Mother develops app to help her autistic daughter communicate

Shared by Patricia Pereira on 2015-08-05 15:13

About the solution

The key to "Talk Different," Spitz says, is the ease and accessibility that allows lost travellers, the vocally- or hearing-impaired or other verbally isolated users to construct messages on smartphones or pads that virtually anyone else will understand.

Users select drawings and photos of various figures, situations, emotions or ideas, and combine them with colour, sound, text and other evocative content to construct what become easily identifiable messages or questions.

It was introduced for purchase and downloading on Google Play and Apple Store in nine international languages.

About the author

Marie Spitz, from France, developed the "Talk Different" app that uses 700 images, colours, icons and sounds to create messages based on alternative communication techniques she practised to interact with her daughter Pauline, whose autism severely limits her speech capacity.
