While some people need dedicated devices, an iPod, iPhone or an iPad with Proloquo2Go brings communication within reach of many people with autism, Down syndrome, apraxia, ALS, cerebral palsy and victims of stroke and others who could never before afford a communication device.
