Day Four: Unlocking Communication with Proloquo2Go

During our fourth class we got to experience first hand the power of Proloquo2Go.  Proloquo2Go is an amazing Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) solution for individuals who have difficulty speaking or cannot speak at all.  

I found Proloquo2Go a very user friendly tool for both the creator and the user.  With Barb's review of how to use the program and a user guide found online, Darcie and I quickly dove into creating a communication board for our case study student Sam.   I was amazed by the power of Proloquo2Go to unlock communication for those who have difficulty speaking or cannot speak at all.  Below are some benefits of this amazing program.

Benefits of Proloquo2Go
  • Supports functional spontaneous communication
  • Facilitates access to social information
  • Facilitates inclusion at home, school, and community
  • Facilitates great independence in the home, school, and community
  • Facilitates access to literacy experiences
  • Reduces frustration
  • Provides voice and ears to individuals with communication difficulties
  • Facilitates an improved sense of self concept
      I encourage you to watch the video below to see for yourself the power of AAC.
