So Much 2 Say- Picture Communication

So Much 2 Say- Picture Communication by Close 2 Home Apps, LLC is a wonderful AAC app with easy to use features for you and your child. You can choose weither to have 1 to 6 objects per page, and optional passcode to protect the edit mode, record your own voice to go with the pictures, and more. This app can be used with just about any child as it is so easy for children to use. I loved that it was so easy to add your own pictures to it with the iPad2's camera but that it also comes with so many already built in pictures. The pictures included already are lifelike and not like some others that have stick figures and cartoon drawings. My friends son who just started using another AAC app was able to use this one quickly with very little prompting as a supplement until he gets familiar with doing whole sentences on his other AAC. My friend also liked the fact that you can add new catagories.  I found that I was able to use this app with my own children differently then an AAC app but as a speech learning tool as it is so easy to use and put pictures on and voice recordings. I would put two pictures up and make them say what they were using the microphone. They love hearing themselves back and it helped having the pictures for them. My kids have done this now with many of the pictures included and they can hear back if it doesn't sound right and they want to keep trying until they get it right. I also use it as a choice board when they are being stubborn and don't want to talk or are frustrated and can't seem to get the words out this app really helps. I highly recommend this app as a AAC starting app and/or supplement to another AAC, a speech learning tool, or as a choice board. :)
